I want to travel.

In the grand scheme of things I realize travel isn’t of great importance, but I can’t hep’ it. I wanna go places. I want to stand on a distant shore, feel the wind in my hair and know, for that moment, the redneck within is tucked, far, far away… and I’m an international traveler… a woman of excitement… adventure… intrigue!
Of course that would last about all of a minute until I open my mouth to ask “Hey y’all! Where’s the local Starbucks?”
And the fact that I hate to fly posts a bit of a problem.
We can dream.
We can dream and watch the travel channel.
Does anyone remember those scenes from “The Man from Snowy River” that show the wide open range? I mean, doesn’t that just make you wanna strap on a pair of chaps, hop on the next plane to “down under” and hug a koala? Anyone?
Koalas or not, sometimes you just have to get away. A change of scenery is good for the soul.
And you don’t always have to go far. A day trip or a local eatery that you’ve never checked out can
often do the trick.
With that said, we haven’t been many places. There are a few favorite vacation spots, that I can’t wait to share with you, and many local/regional jaunts that we escape to often.
Of course most any where in Europe would be at the top of my list of places to see.
So, answer this…
Where would you go at the drop of a hat? What would you do when you get there?
Wherever it is, get out there! See the world! Even if it’s only down the street.You’ll be glad you did.
Turkey! It’s so exotic and different. And anywhere in Latin America. Spanish speaks to my soul.
I would love to visit the East Coast, as well as Italy, Greece and Australia. Florida I would leave in a second for. Living in the Midwest is great, but I would love to see more!
Ireland. Always Ireland. We went in 2008 for our 20th wedding anniversary. Spent ten days just driving around and taking it all in. Took loads of photos (if you ever want to look at them, they’re at http://www.flickr.com/photos/nanalana/sets/72157622292605989/
It was amazing. Actually amazing doesn’t really describe it. I’d go back in a heartbeat.
I’d take another trip with my LoveFeast friends to Italy….I’d go back to Panzano and have the best wine ever. http://www.lovefeasttable.com/blog/brunello-heaven
Italy. Or Spain. Or maybe Ireland. Oh who am I kidding, I just want to travel. And take photos…lots and lots of photos.
I have wanted to go to Bora Bora Island ever since I saw Lifestyles of the rich and famous oh about 25 years ago. Now seeing your pics of the Bahamas (gorgeous by the way) we might have to visit, don’t worry I won’t tell anyone. Could you please post about the camera you use, my hubby recently bought me a Nikon D90 and I’m so far just plain confused. I want so badly to take beautiful pictures like yours.
Bora Bora sounds good too!
Here’s a post I did about photography and what camera I use(d). I just upgraded to a D300 a few weeks ago so the majority of photos here were shot with a Nikon D50. I have several friends who have the D90 and post beautiful photography. One is Karly at http://bunsinmyoven.com/ and another is Amanda at http://justmovingforward.wordpress.com/ (she uses both a D90 and a D200).
The books I mention in the post are really worth it. In addition, Magic Lantern tutorials (they come with a book and DVD) are super helpful. You purchase specific ones for you camera model – they’re great too.
Hope this helps! Maybe I see you in Eleuthera one day?
Hi! I would LOOOOVE to go to a dude ranch…don’t know where, but a DUDE RANCH!
My next place would also be Bora Bora/ Fiji area. I would probably need the vaca to Fiji after going to the dude ranch!! 😉
I really really want to go to Antartica…and play with penguins…
To pinpoint and choose just one location amongst the thousands of classics and non-traditional treasures…Right now, in this moment…I’d go to Wales. And in Wales, I’d take on the Arthurian Scramble and hike up The Snowdon Horseshoe where, according to legend, King Arthur and his Knights fought their last battle on the slopes there. It’s a fantastic, fog-shrouded green mount that seems mystical by its very nature.
I want to rent a house in France and take cooking classes there and ride my bike in the countryside with a bottle of wine, some cheese, a baguette and my precious husband.
I live in Scotland which has beautiful scenery but we don’t have great weather so I would go back to the Caribbean….that beautiful sparkling turquoise sea and soft powdery white sands are just beautiful. Have been six or seven times on holiday on cruise liners and each time it just gets nicer and nicer.
Mr. Wonderful and I are packing up our home as I write. we have sold it and will be full timing in our 36′ motor home as we travel this country for a few years. Scary … but I’m excited!
