Top 10 Places in the World that I Want to Visit

I experience frequent wanderlust so I thought it apropos to list the 10 places in the world that I most want to visit in my lifetime :) 



IRELAND
There’s just something about the Emerald Isle that has always appealed to me. While I'm there, Dunluce Castle is at the top of my list.



AUSTRALIA
I have always, from the time I was an adolescent, dreamt of visiting Australia – particularly the Great Barrier Reef!!



YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
Exploring the pristine wilderness of Yellowstone has always been a dream of mine


PRAGUE
I have always had very romanticized notions of Prague…I would love to visit there someday.


COSTA RICA
Costa Rica, with its rain forest canopy tours and beautiful beaches, would be an amazing place to see.


LONDON
I would love to visit London - particularly at Christmastime! 

Victoria Falls - Victoria Falls, Matabeleland North
VICTORIA FALLS
Africa in general has always fascinated me, and Victoria Falls is a perfect representation of this beautiful continent. 


SWISS ALPS
I have always wanted to see what is often described as the most beautiful mountain chain on earth, the Swiss Alps.


GREECE
Greece is one of the most historically fascinating places on earth, and it would be simply amazing to visit! 


BORA BORA
I thought I’d save the best for last. This has been #1 on my list for years. The picture alone should tell you why. The definition of paradise on earth… 

It was VERY difficult to narrow this list to 10 - I can most definitely see another list in a future blog post.

What’s your dream destination?

  1. Any of these destinations are reachable for less than the price of a used car. Unless you want to go on a tour with a bunch of "old folks" and see it from the outside, better hurry up these dreams! I've been to half these places, too old now for the other half, but it was fun for the taking while I was young. Good Luck! or Strong Will, that will get you there.

  2. I love each and every place on you list! I hope you make it to all of them!

  3. What beautiful places! I'm going to Ireand in March, I'm going to Dublin though so I won't be able to experience the beautiful views you posted. If you come to London at Christmas make sure you pay a visit to Winter Wonderland. It is lovely hear at Christmas but the fact that its dark before 4pm is a but depressing.
    My dream destination is Alaska.

  4. Great list. I've driven through Yellowstone, but would love to spend more time there. One of the best trips I've ever taken was to Prague. Beautiful city, would love to go back some day.

  7. Great list - I've only been to Ireland. Yellowstone, London, and Greece are high on my list, along with Alaska and Seattle.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Londo and Australia are tops on my list for sure, but those are all great. I agree with you though Bora Bora wins hands down.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Lovely choices!

    Mmmm, the Greek Isles. I'd love to visit there.

    I had a dream of visiting Paris, for years and years. And my husband gave it to me, for one of our Anniversaries. And it was a joy!

  10. I love all the images you've used for this! Seeing the geysers at Yellowstone has always been firmly on my bucket list :) and I can confirm that Christmas is definitely the best time to see London.

  11. Australia is on my bucket list, so I hope to visit there before I'm too old to really enjoy it. My 17 year old son went to Greece last summer on a school trip. Little bastard.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm with you on a couple but the one place I would say I want to visit most of all is probably Japan.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Paris ;)
    London, Moscow, Vienna, Lyon, Australia, Egypt, Santorini, Italy....

    ReplyDelete
  14. Scotland, all of the UK, Japan, Nova Scotia... I'd go to London, Ireland, or Australia with you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. A great list. For me, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Great list! Shall I make you jealous?... ;o)

    Ireland IS gorgeous! I went for a 4-day weekend and ended up staying a week (snow flight delay). Sadly only visited the area surrounding Dublin (or max 2h drive). In that part a must see is the Wicklow Mountains (where they filmed parts of Braveheart, among others). Breathtakingly gorgeous! I definitely want to go back some day for a proper holiday and see MORE!

    Australia: I've been twice!!! But only to Tasmania... which is a MUST if you ever go "down under". It's one of my top three "most beautiful places in the world" (with the Canadian Rockies and the South Island of New Zealand). Tassie's got lush rainforests, mountains, great scuba diving... fabulous! :o)

    Prague: fantastic!!! I spent a weekend there, sadly in winter (cold!)... loved it! Gorgeous city, great atmosphere and fantastic food! Another place I want to return to...

