  4. Craig Haynes says:

    $100.000 for Italy & Croatia for 2 weeks,sounds ok but if I had MY choice with that 100 grand I would like to fly to as many National Parks I pick. 5 star treatment with fishing guides,hiking, fly a helicopter into yellowstone where nobody has ever walked & camp there with a chef cooking elk steaks. After we view the beautiful night stars with a great telescope im waking up to eggs and moose sausage. we take the helicopter to the airport near Jackson Hole wyoming & fly my lear jet to alaska's beautiful mountains. We jump on 4 wheelers to a wonderful resort. YES I could plan this out for 2 weeks perfectly since I was a mountain rescue Park Ranger for 5 years in the Grand Teton National Park

    We have always wanted to go to Venice and watching the program of touring the coast of Italy and Croatia by private yacht and sailboat and touring car sounds unbelievable. Angela, my wife, has said for the last 10 years…she has to see Venice…before it sinks into the sea. I have discovered . . I love beautiful women…beautiful art… Beautiful architecture, fine dining, and beautiful music. It looks like this trip has so much more. Traveling and moving from one great hotel, with dining rooms overlooking the sea to another great hotel with unreal fine art. By private jet or copter or yacht has awakened many dreams for us. We can be packed tomorrow! Samantha Brown has brought us great travels over the years.

    Congrats Samantha! You kept me sane through a one year deployment in Iraq and another year in Afghanistan! My poor husband and little girls had to suffer without me, while protected our nation from terrorism. As we took rocket fire on our base in Kandahar, my happy thought was to make it through so that I can show my girls the world. You were my inspiration! Thank you for all the needed happy thoughts

    I can be packed and ready very quickly. I am still trying to figure out how to enter. Oh my, I hope I don't miss the opportunity. This will be a very pleasant surprise to win such an extensive trip. I haven't been able to get out of Danville, PA for over 15 years. I always wanted to travel somewhere, just once in my lifetime and winning a trip will be the "only" way it will happen for me and I have accepted that, so I continually find sweepstakes to win a trip and enter her often in hopes of one day being pleasantly surprised. I have a good feeling that it will occur and soon. I hope its this one or one to Alaska. I love to fish so where I win a trip to, I hope that I will have the opporutnity to do some fishing elsewhere or beside the Danville, PA Susquehanna River. Take care all and to all who entered, best of luck to each and everyone of you. I know this would be a trip anyone will surely enjoy and Good luck to you. Louise

  61. Shanne Glover says:

    A Personal, Thank You, Travel Channel~
    for this adventure and experience to remember for a lifetime.
    What a Dream come true ! Starting off in Venice to relax & enjoy the beauty of the culture, the rich history and life of the Venetians. This is inviting for the spirit to soar with imagination and to relax in the picturesque visuals from the towns to sea, as it laps upon the shoreline. Graciously diving, into the culinary delights that sets the various communities apart. This too, is joyful to the palate inviting to the soul. Oohhh to take the Air Balloon Ride for the birds eye view over the breath-taking historical town-ships roofs with the hint of desire to lightly touch, a roof top is for a first time a joyous adventure and journey… To be given this joy of a life time; daily envelopes my heart to experience this whole heartedly. Again, A Personal, Thank You, Travel Channel for this adventure and experience to remember for a lifetime.

    In viewing for the first time, the photos inside of Hotel Danieli ~ The words of eloquence, luxury, posh truly give insight to describe the magnificent Hotel Danieli. Yes, Oh, I agree ! ~ Viewing the lobby toward the stair case that romantically wraps upward cloaked by the gorgeous deep red carpet. A place, where romance blossoms into a depth of love, one can only imagine. In viewing the photos, In my heart, I wept for the beauty in the architecture and ambiance throughout Hotel Danieli, which is done so eloquently. Only to prove Love designed this magnificent Hotel Danieli.
    To walk through the doors after arriving…The thought takes my breath away….. The experience will be one, of its own. Enveloping my memory for the rest of my life.~

    The relaxing enjoyment of taking a calm ride in a gondola traveling smoothly through the various water ways, viewing the buildings,homes and the people. Enjoying various wines, cheese and breads on the side while taking in the history,culture & architecture…
    This brings a warm relaxing peace to my heart for the joy of this expierence.

  67. Le Ann says:

    Our 20- year anniversary was 12/12/12…less than desirable day or week for us… not even time for dinner out. Our week was filled with flu, bronchitis, family diagnosed with Cancer, fender bender, 3 kids with hectic schedules, a job that demands 24:7 for my husband, that horrible massacre in CT., and Christmas shopping to finish and a speeding ticket to boot .This TRIP is obviously the TRIP OF A LIFETIME that we would never be able to afford….Gotta win!…Gotta get away from the madness! Happy BELATED Anniversary dear!!

  72. Shanne Glover says:

    A short walk on cobble stone from Hotel Danieli is Doge's Palace an achitectual rembrant to repectfully wrap ones eyes and arms around for the history, the art and the culture. Again, this joy of the education & experience will be pricless.

