Do you see this sulk? Do you, really? Well, it’s because the Daily Prompt have managed to remind me of all the places I have never been!
What’s your favorite part about visiting a new place — the food? The architecture? The people watching?
There are so many countries I want to visit and so many places I would love to see, I don’t know where to start. I have never left South Africa and have, for that matter, never even set foot on a plane before. For every place I visit, I intend to learn a traditional dance, eat a traditional mean and wear a traditional outfit on top of learning some basic conversational sentences.
For the sake of this prompt then, in no particular order, herewith my
5 10 Places I will be visiting one day:
Spain – I want to eat and sip wine and talk and walk and listen and see and have a siesta and then do it all over again. I will have to do this one last as I fear I will never leave if I set foot in Spain.
Egypt – For this excursion I might have to sign up as an archaeologist assistant, because I really want to get into the thick of things with the pyramids.
Jerusalem – I want to see the streets were Jesus walked. Even though I said that I won’t put these in any specific order, this Pilgrimage is one that ranks highest on my list of places to visit.
Amazon Rain forest – This journey would need to be a long one, I would imagine that I would be spending about 2 years (lost) in the rain forest. I want to see it all and spend time with the tribes and learn their ways.
Africa – all of it! Every country, every capital, every culture, but most importantly Kilimanjaro.
Rio de Janeiro – In Carnival time. I think that the Mardi Grass is a once in a lifetime opportunity for anyone
England – Shakespeare, Lady Diana and other royalty, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, William Wallace, Nottingham and Stonehenge, castles and ruins.
Vienna – Perhaps if I can retrace the footsteps of Freud, I can make more sense of the crazy world we live in.
New York – The City that never sleeps, home to the New York Stock Exchange and 5th Avenue Shopping district. This is where I plan to buy myself a pair of ridiculously expensive Jimmy Choo’s.
Paris – The City of Love – Need I say more. I am a die heart romantic, in case you haven’t noticed.
