In no particular order I introduce my List of Places I would like to Visit Before I Die:
New York City, USA
I want to see, hear and smell the big city! I know that I could never live in NYC but the thought of living the big city life for a few days really has me curious. The hustle and bustle, the fashion, the shopping, the walking, the buildings, the food, everything! Not to mention seeing all of the typical landmarks like Times Square and City Park. While I would love to go to NYC with my hubby I honestly think that a trip with a girlfriend would be even better, did I mention the SHOPPING!
Ever since I can remember I have wanted to go to Australia, I honestly do not remember why this became a place I wanted to visit. Maybe the koalas? Ha! I don’t know, but as I have grown up it is still on my list. The Sydney Opera house is breath taking, the beautiful Harbor Bridge just adds to the site and all I can think about is taking an evening stroll and
seeing that backdrop.
Oh Tuscany, take me there now. My coworker took a trip to Tuscany last year and the moment she returned and showed me her pictures and told me her stories I was ready to book a trip. Cathedrals, Galleries, History, and a lifestyle that we would all benefit from. Slow paced, enjoying life to the fullest. I would love to go and see the catacombs, enjoy some gelato and Italian vino and do some history lessons all while people watching in the plaza. Some day. What a perfect place for an anniversary trip?
London, United Kingdom
London calling? Yes, yes and yes! Spending a few days exploring London would be a dream. Westminster Abby, London Eye, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace! The history of each building really interests me.
Paris, France (AGAIN!)
If I could choose one place to move too it would be Paris. We visited there in 2006 and it was amazing. Both Jeremy and I loved the culture, the people, the city and the art. I loved the way we could get along without a car, either walking or taking the train. Simple yet so organized. The food was fantastic as well. When we visit again, we will make sure to hit all of our favorite places like the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and so many other well known places. But mostly, I would love to go to one of the many beautiful parks and enjoy a fresh dinner on a blanket while reading. Ahhh…pure heaven.
San Francisco, USA
My good friend lived in San Francisco and we never took the opportunity to visit and I am bummed. The weather is my kind of weather, perfect place to site see and enjoy the crisp breeze. Top things I would love to see; The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Cable Cars and Chinatown! Seriously! While I would love for the kids to come, if we did this trip soon I would opt for it to be just an adult trip! What a fun weekend getaway we could plan!
Ireland, the land of the Irish…duh. I am adopted therefore I do not know my nationality but I do know that I grew up feeling Irish! My dad looks like a leprechaun, my cousins spent months traveling around Ireland and I was jealous. I wanted that, still do! I want to kiss the blarney stone, walk in the rain, see the cliffs and visit the Cathedrals.
Blue water and the Mediterranean diet and experience. I honestly, do not know much about Greece but the scenery is amazing. I would find that this exploration would be a great relaxing trip!
Anywhere in Hawaii! I went to Maui when I was 18 and it was amazing. I did something I never thought I would do, paragliding! I have a crazy fear of heights but in my Hawaiian hangover I didn’t care. The beaches, the luaus, the people and the sun. Perfect getaway. I want an adult trip there!
Wow, just wow. I don’t care if I only have a day to spare. To see these stone heads would be amazing. These symbols tell a story of the land what a place for history! I can tell that the land around the statues is just beautiful. Lush green farmlands!
Yellowstone National Park, USA
Is it sad that I have never been here? Yes! I believe will do a family vacation to visit this National Park when the kiddos are a bit older! Beautiful scenery!
Washington DC, USA
Well, this one too…I have lived here in the USA for over 30 years and I have never seen our capital or monuments of DC! I am not that into Politics but there is so much history in the District of Columbia that I know I would be into it for that time! ;) Also, I would love to go when the Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom! Gorgeous!
