It’s a “Know Your Quids” Wednesday post. Today let’s look at our dream vacations.
My dream vacation involves a lot of the outdoors and very few people. Camped along the shore of one of our Great Lakes with my husband and my dog, I’m one happy Quid. Add some campfires, some long walks along trails more traveled by wildlife than humans, and my favorite chair with a good book, and it’s a perfect vacation.

I love all my sweet friends dreaming of long walks on the beach and secluded parks, but folks, that’s just not me. I’ve been to coastal Maine–it’s gorgeous. Almost as pretty as New Hampshire, my home state. For me, no trip to New England is complete without spending some time in Boston. But that’s not my dream vacation–I lived in the Boston area for years. No, for me, traveling from city to city all over Europe sounds like the perfect vacation. Paris, London, Prague, Athens, Madrid, Barcelona, Munich, Zurich, Vienna, Venice, Rome, Florence…the list goes on and on. There’s nothing I prefer more than sitting at a sidewalk cafe and watching the city walk by. Whether I’m dressed in a tank top and shorts or bundled in boots and a parka, I love being in the city.
I would love to take a trip to Maine. God’s beauty, creativity and sovereignty on majestic display for all to see.

‘Dream vacation’ means somewhere I’ve already been, right? I love weekend trips to Georgia State Parks. Either that, or strolling through historic St. Augustine. If we’re talking somewhere I haven’t been, it has to be Spain. Once I see Spain, we may need to discuss this again.
My dream vacation is anywhere where I can experience nature and get closer with God. I love to hike, horseback ride, drive along the coast, and travel by boat. I’ve been most places out west, all through the south, experienced a lot of the Midwest, visited Toronto, Canada, and a few places on the east coast. I’ve been white water rafting, and I’ve hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. But my absolute favorite vacation so far is coastal Maine. The fresh seafood, quaint towns, and the stunning atmosphere will always hold a special place in my heart.
