  25. Shuang

    awesome Tine!
    i live in Indonesia. having a baby means I need to postpone my holiday plan but I always have a soft spot for Maldives. Gotta start saving up now..

  26. Natasha

    I’m Natasha from the US. My next major holiday is to NYC for my sister-in-law’s wedding in October! It’s not really a holiday since we will spend the entire week-end with the family and then fly home without actually getting into the City. But the wedding should be fantastic since she found an excellent guy and I’m so happy for them.

    Most of my travel is piggybacked on hubby’s business trips — I’m passing on the one to Tucson in July, but I really hope I can go with him to Haifa, Israel in November — the landscape, the food, the people…. I’m ready to go!

  57. Karen C

    I’m from Australia and don’t have any holiday planned, but my dream destination would be Paris.

  58. Hilary

    1) Australia (but previously the UK, and a couple of other places that didn’t work out long term)
    2) Unfortunately nothing actually booked as of yet, but my (very long) list has the following at the top:
    a) The Kimberley – totally stole my heart during our travels around Australia. And its warm there at the moment (I live in Adelaide. Its NOT warm here at the moment πŸ™ )
    b)Japan – one of the reasons for moving this side of the world was so Japan was easier to get to. More chance of a flying unicorn making me breakfast tomorrow than me getting there to be honest, but I can dream πŸ˜›
    c) Bali – because its a cliche, so we have to go at some point. And its WARM there at the moment. See a theme?

    (Come to Australia they said. Its warm here they said. They lied :P)

    This is my third trip – it’s definitely one of the most incredible places I’ve been!

  62. Eunice

    I’m from where you are now, Melbourne!

    No vacation plans yet as I’m baking baby #2 so not in the best condition to travel. But will be looking forward to bringing baby back to Singapore when he/she arrives for a while.. πŸ™‚

  63. Sandy

    I am from Canada! Or family is camping about 2 hours from home for a few days next month πŸ™‚

  64. Lyne

    I’m from Malaysia πŸ™‚

    My next holiday plan is a trip to South India with mom. She’s enthusiastic about visiting it after a friend of hers can’t stop raving about the delicious food and massages. It’s a nice change from the usual r&r destinations like Bali or Phuket so I’m looking forward to it too.

  65. Michelle

    I’m from Malaysia and wish to hv a vacation in the United States

  66. Sharon Ngo

    I’m from the tropical country of Malaysia. Not very keen in going anywhere hotter than here since it’s summer now, so my dream vacation will be somewhere near the beach. Soak in the water, go swimming, snorkeling and that’s good enough. So I guess I’ll like to go Boracay or Maldives but best bet is Thai beaches or islands (more affordable compared to our budgets).

  67. Jasmine

    I’m from Australia
    I dream of going to Bora Bora

  68. Jocelyn


    I’m from Malaysia. Korea would be my next to-go country. Not this year, most probably next year.
