The dream spring break vacation of an area travel agent probably includes a land free of spring break travelers trying to arrange their dream spring break.
Fantasy vacations may differ in locale, but our writer on Locust Walk noted a few similarities. Warm weather is a common one, as are foreign lands and, well, foreign bodies.
- Meg Thompson, Wharton, Class of '00
"Ideally for spring break I'd like to be stranded on a desert island with nothing except that cute actor David Borneaz and a bottle of tanning oil."
- Elizabeth Trocki, College, Class of '02
"Paris. I'd like to go to 'Paris in the Springtime' because it's the quintessential vacation."
- Brenda Vaughn, College, Class of '01
"I think it would be really fun to go to one of those MTV beach houses. I might get to meet a few celebrities."
- Spyridon Stavrou, College, Class of '01
"The Cote d'Azur. All the glamorous people and jet setters are there. French food and champagne - and the women."
- Jim Springstead, Engineering, Class of '01
"To tell you the truth Brighton, Michigan. To me, going home would actually be the best thing."
- Cliff DiCerbo, College, Class of '01
"Cancun, Mexico. It's warm, far and filled with places where I can get drinks. All I need is beer and a couple of se–oritas."
- David Ha, Engineering, Class of '02
"I'd go to flight school, I guess. My parents are always calling me a space cadet."
- Melissa Desvarieux, Wharton, Class of '00
"Venice, Italy. I'd go there for break because I think it's the city of loveÉit's really romantic. And everyone gets action there."
- Laura Kaplan, Engineering, Class of '99
"Sydney, Australia. I would love to go someplace different. And if I met a guy with one of those sexy accents I wouldn't mind either."
- Chrissy Croft, Engineering, Class of '00
"French Riviera. I'd like to re-meet the cute French windsurfer I met in Spain two years ago."
- George Corbin, Wharton, Class of '01
"My girlfriend lives in Florida - the capital of spring breakers - so we're going back there. The only that could be better would be for us to win one of those week-long cruises."
- Eric Chen, Wharton, Class of '99
"I'd go to Hawaii for spring break. I'd like to go to the Big Island to see the black beaches."
