Chocolates from Paris - my first giveaway!

I meant to mention this in last night's mega post on our Paris trip, but I brought back something to share with the winner of my first ever giveaway...



This 14 piece assortment is from our very favorite chocolatier, La Maison du Chocolat. I believe they are dark chocolates based on the ribbon color, but the pamphlet gives descriptions of all of the chocolates.

If you'd like to enter, please leave a comment telling me where you would like to vacation (if money wasn't a consideration) and why. The winner will be randomly chosen from all comments received by 9:00 (Pacific time) Tuesday, May 26th. Valid in the US and Canada only (sorry!)

I'm so excited to read about your vacation dreams!

UPDATE: THANKS FOR ALL OF YOUR ENTRIES, BUT THE VOTING IS NOW CLOSED.

Oooh vacation....If money were no object I would love to go to new Zealand. I'm a dork and loved the Lord of the Rings and would love to see where it was filmed. I'd also love to go back to Scotland and see where I lived when I was a little girl, maybe make a stop in Ireland and also go back to Paris. I'll have to come back and hear where everyone else wants to go!

Well if a place I've been before, surely Amsterdam, but close behind are Paris, Lisbon and Andalucia.

One I haven't been to is without a doubt, Venice.

Yøur vacation sounds beautiful and romantic. I love those kinds of magical and refreshing vacations. My hubby and I would love to go back to the Netherlands. We just loved that place. I would revisit places and get lost again like we did every day, but it was fun and exciting!

I'd climb Mt. Kilimanjaro if money were no object!

Awesome giveaway! And I loved all the pics from your trip!

There are a ton of places I'd like to go, but the first one that popped into my head was Tahiti. I would just love to stay in an overwater bungalow and enjoy the views of paradise.

If I could go anywhere, I would go to New Zealand. Embarrassingly enough, when I was watching the last season of "The Bachelor" they filmed the last part in New Zealand, and it was just gorgeous!

Italy - I want to go to Rome, visit all the museums.

St. Barts. I love a vacation where I can just relax and do nothing on a beautiful beach.

I would love to go back to Greece. I love all of Greece, and love the food as well. It is one of the most beautiful countries, and everyone should visit Patmos and the other islands. There is SO MUCH history in Greece, really something for everyone. If money were no object, I would rent a villa on one of the islands for at least 6 months, and use that as a travel base. What a wonderful dream.

I have this fantasy of living in Paris for a year. My boyfriend could have his dream job and I could go to culinary school; I think this qualifies as a vacation (particularly for me).

Jules Someone said...

Anywhere? I'd cruise all over the world.

Jacque said...

First off, your Paris trip sounds wonderful. I am so jealous!

Second, let's see... there are so many things I want to see... but I haven't been "home" in such a long time, I'd like to go there, Wyoming and Colorado. My kids have never seen it, and I'd like to take them.

Thanks for asking :)

If I could go anywhere, it would be Italy again - back to Florence, Tuscany, Venice....ahhhhhh. Just thinking about it makes my eyes glaze over......

Free to travel all over without time constraints. To view the beautiful mountains of New Zealand. Ayers Rock. The Great Barrier Reef. And so many other places. And take my children. Ah, wonderful.

Madam Chow said...

If money were no object, I'd like to take a year long tour of Europe, and spend all the time I wanted at interesting places I discovered along the way. No rushing, no budgeting!

If money was no option I would love to do a volunteer vacation to work with a cause that helps children somehow, maybe Africa or Indonesia...I've always wanted to do this, but the travel costs are so expensive! Thanks for the chance!!

I would go to England/Scotland/Wales for a year, moving every month or so to a new part of the country. This would be my dream trip.
