Getting all packed and ready to go to a new destination is quite invigorating. I have yet to broaden my horizons and travel outside of the US, but plan to very soon! The farthest I have been from my homeless in Los Angeles is… Seattle, WA. I have a inkling that I will catch the travel bug once I set foot on an international flight. More please! The list is plentiful of cities I would LOVE to go to, here are the ones that made the top 10:
Barcelona, Spain – Number 1 by a landslide. I am in absolute awe of the work of Antoni Gaudi. Park Guell and his buildings would be breathtaking to see in person. My affinity is toward mosaics as I delve into tile art myself so seeing these works would make me gleam with inner joy.
New York City, New York – The big apple. Time Square. I love crowded, noisy city life. I also want to see the Radio City Rockettes perform to get me in the holiday spirit.
Sydney, Australia – A surfer with an Australian accent is damn sexy. *Sigh* The architecture of the Opera House is pretty nice too, don’t get me wrong.
London, England – Venturing to the UK sounds quite fun. The Big Ben and Buckingham Palace await.
Honolulu, Hawaii – I want to swim with dolphins. Also, luaus are very fun. I took hula dancing for a number of years and had the pleasure of attending a few.
San Jose, Costa Rica – Seems very peaceful. The waves and vast landscape would calm my soul.
Tokyo, Japan – The culture of Japan is beautiful. I want to absorb the bright lights, fashion and glorious atmosphere of it all.
Amsterdam, Netherlands – Weed anyone?
Rome, Italy – Two words: Byzantine mosaics. Also, the Vatican. I am not religious but the grand presence of the building and all of its treasured art is nothing short of magnificent.
Cairo, Egypt – The civilization that lived among the pyramids is extremely fascinateing to me. The complex system of hieroglyphics and tragic stories of Cleopatra are subjects I have read much about.
I finally got my Passport (yay!) so I’m all ready to go. Gonna go pack my bags. Hope TSA doesn’t find my trusty vibrator tucked away in my suitcase…
