    ReplyDelete

  4. Pretty, pretty goodies you are offering up. I've been to both Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi) and China (Nanchang and Guangzhou) and we are looking forward to the days when we can take the kidlets back to see their birth countries.

  5. thank you for this chance...I've only visited Cuba, but want to see Hawaii. And am a follower

  6. I really haven't been anyplace exotic. Unless you consider it exotic that I move every few years and have been in cali, wa, and pa. I have been to las vegas and west virginia. Mostly we travel to visit family. My vacation budget is totally nonexistent right now.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I've been a happy follower for quite awhile....love the Ghastlies too! I've been to Aruba and some of the Caribbean Islands.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I follow your blog via bloglovin. I've never been to any exotic places. My bucket list is to go to Egypt some day.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The most exotic place I ever visited was Miami. Unfortunately, no international travel for me, but Miami sure was nice after living in Detroit my whole life. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think the most exotic place I have visited was a small beach in the Philippines - no cars are allowed there, so the air is very clean and you have to get there on a little pontoon boat. I follow you on bloglovin.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thanks for the sweet giveaway! I'm so boring...Hawaii is the closest to exotic I have ever been.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Does Acapulco count? Been to Hawaii also. Thanks for the great giveaway! Just added to my Ghastlies Stash...love them. akronne17@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm not much of a traveler. I've done the cruise thing and I've been to Hawaii, but I doubt that's what you mean by exotic. Love your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I LOVE that picture of the colorful beach houses. Morocco is the most exotic place we have visited.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thank you for the giveaway. I don't get to travel much so I have never been to any exotic places. I love going to the mountains though. I am a follower via Bloglovin.

  16. Well I would have to say Mexico. there are some exotic places there lol

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would love to go to Egypt! I haven't been anywhere exotic!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I've been to the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and England. The Bahamas was on a cruise, and the locals kept wanting to braid my hair (for a fee), and I was not into it. After the third day, I was basically yelling at them to stop bugging me! Puerto Rico was beautiful, but very sunny. I could not step out of the hotel without getting sunburnt no matter how much sunscreen or what SPF I had put on. England was, in contrast, cold - even in early May. However, I saw wonderful things! I recommend Tintagel (in Cornwall), Glastonbury, Avesbury, and Bath. I suggest skipping the Tower of London, and splurging for tea at Harrod's. Don't miss the British Museum - especially look at the Rosetta Stone - and just enjoy the old-world feel of the city that you can't find in the States. However jet-setting this seems, I want to visit as many National Parks as I can. So far my favorite is the Grand Tetons in Wyoming, followed by Big Bend here in Texas, but I'd like to visit Yosemite in Califonia and Volcanoes in Hawaii.

    ReplyDelete
  19. We visited the redwoods of northern Calif. Huge! Loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I spent a summer in Hong Kong...a far, far cry from life in a small western town.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I walked through a bit of Red Rock Park many years ago. Does that count as exotic? Otherwise, I've never been anywhere exotic.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have not been to any real exotic places....but I have many on my bucket list.....hopefully I will get to them....

    ReplyDelete
  87. I've been on several mission trips to South America. The most exotic was when we worked in the Amazon in Guyanna. We had to be flown in in a small 5 person plane, otherwise we would have had to take a canoe.

    ReplyDelete
  88. The most exotic place I've visited is Indonesia -- mainly Java and Bali. It was difficult to do much because we found ourselves right in the middle of riots and shootings when Suharto was forced from office. So we spent days locked up at my sister-in-laws and later in a hotel in Bali after we got out of Jakarta. I always wanted to make a t-shirt that said "I visited Indonesia and all I got was a revolution."

    ReplyDelete
  89. Well, I'm from the midwestern United States and have only done some road tripping around - so not sure that anywhere I've been actually qualifies as "exotic".

  101. I think it depends on what you consider exotic, the Greek islands are exotic to some, but as I've been there 12 times, they don't seem it to me. Apart from that, maybe Tunisia.

  109. I have never left Australia but that could be because it is a pretty amazing place and I haven't even seen half of it yet. I have been to the highest part (Mount Kosciusko) & I have seen the 12 Apostles (of which there aren't 12 any more). I have seen some truely amazing things & I am sure there is no where else on earth I would rather live - my family and my home are here. I would love to travel abroad and see the delights though.
