Where is heaven?

If you had only a week to live and could go anywhere in the world with unlimited funds, where would you go to spend out the last days of your life here on earth, who would you take, and what would you do?

As much as I love to travel, the answer to your question is:

I'd stay at home, surrounded by my friends and family.

I'd go skydiving, I'd go rocky mountain climbing . . .

Just kidding. I'm w/you Patrick, I'd stay home so I could be around everyone and everything that is dear to me.

If I KNEW I only had 1 week to live, I would be at home, also with family and friends. I would give my things to the people that I want and and taking care of them by trying to make sure their lives are made better because of mine. I would set up trust funds for my neice and nephew, and make sure my husband was taken care of...I would hire a housekeeper for him and set him up on a few dates (after I'm gone) Hey I'll be dead and he needs someone to love him and take care of him.


If I didn't know I was going to die, I would like it on the way home from a vacation not before. It doesn't matter where we go we always have a blast.

Some of us believe that heaven is hopefully where you go after you die, not before.

Come on guys, BigDan has given you unlimited funds to travel.

I would go to Kauai and take any and everyone who wanted to go with me. They would not know that I only had a week, but would think I was being very generous with my lottery winnings!

I'd fly family & friends out to a ranch near the Grand Tetons and spend the week riding horses, playing games, cooking out, exploring, painting, photgraphing, etc.

Heaven is somewhere in the lower forty eitht and probably in the State of Mind.

Hey, I'd do my best to spend the unlimited funds, I'd just do it in my hometown. Now if you give me the money without the impending death, I'll give you a different answer!!

Perhaps a better question would be "If you could take only one more vacation for the rest of your life, to anywhere in the world with unlimited funds, where would it be and who would you take?"

One week, with family and Pup in Italy in the early summer.
or One week with family and Pup in outer space where time has no meaning so I would last forever as would my family and Pup.

I think a better question would be "If you had all the time in the world, why would you spend it posting silly questions about heaven?"

I'd spend the time and money visiting family, most of whom live away from me. I'd spend money making sure their futures will be comfortable.
I'd visit Pakistan (family there, too) and make sure they had all their monetary needs taken care of, and then I'd get the ball rolling on an organization that addresses the needs of women and children there. That should keep me more than busy until final checkout time!

Unlimited funds? So far I'd have to say charter a big plane for hubby, friends and animals, hire the best chef I could get and a wonderful chamber orchestra, fly to some wonderful, luxurious place in the Swiss Alps, and have a party to beat all parties for the week. What a way to go.

Have a drink for/with me when you stop in.

(note: this applies only to the upper floors - Hell is located in the basement level)

Famous question: "Is this heaven?"

Answer: "It's Iowa."

(Please note: The incorrect version, "No, it's Iowa," is legion.)

I would rent a huge house on Kailua or Lanikai Beach on Oahu and fly everyone I love over there and have one "hell" of a terrific time doing everything we could in that week.

In the last week of my life the absolute LAST thing I'd want to do is pack a suitcase, haul my *ss to the airport, get on a plane, and go traveling.

Now give me a year to live and I would have a very different answer.
