My Bucket List of Places to Visit

It’s time for Friday’s Five! This week I’m listing the top five places I want to visit.

(These aren’t in any sort of order. I’m not picky about what comes first)

1. Scotland – I picture lush green grass, hills and castles. I really, really want to see some castles. Oh, and men in kilts. Can’t forget the men in kilts. And I want to hear the accents. Sigh. The accents

2. England – Anywhere in England. I’d love to see an old English pub and more castles (do you detect a theme here?). I actually have family in England. Well, extended family. My brother-in-law hales from York, I believe but lives in the US now. Why, I don’t know when he can live in ENGLAND.

3. Paris. For the usual reasons. Because it’s a romantic city, because it has so much history and because I’m writing about it right now and would love an up close and personal look. I actually have an invitation for a girl’s weekend away with my SIL in Paris. Wish I could afford it 😦

4. Venice – Part of the book I’m writing now is set in Venice and from my research it sounds like a beautiful, romantic city. Plus I want to ride on a gondola.

5. The Mediterranean – Blue, blue water. White sands. If I had to pick one place, just one, to visit, this would be it.Okay. Your turn. Where would you like to go if you had the chance?

  1. I’m with you alllll the way on the Mediterranean. Particularly any spot in Greece. And I’d love to explore an Aztec pyramid and then laze through a vacation in Bali. Rio – I have full-on, hallucinating day-dreams about Rio – and Ireland and Scotland, too. That’s technically 6, but I figure I could do Ireland & Scotland, same trip. lol. As you can see I need to win PowerBall and get that passport ready!

  2. Easy to see why you write romance, Sharon, with a bona fide romantic heat!
    My five places? If I can include returning in the No. 1 spot:
    1. Isle of Iona (Scotland)
    2. The Orkneys (Scotland)
    3. Cornwall (England)
    4. Malta
    5. New Mexico 9the high mesas)

  3. I’m still holding out for the UK pub crawl on horseback that was supposed to be our honeymoon. I’ve done tropical (would go back in a heartbeat), I’ve done desert, and I’ve tried white water rafting. The ride wouldn’t be so romantic, per se, but it’s definately on my bucket list!! Thanks for posting this and warming my brain up this morning 🙂

  4. First off I shouldn’t be too picky as I already live in one of them, but for me the top three to see would be Rome, Venice, and Prague…or anything else that has really old monuments still standing.

    Good luck with your book!

  5. What a cool post.
    First, I’m with D’Ann–I’m not much of a traveler, but that’s because I don’t fly. But let’s say for this post’s sake that I had money and wasn’t afraid of flying.
    Here are the places I’d visit.
    1) Japan. I love anime and Japan is seriously the anime capital of the world.
    2) England
    3) Scotland
    3) Colorado
    4) Chicago
    5) Ireland.
