Thirteen Places I Want to Go



(Is this terrible? I'm re-posting a TT from the archives. This was originally posted in June of 2006).

Some of these places I HAVE been to, and I just want to go back. Other places I've yet to see. Here we go:

1) Ireland --it's been my dream since childhood.

2) Scotland--it's been my dream since Braveheart.

3) England--while I'm at it, why not a tour of the United Kingdom? I would love to visit London.

4) Vermont--Friends tell me it's gorgeous, especially in the fall

5) Steamboat Springs, Colorado--I was there once, on my way somewhere else, and I immediately fell in love with it. It was so beautiful, and I LOVE the Colorado Rockies.

6) Savannah, Georgia--My parents went there for a convention once, and my mom has never forgotten how beautiful it was, especially the old houses.

7) The Maine Coast--Have heard, and read, that this is gorgeous.

8) Boise, Idaho--My daughter-in-law's hometown. I was there in the winter, for the wedding, but I would love to see it in the summer.

9) San Diego, California--Specifically, the Del Coronado Hotel in Coronado. Been there once, will never forget it, would love to go again.

10) Paris, France--I know, people tell me it's dirty and the residents have bad hygiene and bad manners, but I'd love to go anyway!

11) Provence, France--Everything I've read about it makes it sound idyllic and lovely.

12) Greece, the Greek Isles--I'm one quarter Greek, and would love to see the place where some of my heritage is rooted. I've also heard and read that the islands are beautiful.

13) Branson, Missouri--Had my honeymoon here, have been back a couple of times. I just love the spirit of this little resort town!

Great list. I kept seeing lots and lots of vacations to Branson in our travel club, and I didn't know what the draw could be.

Savannah is a great place to visit. I would like to visit New England and the coast of Maine (among many other places)

Thanks for stopping by

We have a very similiar travel wish list. I've been to about half on your list but my favorites are definetely Scotland and the island of Crete. The difference in both of these places is the way the people that live there.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Wait a bit on the UK journey---with the exchange rate at $2 to the pound, you could probably make several trips back to Missouri for the same price and throw in Maine as well!

thanks for stopping by ours!

Well, I've been to Ireland, Scotland, England, Vermont, and Branson--worthy places, one and all. Of course, you know me. If I never spend a travel dollar anywhere but Ireland and Scotland, I'll be a happy girl. Now I've got my British passport, so Doug and I can live and work anywhere in the EU. Girl, it is so tempting.....

The Maine Coast is beautiful. And the UK is #1 on my list of places I want to visit.
Not much left of Greece from what I've been hearing. The place is going up in smoke!
