We know our readers love to travel and explore new places across the Pacific, something we haven't been able to do in the past few months. The good news is we will travel again someday soon!

Plane rides and suitcases may not be in our immediate plans, but dreaming up where we'll go next is allowed. This is a call to lovers of the open skies, crashing waves and roads less traveled. Those who see the world as their oyster and want to taste it all. Tell us your travel tales and the secrets of your best vacation.

Stars and Stripes wants to be your travel companion. Write about your own piece of paradise and we'll make you famous! Our annual Destination Paradise highlights the travels of your fellow community members and we want to include you in our 2020-2021 edition.

The way we travel is changing but the locations we've visited and enjoyed are still there waiting for our return.

It doesn’t have to be an exotic island with pristine beaches. Maybe your idea of paradise is a secluded hiking trail, a quiet park in a congested city, a colorful snorkeling spot, or the fashion district of your favorite destination. 

We want to hear about a place you cherish, a place you feel most compelled to share with others.

Your story will not only appear in the Stripes Destination Paradise magazine that will hit the streets on Pacific bases in September, but it will also appear in our community newspapers - Stripes Japan, Stripes Okinawa, Stripes Guam and Stripes Korea and websites - stripesjapan.com, stripesokinawa.com, guam.stripes.com and stripeskorea.com.

We may not be able to travel now, but let your thoughts take you on a journey and put pen to paper (or hands to keyboard) and start writing! Have fun with it, write long or short and don't forget to send your photos, too!

Submit your story and photos to paradise@stripes.com by July 19!