    London: I've been 6 (?) times. And will hopefully return for many more similar weekends (read more here). ;o)

    Swiss Alps and Costa Rica: I've been to both! But can't remember... celebrated my 5th birthday up in Interlaken and near the Mont Blanc, and was 3 months old when my parents took me with them into Costa Rica. So definitely have to go back! (more recently I've visited Basel)

    Greece: this was (and still is!) my dream destination as a child, I was NUTS about Greek mythology! Then 2 years ago a friend of mine got married in Athens, so dream come true! Added to that: last summer my parents organised a week-long sailing trip w/ friends and family in the Saronic Islands to celebrate their 40th anniversary... fantastic!!! Check it out (still ongoing writing, late I know!) here

    Jealous yet? ;o)

    1. as my sister would say: "muahahahaha!!!" ;o)

      Let me know if you need advice when organising a trip to one of these places... be glad to pass on tips!

  17. My #1is Italy which I visited in 2006. I'd love to go to the Amalfi Coast next!

    ReplyDelete
  18. But to answer your question, dream destinations of mine include (in no particular order): Yellowstone, Alaska, the Red Sea (scuba!), the Great Barrier Reef (scuba!), the waterfalls of Iguazú, the Scottish Highlands (hiking), South Africa, the Galapagos, Patagonia, the Amazon, Vienna, Budapest, Jerusalem, Saint Petersburg...

    And some places I've been and would simply love to return to: Antarctica, New Zealand, Greece, Ireland, the Grand Canyon, Morocco, Mexico, England, Wales, France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Jordan...

    Too many wonderful places to go, not enough time (or money)! ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  19. My number 1 is definitely Italy. Ever since taking Italian classes in high school.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm going to make crazycris jealous. I've been to Yellowstone 29 times. Ha!
    My dream destinations would be, Norway, London, New Zealand and The Applachians.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You succeeded! VERY jealous! Must be a wonderful place for you to have gone that many times!

      That and/or you live right next door... ;o)

  21. don't come to Ireland, we got no money and no weather! But loved Prague, Costa Rica , I found London too busy!

    I want to go to Japan.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Prague looks like it's made of lead, and yet, it's strangely romantic looking.

  23. im from london and it is a wonderful place you must see it. i really want to go to italy, japan and vietnam... i want to see a caribbean beach... i love to travel.
    ireland is beautiful, although i have only seen dublin and i would recommend india as a destination unparalleled xx

    ReplyDelete
  24. Quite a list. No, your Bora Bora doesn't turn me on but the Swiss Alps and Greece would have beckoned to me some years ago. Right now, I'm finished with traveling and all I want are symbols of permanency like a weed whacker and a clothes line.
    Hope you arrive at all your travel desires destinations.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've been to London, but none of the other places. Ireland and Greece for me.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Honestly I never knew Victoria Falls existed and now I have to make it a point in my life to get there! beautiful post

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your list is wonderful! I would go to any of those places given the chance, especially to Ireland and London. I want to visit Alaska.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's nice to see-that Ireland is on top of your list:) I live in Ireland-this is a beautiful place:)
    I want to visit a Moon;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. All your picks are super, but if I had to pick just one place, it'd be Australia, because I'd love to see a duck-billed platypus. Or somewhere north, to watch the Northern lights. Or, maybe like Dolores, I'd just like to hop a ride back to the '50s...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love your blog! Maybe we could follow each other on bloglovin or GFC? Please leave me a comment or follow me and I will follow you =)

  31. Keith,
    I just read your rhyme comment over at Pat Hatt's. I like it. I'm hooked on Pat's rhyming and long after I write my comment, I want to rhyme all my comments on all the blogs. Ha

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes I noticed after a few visits to his blog that every single thing he writes (even his replies to blog comments) are in rhyme. So now his blog is one of my favorite to comment on because it's actually kind of fun to play the rhyme game over there!

