Caregiving is stressful. Forums like this provide a great way for us to connect with others in similar situations, vent a little, find support, and glean information. All very helpful. But speaking for myself I wouldn't mind a little vacation too, even if it's only in my imagination. We've all wished at least ONCE that we could close our eyes and just Be. Somewhere. Else.

So...if you could snap your fingers right now and go anywhere at all, where would you go? A cafe in Paris? A tropical island? An archaeological dig in Peru? Share your dream getaway here, and maybe just for a little while we can "escape" vicariously through one another. Feel free to change your point of destination at any time.

As for me right now...it would be a hammock strung between two palm trees looking out over white sand and green-blue ocean with a frosty fruity DEFINITELY alcoholic beverage in one hand and a good book in the other....ahhhh, paradise!

I also would choose to go back in time above anywhere. I'd like to go to the Dairy Queen in San Antonio where my dad would take me for ice cream and I'd chatter to him about my life while he listened and proudly smiled at my innocence and enthusiasm. I'd give up every dollar I have for just one more hug from my dad. I loved that man more than anything. I miss him every single day.

Dear Bhenson, I would like to go back in time and spend the last ten months of my mother's life with her as well. But as for the nasty, narcissistic cobra I am currently caregiving, not a chance. Once is way more than enough!

Up up and away in a hot air balloon floating over a peaceful green valley like Napa Valley in California or somewhere similar.

Bhenson....I feel like that too....

I would LOVE a safari....that has always been a dream, as well, I am fascinated with nature always have been! There is a crazy video (8 minute) called "Battle at Kruger" you can look up on you tube. it is of the "circle of life/hunt" , It is amazing and not bad to watch! You should look!

Okay this one is different then the rest. I want to be teleported back to a year ago when I was taking care of my mom. I want to do it better and I want to talk to her more then i even did. Strange on this forum after I bit---d so much while taking care of her. I miss her.

Sharynmarie & Mishka - there's a video on YouTube you have to check out (if you haven't seen it already)...in the search box type in "cheetah on jeep, face to face, Masai Mara, Kenya". It's AMAZING!!
BTW sharynmarie, I saw your post about going to Ireland. Can I join you in that pub? I would love a pint of Guinness right now!

Mishka~I know what you mean, it is hard to see a predator hunting even when we understand this is necessary for their survival. I just want to them free, roaming their territory. I have hard time watching gazelles or other prey being taken down. I would cover my eyes!!

Bookluvr--my glass tree house that I had up for awhile is in Japan!!!! I'll go with you!

Sharynmarie- yes, an African safari. Sounds lovely. Can I sit in the middle of the jungles in my glass tree house and watch all the wild animals. But I would want to have blinds to close for when they hunt!! I do not like that part! Poor gazelles.

Today I want to teleport to the wilds of Africa. I know that sounds selfish with all that is going on with aids, rape and the overall treatment of African women but I want to see wild cats...I love the Cheetah especially. I visualize myself with my hubby watching the wildcats in their natural habitat. Here in the USA, I love the mountain lion, bobcats.
