There's not much we don't know about lotteries - like when someone hits the big one, they're most likely to splash out and buy a new house, a new car and an overseas holiday, in that order. Yes, people are predictable, but that doesn't mean we don't love reading their winning stories anyway. It still gives us hope for when we hit our own lovely large jackpot (any day now, fingers crossed!).
The jury's still out on the house and car we'd be buying (big and expensive, natch), but one thing we know for sure is where we'd be going on holiday - and that's Hawaii. We want sun, sand and surf, and as many Mai-Tais as we can drink, all hand-delivered to us on a silver platter. Can you say Aloha?
Of course, we still love reading about other lavish holiday destinations - because, who knows, if they're exotic enough, they might sway our thinking away from the shores of Oahu and Kauai, and towards their opulent climes instead.
One place that might be able to change our minds is the St. Regis Monarch Beach, one of Southern California's top resort destinations, and newly remodelled to the tune of $30 million. Already a top choice amongst the who's who of US holidaymakers thanks to its breathtaking Pacific Ocean location, the refurbished St. Regis Monarch Beach now features lavishly decorated rooms with en suite marble bathrooms, state-of-the-art in-room technology, and seven world-class restaurants, with enough choice to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. Where do we sign up?
Then there's the magnificent Dromoland Castle in Newmarket-on-Fergus, Ireland, another recently renovated location guaranteed to make you feel like a king or queen. Think 28 opulently designed guest rooms, panoramic views, a huge expanse of immaculately landscaped garden, and activities like falconry, fishing and horse riding to keep you royally entertained all vacation long. Add in a spa, a championship golf course and a five-star restaurant, and you'll start feeling like you never want to leave!
Antigua's not somewhere we'd automatically think of when considering overseas holidays, but having read about its new and improved Carlisle Bay resort overlooking the Caribbean Sea, we're quickly changing our minds. Who wouldn't, when faced with luxury like one of six 780-square-foot suites, private butlers, an ocean-view restaurant, and your own private balcony or terrace leading onto the beach? And let's not forget guest activities like snorkelling, yoga, Pilates, windsurfing, sailing and more. It's Caribbean opulence at its best, and we'd be lying if we said we didn't want a taste!
Well Hawaii, looks like you've got some competition when it comes to the extravagant vacation stakes - but don't worry, when we win the lottery every single exotic holiday destination in the world is getting its turn. So many places, so little time - and once we hit the jackpot, so much money to see each and every one of them!