    2. Glad it is fun
      As you and the cat rhyme under my sun

  32. Done 5 from your list
    What was the name of that 1970s song?
    " I've even to paradise but I've never been to me"

    Okok I would like to go to Rome

    ReplyDelete
  33. These are all so wonderful...and right now a beautiful escape sounds dreamy. For me, hands down: Italy.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Very pretty. I've been to Wyoming. It was our sort of honeymoon. I say sort of because we went way after we got married. It's super pretty!

    Check out Savannah, Georgia to. It's where I went to grad school. Lots of history, magnolia trees, Spanish moss, old buildings, cobblestone streets. It's beautiful. I would have stayed, but my allergies couldn't handle it.

    Where I'd visit? I'm not a travel girl. It makes me nervous. I would however love to go to Oregon. It's where my oldest sister was born and adopted from.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've only been to two on your list: London and Yellowstone. I'd love to see Germany, Hungary, Russia, and Egypt. And Bora Bora!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've been to several of the places on your list and loved each one. I'd really like to see the Iguazu Falls that borders Brazil and Argentina. I'd also like to go to Angkor Wat.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, Keith, this is SO up my alley! I have a world map on my wall with pins of where I've been and where I'm going. Getting to change out a green pin (green means go) with a pink pin is one of my greatest delights! I think you'd benefit from a map. :)

    Ireland is the home of my ancestors, so it holds magic for me, too. I have family still living in Italy (I'm third generation), so naturally I need to pay a visit. I could never narrow down my list... maaaan...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ireland, England, Spain, Greece... I want to go everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love your list! I spent my entire 20s in other countries—Korea, Japan, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, Nepal, Tibet, Spain, Portugal, India.....it seems I spent much of my life traveling/living in other places. I haven't been to the places on your list with the exception of Yellow Stone. Would like to go to Australia as I have lots of blogging buddies there ^_^!

    ReplyDelete
  40. The pictures made each place so inviting! I would like to go to Wales, only because it's where one side of my ancestors are from, Japan is high on my list, as well as Spain.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Africa, Tibet, Patagonia, Brazil, Peru, Angkor, Borneo, Mars, the Pillars or Creation in the Eagle Nebula.

    Just to name a few...

    ReplyDelete
  42. My number one destination has always been Bora Bora. I read Tales of the South Pacific and was hooked...

    I would like to:
    Go to Churchill Manitoba to see the polar bears
    I am obsessed about going to Russia
    Alaska
    See the sloths in Costa Rica
    Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania
    Italy to see where my grandparents were born

    Really anywhere but where I am...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Those all sound good to me. The only one I've been to is London and it was amazing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Those are all great destinations! I have to say, I've always wanted to visit the Greek Isles. The white houses on the cliffs up against the beautiful water - so gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ive been to the Swiss Alps and they are just wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've been to some of those places and they surely didn't disappoint! The most recent was Ireland and I think I'd never get tired of it. There's not a picture you have there that doesn't make me want to visit any one of those places!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh Man I was positive it was Ireland and then you continued on with one after another of amazing destinations and now I would love to see them all.
    I do love British Columbia and the train through the mountains to Vancouver though. Done it once could do it a thousand times more It was incredible. In March was the best lots to see.. Great photos. B

    ReplyDelete
  48. Nice list. I have 5 of your 10 on my to do list (when I hit the lottery). :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. All great places to visit - I been to 3 out of your 10.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I've actually been to three of those.
    New Zealand is next on my list so I can see all the places they filmed LOTR.

    ReplyDelete
  51. you've got a great list, there. mine stay closer to home - and all within the confines of the US i think.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've only made it to London from your list! True Bora Bora needs no words. I'm hoping to conquer my fear of flying to visit Holland. Oh,....and thanks for still popping by in my absence, Keith!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ahhh, but have you been to Snowflake, Arizona in the summertime?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Jan. 16th... 17:33 EST

    You commented, in reply to my question: "My honest opinion is, don't change your blog based on what WE want, blog in a way that makes you happy :) we're not going anywhere."

