Welcome to Dream Vacation Ideas!
Dear Visitor, My vacation ideas began with one of my most memorable travel experiences in my childhood when my mother, my brother and I set off to Europe to visit relatives, which my mother had not seen in years – whom I had only heard about and never met in person. I was raised in a family of immigrants and being so far from her family, my mom was feeling a bit homesick.
Living in Toronto, Canada, we took the train to Montreal to get to our Greek ocean liner. We spent many days on the ocean, and as children, we made the best of our new experiences and had a lot of fun.
We would have taken a flight over to Europe but my mom had the fear of flying.
While on the ship crossing the Atlantic Ocean, my brother and I were very busy exploring the venues, and as children, we also enjoyed hiding under the tables covered in fancy table cloths in the dining room.
On deck we had the rare opportunity of watching the icebergs and whales off the coast of Canada.
During our voyage across the Atlantic, we encountered some rough waters and the waves did come crashing on to the decks.
I experienced some ocean sickness then but have since grown out of that – and now the ships travelling across the seas and oceans are a bit more steady have smoother sailing.
Our ship landed in the port of Le Havre in north-western France at the mouth of the river Seine on the English Channel. From there we took a train through Paris as we were heading to Eastern Europe.
It was the view of the Eiffel Tower with the glowing moon in the evening sky that sparked my passion for travel and that was the beginning of my endless dreaming of vacation ideas.
My Passion for Photography
My family maintained a lot of domestic skills they learned in Europe, and throughout my childhood, I was exposed to gardening, cooking, baking, knitting and sewing. We would go fishing and camping north of Toronto and I acquired a love for nature and beautiful scenery.
When I got my first camera, I took so many pictures that I developed an eye for photography. I took pictures of my gardens, flowers, trees, birds, my pies and rising bread dough, and eventually anything that caught my eyes artistically such as architecture.

Now, a great part of my vacation ideas includes taking the time to capture the beautiful scenery, grand or unique architecture, and fun memories with friends and inspirational moments where ever I travel.
I Love to Share Hope to Inspire…
I appreciate every vacation I go on, and each trip inspires me so much that I think my enthusiasm rubs off and inspires my family and friends.
With so many questions to answer and photos to share, one day I had a brilliant idea for a new hobby and decided that having a website would be a great way to share my vacation ideas and travel experiences.
My Desire is That My Website Provides Useful Advice
- Valuable and easy-to-use information for planning your vacations.
- Travel ideas you that you may not have thought of.
- Help you with overcoming fears such as a fear of travel, a fear of flying, or trying out new destinations that are somewhat remote.
- I am sharing photographs I have taken which deeply inspire me, with the hope that they will inspire you to do something different and travel outside of your comfort zone.
That, dear Visitor, is my story and I hope you have enjoyed it!
Thanks for visiting…and come again soon!
