I found THIS very simple and easy to follow tutorial over on the Minnesota Mom blog.

WHERE I WANT TO BE: Lake House, Daylesford, Victoria, Australia

A waterfront retreat in southern Australia's spa country, this boutique hotel promises blissful relaxation and gourmet dining.
Mineral springs are plentiful around Lake House's hometown - and at the Salus Day Spa of this bucolic getaway, you're enjoying their restorative waters in a tree-house tub. On the shores of picturesque Lake Daylesford, its 33 rooms and suites tucked into six acres of gardens, the hotel is built to give you space and seclusion.

That's especially true of the Waterfront Suites, which guests enter via a bridge spanning a fern gully. These generous lodgings have balconies overlooking the lake and lagoon, and their amenities include a bar, dual showers, and dual spa baths. Like the hotel's other rooms and suites, they're close to walking trails that lead around the lake and into nearby Wombat State Forest.

WHERE I WANT TO BE: The Nam Hai, Vietnam


Impeccable service and palatial accommodations beckon you to Nam Hai, an indulgent Vietnamese resort on the white sands bordering the South China Sea.
From the moment you are greeted with cool towels and beaming smiles at the grand entrance of the Nam Hai, you're in for a treat. Striking modern Vietnamese architecture invites you inside, where split levels and wooden platforms are complemented by tranquil earth tones. Four pools - reflecting pool, upper pool, lap pool, and main pool - lead the way down stone steps to the white sand shores of China Beach.

At the Nam Hai, each gorgeous villa occupies its own section of landscaped gardens, with incredible views of the South China Sea and Cham Islands. Though your room may offer every luxury, including lavish bathrooms with rain showers, flat screen TVs, and espresso machines, you'll want to venture outside to enjoy the resort's many amenities. Dine at one of two gourmet restaurants: The Restaurant for divine Vietnamese, or The Beach Restaurant for seafood. Enjoy a botanical body polish at the spa. And get out your nine iron for championship golf at Montgomerie Links.
