Five Places You Want To Visit

As I have read on other lists, it is hard to decide where to visit ... whether it's for a day, or a month, plays a big part in that choice, I suppose.  Anyway - here goes:-

  1. Italy - I have been to Italy a few times as a teen/20+ with the family back in the early 80's, but I would love to return.  I would like to go back to the places I went to last time - Venice, Rome, Sorrento, Pompei & Vesuvious, Pisa; but this time also see Monte Casino, Florence, etc, etc.  So I suppose I need a rich guy, and a couple of months.  Or, maybe I can get to see these places one at a time.

  2. The States - again, I would like to go back to some of the places I saw before - New York, Washington, Niagra, Williamsburg; but this time I would also like to see Boston, and the S.W. ... Los Angeles, San Fransisco, Las Vegas, etc.

  3. Scotland - I would love to see more of England, but do that whenever I can, however I really would like to see Scotland - to visit Edinburg, to go to John o Groats, to see the Loch Ness Monster, etc

  4. I would love to see Disney (the Florida one), so I could see all the parks as well.

  5. I need a helicopter (that rich guy again), as I would love to see assorted places in assorted countires.  So would need to hop around the world .... Christ Redeemer Statue, Machu Pichu, Pyramids, a Thai Temple, Ayers Rock, Blaney Castle, the Taj Mahal, etc

So, as you see I need a rich guy, a camera plus some spare memory discs, and loads of time, and I will be sorted!!!

Loads of time and money would be great for a lot of reasons.

Lol .... but sadly true

I must say John o Groats was a huge disappointment to be. There is nothing there. I think they have since added a pub of some sort but before it was this shack of a tourist shop. It is no where near anything either so it is a long trip for a coast line. I think it would have better impact if you also did Land's End in England in the same holiday.

I want to go to John o Groats, as I have been west, east, south .... so need to go North.  I wasn't impressed with any of them, just nice to say I have been there

Sounds like you might managed some of those?
13th-Mar-2016 07:57 pm (UTC)

Oh yes I will get to many of them in the future

Hopefully some of them, although nothing while I still have Dad, and with Jiffy I don't want to take him out of Britain

Scotland is absolutely gorgeous - I've been to several different places and always loved it. Edinborough is gorgeous but very busy. :) I've never been to Loch Ness though. :)

I would love to see the Pyramids. That's my great dream really - I'd just have to get over my travelling problems first ...

17th-Mar-2016 07:08 pm (UTC)

Sounds like we need to make a date to meet at the pyramids 🙌

You can do the arranging, I can do the showing up! ;)

I went up to Inverness the other year, drove all the way around the Loch but didn't find Nessie. Very disappointing I tell you! LOL
17th-Mar-2016 07:09 pm (UTC)

Oh no, maybe I will have better luck

Boston is lovely. I've been to the US once, and I was mostly in the New Hampshire area when there. A great great place.

I need to see the Tea Party ... what a waste of tea

Italy is definitely on my list too! Chris spent a month there before we got married and I keep telling him he needs to take me. We're talking about potentially going around our 5th anniversary so I hope that works out!

I want to go back to Disney so bad!

Its fun to dream but I hope at least one of those dreams on your list becomes a reality <3

PS: As always, I LOVE all your photos. You live in such a beautiful area!

Tim and Claire were going to go for their silver wedding last year.  However they decided to have a big meal for friends to celebrate that and Claire recovery from breast cancer.  Many of their friends are non Christians, but they had a friend who gave a lovely message for them
