    I have never been to Europe and would love to do so. It’s just so expensive and we’ve never been able to afford it. These spots sound amazing!

    while all of these places sound wonderful, and i have to admit that i am not familiar with any of them, i think Cypress sounds the best. i love any place that has turquoise waters!