    Thank you so much Keith!!!

    Have I told you lately, how happy I am, that I found you, in Blog Land?

  55. Hahaha, Laraine... Been and done Yellowstone. Never have been to Costa Rica, although my daughter spent her honeymoon there and said it was amazing. You've convinced me to add Bora Bora to my list. Ireland and Australia have always been on the list. Oh, and Greece. My immediate plans are within the US, as I have children and grandchildren scattered about. So the rest of the list is a "someday" thing that hopefully will become a reality, at least in part.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Great list! I might just copy it and keep for myself!

    ReplyDelete
  57. It all depends on your point of reference. Earlier, visiting a clean bathrom was paramount. Now, Bologna would be nice(my Dad was born there~I've been, but not in a while).

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have been to none of them....
    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go to England....
    and of course, Ireland too :)

    thanks so much for visiting my page

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love your top 10 list...I wish I can go to all of them too ~

    Thanks for your engaging posts ~

  60. Great list hope you make it to them all! I would love to visit Costa Rica, All of California, Greece, Italy and oh, so many more. Oh, I still have much to cover right here in NY. :-)

  61. These are all wonderful choices! Thanks for sharing and a virtual vacation :)

  64. I've been to Greece and the Swiss Alps... Ex husband is from Dublin (so, meh, that kind of ruined my love of all things Irish and European accents in general). All of the far away and exotic locations you've listed sounds amazing but, honestly, I'd really love to take a road trip through the states.

    ReplyDelete
  65. What gorgeous photos! Hmm... I think I'm partial to the first one. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. So I've been to half of your list...I would say my list is way to long to narrow it down to 10. My husband and I have been hiking in the Swiss Alps twice. We just took our now 2 year old this past Sept. I'd like to take him to Ireland and Scotland since he's never been. We are going to Japan in Sept/Oct 2013 (my bro lives there so might as well take advantage while we can). On my list I think St. Petersburg/Moscow is pretty high up there. Also Nepal, Northern India, Thailand, Australia, Prague, Budapest, Paris, Curacoa (Netherlands Antilles). Tahiti, Fuji. I can go on. I also need to hit Hawaii, West Virginia and South Carolina to have been in all 50 states.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Interesting selection and astounding pictures... I lived in New Zealand for almost two years but never crossed the "pond" to Australia. That was silly. I look forward to your next selection.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Thanks for visiting my blog! I love your choices! I've been to Yellowstone but the others are wonderful to dream about. Hope you make it to all of them!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Thanks for visiting my blog! I love your choices! I've been to Yellowstone but the others are wonderful to dream about. Hope you make it to all of them!

  70. My dream visit would be to New Zealand! I have dreamed of it for years, studying all I can of the islands.

    ReplyDelete
  71. What a FABULOUS idea for a post! I love this. I've only been to London and Yellow Stone on your list--both of which are cool! Scotland is definitely on my wish list... and my favorite places I've been? Are Nova Scotia, Iceland, and Latvia... hidden treasures! :D

    ReplyDelete
  72. Absolutely awesome post, love and photos and I really agree with your choices. The only thing I would change on this list is London...to Kent, as my grandparents were born in Kent and I have never had the opportunity to see it. Thank you so much for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I really want to go to Norway. I've been to Finland and Sweden many times, but I've never been to Norway.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Can I tag along? I'd love to see all of those, even Yellow Stone again. There's a waterfall I want to hike to.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Addicted to travel and fascinated by humans--want to go to all of the above, but add Asia (love and have been to China) and Italy and Spain and a bunch of South America, and so on...

    ReplyDelete
  76. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Prague is wonderful. I went in December - very cold, but no snow. I was, however, 7 months pregnant so I didn't get to enjoy the night life too much, I was asleep by 8pm every evening :-(

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hi! I'm Nadezda, thank you for stopping by my blog.
    I loved your dream, all the places you want to visit are interesting. I've been to Prague, lived in a center of the city and could see and walk around. I liked the Alpine air- is very clean and transparent and liked Alpine houses, with large balconies and flowers on them.

