I was having trouble thinking of something to write about since Thursday’s are off topic. I’ve pretty much already talked about everything going on in my life and I don’t want to bore you. I quick text to my friend Megan and she came up with something right off the bat! Fantasize about ten places I would like to travel some day, sign me up now!
Number one has got to be Walt Disney World in Florida, for several reasons. The Disney Princess Half Marathon is held there and it is on my bucket list to run that. I’ve been re-reading the blog This Runners Trials, and it makes me want to run it sooooo much more! I am very excited about the run, but the WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER IS IN THE SAME PLACE! Well… close enough. Harry Potter was a huge part of my childhood and life in general, actually one of the first ‘good’ knitting projects I did, was a Harry Potter scarf.
I’ve wanted to go to Disney World since I was a little kid, my parents always said we would go when my brother was more mature, but he is turning 23 this year and we still haven’t went. I’m not holding my breath on that one…
If the first one is Florida, then the second one has to be California. Paul has some family down that way and we have talked about going to visit sometime. Also, that is where Disneyland is and the Tinker Bell Half Marathon is held; another bucket list item.
This was originally where Paul and I were going to honeymoon. I’ve always wanted to check out the Bahamas, but I really REALLY want to go to the aquarium there, Atlantis. I heard about it from a co-worker, looked it up and have been dying to go for a couple years now.
I want to travel all over Scotland, especially to see the Fairy Pools at the Isle of Skye. I’d like to see castles and learn about history. Perhaps visit a yarn mill or two?
The UK in general
I am a huge geeky fan of many British TV shows and I would love to see some of the sights that are important in those shows. As well as several books… cough, cough, Harry Potter, cough. Bodleian Library, Durham Cathedral, Kings Cross Station, Alnwick Castle.
Well… who doesn’t?
Chichen Itza, Mexico
Any Dresden Files fans? No? It’s not just the books, I promise, I have a great desire to see Aztec Temples. There is such a rich history there that I wouldn’t be able to resist.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Okay, the beach, urban rainforest, Corcovado, Sugar Loaf Mountains and Museu Historico Nacional. Who could say no to that?
Machu Picchu- Cuzco, Peru
I watched a lot of Discovery Channel as a child and became totally fascinated with the Inca people. That and I wouldn’t say no to Aguas Calientes either.
Rome, Venice, Florence, Naples… I could go on, but I want to see everything… and eat a LOT of pizza and pasta.
