Anyone up for a virtual vacation?

A few Christmases ago, Jon and I drove to Chicago on a whim. We took our winter coats, but not much else- and when we got there, the heater in our truck broke. It was cold. I remember seeing a temperature sign on a bank that read -2 degrees, and I thought "This is the coldest temperature I've ever experienced in my life!" And it was- until today. With the windchill, we'll be sitting at -20 tonight, and I can almost guarantee that our heater won't get a break tonight. Being outside for 5 seconds makes your hands feel like you slammed them in a car door- so I'm camping inside unless I absolutely have to get out.
I'm willing to bet that most everyone reading this is experiencing cold or downright frigid temperatures right now (except for those in Hawaii who may be basking in the warm sun. jerks. =) Being that it's January, and summer is light years away, I am in desperate need of a tropical vacation. Here's where I would go:

Oh, Hawaii, how I miss thee.
I'd drink a few of these:

I'd lay under a palm tree and pretend we're not in a deep freeze.

So where are you going?

Those places look so nice.

My husband and I are ACTUALLY going to San Diego tomorrow for a long weekend/anniversary trip! It won't be tropical by any means, but it will definitely be warmer than here!

scWe are leaving Sunday for a cruise to the Bahamas! Can't wait to get away from this cold weather.

I'm sorry, but I'm laughing at your depiction of -20*. It's just what we do I guess. It's not like we're sitting up here enjoying our cold weather, but dang it, at least we get to make others feel like wimps. :P

I wouldn't care where I was!

Aww I'm so wishing I was there right now! It warmed me up for a few seconds! It's about -10 here right now, so nothing virtual could warm me up for very long! :-) Thanks for sharing!

Let's just swap houses--it's been really unseasonably warm here this year (it was like 60 today) and I am seriously upset that we haven't had any snow!

I love your vacation spot!
