It snowed about a foot last night and the clouds parted to show us some blue sky.
I found this 2008 Lonely Planet Go List book at the Salvation Army and just had to buy it. I know all the “cool” travelers have already visited much of this book, but it showed me that just when I thought I’d gone a lot of places, there is still so much more to see. I’m not sure I could pick out just one place in this GO LIST to visit. I want to go to at least 4 right now and I’m sure my choices would change tomorrow. It also makes me want to buy the 2009 and the 2010 edition.
So as of today I would choose to visit Bhutan, Turkey, Kazakhstan, and Morocco.
I asked friends on Facebook where they would go and I heard:
Greece, Italy, Turkey, N. Korea, Bhutan, Iceland, Nepal, Czech Republic, Cuba, and Fiji.
Places that I’d love to go back to include: Tibet, Nepal, Egypt, Indonesia and Czech Republic.
I’m a history teacher so this list was perfect for me. I’ve been to Victoria Falls and heard my dad quoting “Mr. Livingstone I presume” the whole time I was there. I grew up in Washington State and so have been around Lewis and Clark’s explorations my whole life. And I lived in China, but that’s only a small portion of Marco Polo’s travels. I have a lot more to do.
I would love to go to every single place on this list. I’ve been to Tibet, Mongolia, and Egypt, but not to the specific places listed on this list. I loved Tibet and Mongolia has it’s own charm. I wish I could spend more time in each.
Ryan had these hanging about the closet, so when we cleaned it out I decided to put them on Etsy instead of throwing them away as he suggest. I just sold them all. Awesome! It doesn’t get much better than taking what we thought was worthless and turning it into cash.
