Where in the world would you like to go?

We have 3 trips scheduled in the first 3 months of the year - S California, N California and Key West. Add at least one trip to NH and returns to California and that is 6 trips this year. All but the Key West trip are family visits.

So I've been thinking about where in the world I'd like to go if I could add a trip with no concern about travel time or cost.

To start with, I could visit my nephew and his family in Kisumu, Kenya. That would be an adventure!

I've been pining for a trip to Paris forever! Perhaps in the summer when they create a beach along the Seine?

There are some fascinating Road Scholar trips to Cuba. Now would be the time to go.

And Ireland calls to me. Perhaps its the part Scot-Irish heritage? Definitely on my list.


Then there are Santa Fe and Taos. We almost went to Santa Fe for Thanksgiving this year but the airfare was horrendous. If money didn't matter though - I'd go there.

San Antonio is on the list too. Perhaps the Riverwalk instead of the Seine?

 We've been talking about a trip to NYC for ages. Now one of my nieces lives there as do some friends so that would be fun.

Those are some of my travel dreams. Perhaps I'd better buy a lottery ticket LOL.

Where in the world would you like to go? Remember, money is no barrier.


  1. We just got back from 2 weeks in Turkey. It was a great trip. You might want to add that to your wish list. At the top of my list now are Israel and Egypt.

  2. What an inspiration! My dream is to take a trip around the world: England & Ireland; Israel; So. Africa; India; Hong Kong; Australia; New Zealand; Hawaii. Everyplace where they speak English (so I can understand what's going on).

  3. I think New Zealand and the Seychelles. But believe it or not, I have lived on the West Coast most of my life and never been to Hawaii, though I have been to Europe many times. If you do get to Paris or the UK, here are some ideas for you when you get there in a blog I wrote awhile ago (in case you haven't seen this one)

    1. I had to look up where the Seychelles are LOL. Looks like I could go there from Kenya - hmmm.

    2. I read a book by the actress Carroll Baker's "To
      Africa with Love" and fell in love with the idea of the Seychelles. My hubby says forget it, it's at the end of the earth, but I still want to go there. If you can find that book, I recommend it. It will make you fall in love with the idea.

    3. Thanks for the suggestion. Too bad we don't know each other IRL as it sounds like we are more adventurous travel wise than our hubbies LOL.

  4. From your list: we will be visiting Santa Fe and Taos in May, and San Antonio in August. We also have plans to rent an apartment for a month in Paris in April 2015. I happily forego cable, SmartPhones and a landline to beef up our travel budget!

    1. Your plans are fabulous! Looking forward to hearing about how you enjoyed them.

  5. Ireland would be incredible... not too keen on anywhere in North America however.. lol! I'd love to visit Malta one day (husbands family is all from there) and while i'm over there, I may as well go to Greece, Italy, etc...
