Thursday Thoughts: Vacation on the Brain

A friend recently started a travel blog, Ready for Adventures.  Another friend is currently exploring the southern United States and reporting on her blog, Quilts, Cats, and Automobiles.  A few nights ago, John asked, "If you could go anywhere outside of the United States, but not visit any man made site, where would you go?"  (New Zealand, the Great Barrier Reef, and Tahiti immediately came to mind, along with seeing the aurora borealis and the fjords of Norway.)

Apparently everyone around me has vacation on the brain.  So, let's dream a bit.  Suppose you had unlimited resources and no responsibilities, where would you like to travel, and what would you do?  (I won't even restrict you to natural sites.)  Would you visit the pyramids or hike Kilimanjaro?  Take in a Broadway show or relax with a book on the beach?  All of the above?  Chime in!
Thanks for the wonders of the world.

  1. Wow, so many places...a few of my favorites...Great Wall of China, Easter Island, Pyramids of Egypt, Kathmandu, India markets, the penguins of the Antarctica, The Nile, Mount Kilimanjaro, Spain, Italy, Kalahari desert, Ireland and the Blarney stone, Scotland's Stonehenge, Sherlock Holmes' street in England, the Swiss Alps....so many more....but also to revisit some areas I already have....The Netherlands, Belgium, France, the Caribbean, Germany, all of Canada and the U.S.

    The way the world is now though, I am happy to be an armchair traveler. :)

  2. I would love to see Norway, Sweden and Finland. There are some river cruises that would be fun and relaxing.
