Before she left for Haiti, Amy Holmes knew her trip to the poor Caribbean nation would be unlike any she ever had taken. The tarantula in her bed on her first night in the southwestern seaport town of Cayes further convinced her she was right.

Holmes, one of 12 people from Second Cape May Baptist Church in Upper Township who traveled in March on a mission to Port-a-Piment, said she said a quick prayer that nothing worse would happen during the group’s week in Haiti and went to sleep.

Until he receives a double lung transplant, Connell Rodden won’t be able to travel much farther than the distance from his home in Ocean City’s south end to his doctors at Temple Hospital in Philadelphia. The two-hour time limit was set by his physicians, who five years ago diagnosed Rodden with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a lung disease for which transplantation is his only hope.

That’s quite a short leash for a man who has traveled to such diverse locations as Paris, Grand Cayman and Alaska, and, as of September, to Ireland with his wife of 32 years, Carol, and their three adult children and their children’s spouses.

MIDDLE TOWNSHIP – Gary Schempp’s travels have taken him to 70 different countries and 47 of America’s states.

OCEAN CITY – Jack and Bonnie Sweeder belatedly celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary with a two-week trip in February to New Zealand and Australia. The seasoned world travelers agree the journey deserves a spot on their Top 10 list, but the experience didn’t come close to unseating their No. 1 destination, Hawaii, where they traveled 15 years ago for their 25th anniversary.

Although they agree on a solid Top 5, the Sweeders vary on the ranking of the second Top 5. In order, the couple say their favorite trips have been to: 2. Barcelona, Spain. 3. Ireland and Scotland, 4. Croatia and 5. Alaska. In the second Top 5, in no particular order, they place Rome, Paris, Costa Rica, Australia/New Zealand and Vancouver, British Columbia.
