Thirteen places I really want to visit one day:
  1. India and Sri Lanka. And do (among other things) a tiger safari from the back of an elephant.
  2. The Kokoda Track. Have heard many stories, now need to experience it for myself.
  3. Antarctica. In the summer. Sunshine all day and all night.
  4. Sicily. I went to Italy, but never went further south than Naples. And I wish I had.
  5. South America. Overland from top to bottom. Or bottom to top. I'm not fussy.
  6. The Marquesa Islands. I know very little about them. But I hear they are gorgeous.
  7. West Africa. When it's safe. And when I learn French. Maybe I'll go before either of those happen.
  8. The Galapagos Islands. Have always been fascinated by the marine iguanas. And all the other life that abounds there.
  9. Prague. Was so close and yet, so far. I never made it there and wish I had. There are SO many things I'd love to see.
  10. Paris. For reasons, see number 9.
  11. Gallipoli (in Turkey). But not on Anzac Day. Some time when it's quieter and the Aussie tourist hype is not quite as great.
  12. China. Would like to walk the Great Wall from one end to the other.
  13. Lake Eyre, South Australia. A huge salt lake (when there is water in it). The bird life is (apparently) amazing.

There are many more. But I'm at 13 already.

Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I am using auto-link to link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted! Most especially comments. I LOVE comments.
I have a new rule - if you don't want to leave a comment, that is perfectly ok. I still love the comments, but you don't have to leave one. But then, I just won't leave one on yours. And I am so witty and full of wisdom (some may perceive that wisdom as crap) that missing out on a comment from me would really be your loss. Such a huge loss...

Interesting about the Kokoda Track. (John T. is going to do that walk in June - I was over there the other night and saw a book about it on the bench. I asked "When are you going to do the walk?" Chris said, "When he finishes reading the book!")

I think you need a job as a roving reporter to see all those places. What do you think - 60 Minutes, Getaway or the Great Outdoors?

BTW, should I add that blurb about TT to the bottom of my TT?

That's some list! I've never even heard of a few of those places.

So many places that I could add to this list.

I've found a couple of places that I love (like Barbados) that I could just visit over and over again, but refuse to because there is so much to see in this amazing world of ours.

Hope you get to them all.

You must really love to travel. I like it after I get there, and seeing the sights, but I hate the planning and flying and the red tape.

Anarctica would be very nice to visit.

You do realize it would probably take you over 6 months of straight walking to walk across the great wall of China, right?!? It's a lot farther that you think. Don't get me wrong, I would one day like to walk on it, but not the length of it.

I could handle going to ANY of those 13 places -- I do especially think it would be neat to visit Antarctica in summer! (though I'm not sure why ... because I couldn't stay away all night - even if it IS daylight!) LOL! Great list!

Mine's up!

I'd love to see Ireland, Israel and London.
Happy Trails & see you next week,

Tanya, I love to travel also. The world is so wonderful and it never fails that you realize how small it is when you get out in it. I managed at TT and think I will keep it up. Be blessed.
