Oh, the Places You Will Go!

I love learning about and experiencing different cultures. Honestly, I don't try ethnic cuisine very often and the countries that I have visited haven't been drastically different than my own, but I would still like to travel and learn more in my lifetime. Here's my list of places I'd like to visit someday (yes, some are in the US, too):

1. Tuscany, Venice, Rome (I've been to Venice and Rome and LOVED them! I love the Tuscan culture with open-air markets, beautiful countryside and quaint, old villas.
2. Panama Canal
3. French countryside
4. Paris
5. Great Wall in China
5. South Africa
6. Yellowstone National Park
7. Grand Canyon
8. London and the English countryside (have you noticed a trend here? Countryside...)
9. Greece
10. Ljubljana, Slovenija (I went here on my first mission trip. It holds a special place in my heart. Plus, I'd love to see my dear friend, Ajda and meet her beautiful baby girl! Thank the Lord for email and being able to keep friendships that are an ocean apart!)

It would be a miracle to get to see all these places in my lifetime, but we sure could rack up some serious air miles along the way! I am intimidated by the idea of planning trips and figuring out where all the best places to stay, eat and explore are. We went to Toronto for our anniversary last year and left early because I got to overwhelmed and didn't know where to go. Well, maybe that's a slight simplification, but that was pretty much what happened. Now I'd like to go back and have a re-do. Luckily, it's only 2.5 hours from my sister's house in NY, so it's not outside the realm of possibility! Where do you want to travel to in your lifetime?


  1. Totally with you on # 1 - that's on my list too! I'd also like to see Australia and Prince Edward Island!

  2. I had thought about PEI, too! Everywhere in Canada that I've ever been has been beautiful!
