My dream vacation is to travel to Topal, Mexico on a ruins sightseeing trip. I would bring along my twin nieces as a Graduation gift. During the day we would explore the many ruins, have a dip in the pool, and dine on fine cuisine. We would also travel to Merida, as I would like to purchase an authentic hand- made Panama hat. Also, we would definitely hit the clubs, and of course the beach, sipping on cocktails soaking up the sun. Did I mention shopping till we drop?

Awesome. I already have the book to read, now I just have to figure out what the winning postcard will be 😉
