Thirteen Places I've Never Been that I Would Like to Go To

1. Paris in the springtime - I've dreamt about this since I was a young girl. I imagine sipping cappucinos at a sidewalk cafe, strolling over bridges in the mist, driving along the country side, visiting museums....
2. Ireland - my husband says that we will eventually honeymoon there...and even spend a night or two in a castle!
3. Nashville Tennessee - it's the home of many kinds of music, and my husband would add.. it's the home of the Gibson guitar factory.
4. The Maritimes - I've wanted to visit PEI ever since I first read Anne of Green Gables as a girl. I imagine visiting pubs, great music and dancing...and seafood!
5. Norway (or Switzerland or Sweden) - it just looked SO picturesque when the Winter Olympics were there.
6. Canmore, Alberta - I've heard it is just so pretty.
7. Orchards and wine country in B.C. - a sample of Icewine along the way sounds good to me:)
8. Scotland - my maternal grandmother's family was from there (and was somehow related the Queen mum even!)
9. England - my maternal grandad's family was from there.
10. Austria - my paternal grandparents were from there.
11. Quebec - if I can't get to France...maybe the Canadian version will do?!
12. Florence - it sounds romantic, doesn't it?!
13. The delivery room.

Ooh, I would also like to go to #2, #8, #9, and #10. Don't you wish we could just jump on a plane to go anywhere anytime?

Thanks for visiting my T13. :)

Me, too! I would love to see them all. I've been to Nashville, TN. My dear friend lives there. She gets to show me all the really cool places... not just the touristy places. She works in the music biz. Her friend gave us free tickets to see Toby Keith and LeAnn Womak last year... back stage passes and all. So that's a nice bonus ;)
I hope you get to.
My 13 are up!

Lazy Daisy said...

Some great choices. Pick one and plan a trip....sounds do-able to me! Love your visits...don't be a stranger.

Matt said...

Oh, I LOVED Ann of Green Gables, though I must admit that I'm partial to the movies, which is rare for me since I'm not a big fan of books made from movies. I want to go to Ireland, too; my husband and I both have ancestry from there. Actually, I'd love to visit all of these places, either for the first time or again.

Nashville is amazing, so laid back and beautiful. But no, no, no, Canmore. Gotta come to Cochrane, AB! You will feel as if you are back in the Old West downtown, in the Bow Valley, by the Bow River, surrounded by mountains. We even had Brad Pitt and Angelina drop by one of our local restaurants and walking down our red dirt paths when in the area -- it was that quiet.
