Thirteen places I would like to visit someday

1. Ever since my Art History class, I have vowed to go to Turkey to see the Hagia Sophia. All the pictures of it in my textbook were breathtaking.

2. I must go to Paris, yep, I must. And while there, I must go to EuroDisney. Yep!

3. I want to stay overnight in a castle in Germany. I also want to visit Neuschwanstein. Did you know Sleeping Beauty's Castle at Disneyland was modeled after it?

4. I have been to New York many times and it is one of my favorite places to be. But I have yet to ice skate at the Rockefeller Center. So, I must do that.

5. I would love to visit D.C. I have yet to visit there and I would really love to go. I think that would be a good family vacation when the kiddos are a tad older.

6. It would be amazing to go to Israel and tour many Biblical sites. Definitely something that would be incredible and unforgettable.

7. I have been to Oahu, but I would love to visit Kauai. It is supposed to be beautiful, serene, romantic.

8. My hubby has always wanted to go to Alaska and would prefer an Alaskan cruise. I think Alaska would be an amazingly beautiful place to visit. Plus, I would love to see the Northern Lights.

9. My grandpa was a Sioux Indian and one of my great great great ancestors was a chief. Because of that, I would love to go to South Dakota to see the reservations and learn more about that part of my ancestry.

10. I want to eat at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and at The Melting Pot someday.

11. I want to go on a missions trip to an orphanage.

12. I want to go to Haiti to visit my Compassion Child.

13. I want to be able to take my kids to various parts of the county, so that they can learn about the different states up close and personal.

Sorry, Turkey sounds great but I think Greece would win for me! I went to a Ruths Chris and I have to tell you that we have a place down here called Fogo Do Chao, and it rocks! It is about $50 per person but ALL YOU CAN EAT!!! Anyway, just saw you on my BC links and thought I'd come by and say hello. I have two blogs,
1. Praynladys blessings
2. Chasing Butterflies
If you go to the first one @ you will find a link to the 2 one! Hope you will come visit.

Kuaui is absolutely beautiful. I've been lucky enough to go once, but I was only 18 so I didn't appreciate it the way I would now. I also MUST go to Euro of my goals is to visit ALL Disney theme parks!

Thanks for stopping by my 13!

Courtney said...

Sounds like a lot of great travel plans in your future! I have been to D.C. and all 48 continental states, but would like to add Alaska & Hawaii for a complete 50 states. Thanks for visiting me today :)

AuntieM said...

Great idea for a TT....I have a lot of places that I could list to visit.
Thanks for visiting my TT.

Tracy said...

I have so many places I would love to go if I won the lottery! :)

My T13 is up! :)

I might have to add some of those to my list someday. We travelled a lot with our kids so they could see different parts of the country.

Noi Rocker said...

Oooo I wanna go to Paris too! Who wouldnt? Its beautiful.

Mary said...

My husband's friend from college, her dad runs the corporate Ruth Chris' Steakhouse regime! He used to be at Uno's (pizza place). They say it's a great place to eat!

I've been to DC but am dying to go to NYC!

Thanks for stopping by.

What an awesome list! I want to go to Israel too, and on a mission trip in general.
We want to take our son to DC also, when he gets older. So much history to look at there.

Carmen said...

I live near DC, and if you visit here, you can take care of eating at the Melting Pot and Ruth's Chris and take care of a few list things at once!

If you're looking for a more traditional hawaiian vacation then Kauai is definitely the island to go to. It's so green and beautiful. The beaches are to die for! Great T13 list!

Stacy said...

I'd like to go to a lot of those as well. Taking an Alaskan cruise ranks high on my list. Overseas travel (of which I've done zero) is right after that. We just went to DC last summer and had a blast!

And oh - I sooo want to go to the Melting Pot too, LOL!

Have a great day, I played too...

Christina said...

Very nice list. One of my dream vacations is to go on an Alaskan cruise. The Melting Pot is a very fun restaurant. It was one of the most popular places for my high school class to go to before prom.
