Travel Tuesday - Late Edition

Once again, Travel Tuesday comes in under the wire. I was going to talk about Covent Garden because one of my girls suggested it, but that'll have to wait.

Instead, I was dreaming, as usual, about travel. I was thinking about where on each of the continents, I'd like to visit at some point in my life.

So I thought I'd share that list with you.

There are still so many unexplored regions of North America that I'd like to see. I've never been to the Northwestern United States (too cloudy for my tastes). I've never been to much of Mexico (Tijuana and Nogales just didn't do much for me).

I think the place I'd most like to see in North America that I haven't already seen is Montreal. Known as the second largest French-speaking city outside of Paris, it just sounds romantic.

I've been to Brazil, but didn't get to see much of the country, so I'd love to see more of the Brazilian countryside, especially the Amazon region. But I'd also like to venture to Argentina for the beef. Oh, and also for that wonderful little Malbec wine they make. (What can I say? I'm a foodie at heart.)

Oh my, there are too many wonderful places in Europe to even begin to choose. I would love to explore more of Switzerland (and besides, B owes me some fondue). I'd love to see Germany. And Prague. But if I had to narrow it down, I'd say two places in Europe I'd love to see are Provence and Tuscany. I think I could fall in love with both of those areas if given the chance.

Kenya, of course. I've been dreaming of going on Safari for as long as I can remember. For now, I'll just have to look at my friend's pictures--she got to go last summer.

Now it's getting a little tougher because, honestly, I don't have a strong desire to go to Asia. I guess Japan would be where I'd head first.

Another toughie for me. Australia seems hot, dry, and dusty. But I suppose if my arm is twisted I could manage to go there.

Now, I know that this is not technically on the Australian continent, and having done a little research I found that this place is actually a "continent" of its own. One place in the Australian region I'd like to go is New Zeland. It seems like such a lush, green, and beautiful country. The people seem warm and friendly. And we have friends who live there, so who knows? Maybe someday we'll get there.

Since I have rather strong feelings about winter, all I can say about Antarctica is . . . no way, no how, not EVER.

So now I'd like to know . . . where would YOU like to go?


  1. Well, I must confess that (as you would know from my "25 Random Things") I'm not a big fan of travel, especially overseas. However, Lord knows I will, so if I had my preference, here's where... In the U.S., I want to see the Northwest (Seattle, Oregon) and all along the east coast (again), mostly New England and DC. I'm in a history fascination phase that seemed to have slipped past me in school and want to eat up historic places. Overseas, I'd do Tuscany again in a heartbeat, and I'd like to see other parts of Italy, as well. I'd also love to see the Holy Lands. I could go on with other ideas, but then this would turn out to be a blog entry which I don't think was your intention. :)

    Thanks for sharing where you want to go! So fun to know!

  2. This is really dumb, but it just hit me that all but one of the continents start with "A" (more or less.). I mean, I know my continents, but the light bulb just went off. It's a very dim lightbulb. In fact, I think I'll be "Anonymous" for this one. :)-

  3. O.K., Anonymous, fess up! You are making me laugh.

    And, Jodi, you make me laugh too. I noticed from your 25 things that you don't like to travel (kind of like our sister). I can't even imagine . . . :)

    Thanks for the comments! Keep 'em coming!

  4. I totally love to travel and have been to some of these places. I've seen much of Europe but need MORE! Montreal is nice but I like Vancouver better. I could go on and on.

    Thanks for stopping by!! It's been too long since I visited here.

  5. All of the above, and then some! And I encourage you to try the Pacific Northwest in the summer. We've been there at least 12 times and only had rain once!

    Austria, where I would stand atop the green hills singing "Climb Every Mountain", while I twirl--not in my drab brown/gray (or is it black/white?) dress--but in comfy jeans and a cozy sweater.

    Hiking in the Swiss Alps and the Himalayas.

    Oh, yes. I agree with Jodi. Better stop here because it's turning into a blog entry.

    Thanks for sharing!
