So many places I'd like to see...

I have a wish list...

...well, I suppose everyone does.

but right now I'm talking about a very specific list in my list of wishes, wants, dreams, travel wish list.

There are places I've wanted to go since I was a little girl, and places I've learned about over the years. Places I've never seen, but I ache for in my soul, like a vaguely remembered dream.

and truly, I've managed a few of them so far, but there is so much more I want to see!

I must see England, and Ireland, The Isle of Man, The Outer Hebrides, Patagonia, Australia, Montserrat, Africa, India, Russia, Germany! Savannah, GA, New Hampshire, Maine, The Carolinas, New York City, Boston, Nova Scotia. I want to see the Louvre and go to Southern Spain. I want to walk The Camino de Santiago de Compostela.

Google Earth has been my best friend for virtual "travels" until I am able to make the trips for real. I can "fly" to any city of my choosing. Browse coastlines and cities at my leisure.

Prompt #65: What is on your wish list? or, what places have you've been?

There is so much to see out there, and I want to see it all. I want to travel so much it almost hurts. I almost want to sell everything and spend two years trekking the globe. What do I really have to lose at the end of it all?

Travel is fantastic. Ever since I was little I poured over atlases, and to this day I love travel books. It's overwhelming. Italy's at the top of my list right now. Stateside - I think Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. Then again...there's Maine. And I never tire of New York City. Darn Karen, now I'm ready to pack my bags!
