My Unexpected Dream Vacation

By: Joanne Chantigny

In January 2013, my husband Danny and I vacationed in Maui for a week.

We had been planning our dream getaway for a few years.  An opportunity to relax by the pool and soak up some sun.

Well, our dream vacation didn’t turn out as we had planned.

Our week in Maui was more than we had hoped for.  More than we ever imagined or thought about.

The lay by the pool dream vacation was filled with fun daring adventures.

Swimming with dolphins in the open ocean water a mile off shore.

Kayaking about 20 feet from humpback whales.

Trying different foods that I wouldn’t normally dare to eat.

Driving on dirt roads that scared me.

I always thought my dream vacation would be to relax by the pool.


My dream vacation was to step out of my comfort zone.  To try a new adventure.

Experience a new place in the world.

Try new things that I never would have imagined I would do.

From now on, when I plan a dream vacation, I will be sure to include something that I can check off my bucket list.

I wonder where my next dream vacation will be.

What does your dream vacation look like?

With Love,

Joanne Chantigny

What an amazing memory! I am so excited to be going to Europe this summer. I never thought it would happen while I was in my 40s. I look forward to sharing it with you!
