Top 10 Unique Travel Destinations of the World

I have been blessed to have traveled and experienced some very unique destinations all over the world as well as right in my own backyard. Here are a few of my favorites. Maybe they will soon be yours as well. 1. Sri Lanka: Whether you recognize it as Sri Lanka, Ceylon or its ancient Arab name of Serendib (serendipity), this tiny island nation casts a primitive and mysterious spell on its visitors.

Connie’s Corner blog today is by guest author, Dee Durham (my Mom).  I asked her to share her thoughts on vacationing with three generations such as our trip to Europe in 2008.   The downpour that we experienced last weekend here in Phoenix, Arizona was unbelievable, even for us Oregonians. At one time, I was sure that it was not even possible to get from one side of the street to the other without swimming. I tried to think of when I had been in rain like that before. What came to my mind was when we were in Luxembourg (2008) on our Legacy Trip. Connie has written about that trip, but she didn’t say that it was raining so hard we could not see out the windows enough to spot a parking place, even if had there been one. Too much rain. We all voted to...
