In this hammock in Seychelles

Frolicking through this field of tulips in the Netherlands


Gerrolyn Anderson – “I would love to visit the Netherlands. I am an avid gardener, and I would love to see the tulip fields in bloom with the windmills turning in the distance.

A little shopping and a bike ride through the countryside would make this completely awesome for me! I would feel like I had died and gone to heaven!”

On this Australian stairway to heaven


Dave Jaworski – “The day Susan and I met I asked her what the one place was that she had not been to and wanted to go to… Her answer and mine were identical — Australia! We both put it in our Lifebook. We just celebrated our 33rd Anniversary. We WILL do this by the 35th at the latest.”
