Antasha surprised me and took me to Buenos Aires, Argentina last month!  She is a flight attendant and we fly for FREE!  What was so awesome was that she selected a destination where the American dollar is very strong!  That way…. we paid less for hotels, restaurants, gifts, etc. than we normally would.  Please check out these links on places that you can go!