  73. Shanne Glover says:

    Italian food is a gift with-in itself… A treat from A to Z ~ Wine, cheese's & meats that are blessed by the work of a families lifetime and love of the art. Pasta blends that tease ones palate and imagination which take one on a personal journey of their life time…. I've always said: " Food is Fun"…To feast my eyes & gently place on my fork the selected dish of Risoto & Black Truffle ~ The multiple choices of seafood will be a delight to my heart ~ The personal joy of evolving my tastebuds in the marriage of wines, cheeses, meats & breads will be as a waltz I've yet to know the music, as my thoughts are overwhelmed by the inner joy for what I will beable to experience as I am in awe over My " Trip of a Life Time" I stand and am graciously Thankful for this future journey ~ Mrs. Shanne Glover

  74. Shanne Glover says:

    I'd considered what I might buy while visiting Italy, the Adriactic… I would enjoy visiting & having Murano glass make a pair of wine glasses to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. With those comes a special wine that we'd both find delight in. In Venice visiting the makers of the exquisite masks from the Carnival de Sol. That I may frame the mask, placing the now art on my home wall to reflect daily on this wonderful adventure. Then, enjoy the many culinary delights throughout the Country. OOh, to wrap my tastebuds around caviar from this region of the world ~ Shhhhh, heart be still..~

  75. John says:

  76. Jim & Evelyn Schupp says:

    We would love to travel the old world for the first time.

  77. No1PuddleJumper says:

    I've learned a few more enjoyable adventures. Little beauties off the beaten track that makes Venice even more inquisitive.
    Sam, on Travel Channel; Shares what the locals enjoy certain times during the day. They gather at a Bacari. The variety of foods that lifts one to carry on before lunch or dinner. The Bacari offers food items called CICCHETTI as she calls them little snacks, before lunch or dinner. a refreshing beverage called a Balini Ohh, how delectable & the Open Market a place where the locals sell thier fruits, vegetables & meats this is so inviting, setting the mood as music is played in the background.
    What a joyful experience ~ this will be on the "Trip of a Life Time" ~
    S. Glover

  78. No1PuddleJumper says:

    What Would I Eat on My Trip of a Life Time ~ ?

    Learning of the joys in culinary delights from Venice to Croatia. How could they ever be listed there are so many wonderful delights.

    The freshest seafood that comes from the Adriatic Sea.The ocean has opened her arms to graciously give her bounty. The plan is to enjoy as much as possible. Truly brings a smile upon my face. I can hardly wait to feast upon this gift ~ As I've too learned of all the fantastic pastas & breads. Gnocci is a personal joy, bringing many wonderful family memories. The romantic blend of Garlic & Olive Oil so aromatic & when warmed brings any food from the sea or pasta made by loving hands as this parfumed beauty is lightly drizzled over all that ones heart desires to enjoy for that moment. My heart will leep for joy again, as the meal is accompanied with a glass of sparkling white wine from the Prosecco Region to complement the feast wheather for lunch or dinner. There in, is that special gift for us all to embrace and remember for ones Life Time.

    Yes, Seafood, Pastas, Risotto's, Coffee, Wine & Dessert will be a delight to the sences. Heart be still.
    S. Glover

    This would be away from the standard traffic of being a tourist. This is where I understand so many gems are found and why so many fall in love with Italy. Looking forward to this wonderful adventure through and through.

    • Vicki Asmar says:

      Your explaination of what the locals do and the open market sounds fun. I've yet to go to Italy of which is on my dream list. & to have these ideas shared really help.

  85. No1PuddleJumper says:

    To stay in the 5-Star Hotel Danieli is such an honor. To take in the beautiful history that is read about in books & seen in postcards. Taking my imagination and making it a reality, simply fills my heart with utmost joy. Just a few steps away is more history that to touch the columns of, the world would be silent ~ for my moment in my experience & adventure of this Trip of My Lifetime 2013 from Travel Channel. In St. Marks Square. Enjoying a meal out, at Harry's bar.Sipping on a Balini & Nibbling on Beef Carpacchio.~ ~Yippeee… Only to start this adventure for sure. What a super treat and gift of a Lifetime ! WOW !

    aka S. Glover

  86. No1PuddleJumper says:

    I am, loving the joy of writing about the discoveries in this Once In A Life Time Adventure & Experience. I have not been given the opportunity to enjoy Italy, Venice, Adriadic Sea, nor Croatia. As I write what I feel upon learning about these wonderful places through Travel Channel. I get so excited. I actually catch myself with a big smile in my heart and on my face. Giggling while dreaming upon landing in Italy. Transferring over to Hotel Danieli as I feel the breeze run across my face. Smelling the Ocean, Hearing the People hustle and bustle here and there,,, The Open Market Shop where music is played as the tune picks up the spirit of the people who work and live near by, to buy fresh produce, cheezes, breads & meats ~ Oh My !!! Simply the Utmost !!!! Taking a relaxing drive to and through the Vineyards up Prosecco Rd. to find as Adam joyously states: " The Legendary Sparkling White Wine"…I can feel the sparkles from the wine lightly touch my nose, as I take in the fragrance or bouquet of the wine, before I gracefully take a sip ~ my mouth is eager to taste this beautiful wine. To learn of the Culture and the Peoples,and the foods of Venice alone, is so amazing. To Tour in the Water Taxi around Venice there are no words to find; Except, to be in awe. As one nibbles from the basket the fruits, breads, dried meats, of course the delightful wines… Simply to slow down & take in every moment of this Gift of a Life Time from Travel Channel ~ A Warm Gracious Thank You, for this Wonderful Opportunity Travel Channel.

    This would be an absolute dream come true! Between mortgage, college etc I would never be able to afford something this magnificent….. After enduring the brunt of Hurrican Sandy, this would be something awesome to look forward to.