    ReplyDelete
  78. You need to get over to Europe and do a tour of at least there, the places you want to visit are nice. You should add Amsterdam to your list, it's very scenic and a lovely place to visit in the summer months (winter like now it's freezing and dark). Good luck on getting to them - positivity? Are you working towards it?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Bora Bora has been on the top of my list for many years, it just looks like the most amazing place in the world! Greece is fantastic, I have been 10 times to different places and I absolutely love it. The best thing with Australia is the variety in nature, worst thing all the snakes, spiders and bugs :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. I too want to visit London some day!!! It's been a dream of mine for years - along with touring Italy.

    I've been to Yellowstone twice, and it is absolutely beautiful. Inspiring. You feel like you can breathe there.

    Great post & thanks for sharing it!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Ireland, London, been to Spain and Florida- Paris - Anywhere that has emerald lakes and seas but mostly I'd love to see heaven :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. London and The Swiss Alps are the only ones here I have visited. The rest, like you, I would love to see - and would go back to the Swiss Alps as many times as you like! An excellent selection.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I can definitely recommend Ireland (Dunluce Castle is beautiful and also check out the Giant's causeway!) and Victoria Falls. i've always wanted to go to Prague too...

    ReplyDelete
  84. I've been to a couple of places that you mentioned and my favorite was the Alps. It was absolutely beautiful. I'd love to visit Bora Bora too. Beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. These pictures... wow. Just wow. It makes me want to pack up my bags right now! I really enjoy hiking and camping, so Yellowstone has been at the top of my list for a while now. I think I'd add Denali and El Yunque to that list.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I totally want to visit the UK and spend like, a month there. Costa Rica looks incredible too. Yellow Stone is one of my favorite places in the western US. Good choices!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I saw the pictures and fell in love with Yellowstone National Park. It is absolutely breathtaking.

    ReplyDelete
  88. From the beautiful photos, I want to visit or re-visit your top ten also! The connectdness of the internet feeds my wanderlust and capabilities to travel. After reading your post I feel lighter, thank you my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I've been to Yellowstone several times. Beautiful. Scotland remains a dream destination.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Oh you can sign me up for all those!! I've never been to either of them and I never heard of Victoria Falls before! HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS!! My god, that's like breathtaking! High up on my wanderlust list is Prague...all those bridges...wow! I also one day want to see New Zealand and Fiji! When i was younger I watched too much Hercules and Xena which was filmed in New Zealand and fell in love. Also the Lord of the Rings movies did not help my fascination with New Zealand...it just made it stronger!!

    As always thank you for the lovely comments! =)

    ReplyDelete
  91. Hi Keith - well that generated a few comments!! I'm lucky I've been to a few of those places ... London (quite often and I lived there!!), Africa and Victoria Falls, Prague in the Iron Curtain days, Greece in my youth .. and others ... but I need to see many of them again - so much to see ...

    Good luck and I'm sure you'll get to a few - see you in London sometime?! Cheers Hilary

    ReplyDelete
  92. i am happy to say i've been to London and Greece! Australia has been on my list for decades! and we took the kids to the grand canyon over yellowstone two years ago. ooo, must add bora bora!

    gorgeous shots!

    ReplyDelete
  93. We just had this conversation here the other day. Several of your locations were mentioned as places we wanted to go too. Beautiful list. I hope you make to each and every place.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Thanks a great list. We've been to Yellowstone and to Ireland. Leaving the Emerald Isle was like leaving home. It's amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Very nice list. Ireland is at the very top of mine, followed by Hawaii and Australia.

    ReplyDelete
  96. When you get a chance to make it to all of those wonderful places, you'll have to share your stories. Traveling is not big on my list- but I love, love to hear others adventures!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Greece is my number one! Your list is awesome!

  101. Would love to visit these places too. Although we have been to Yellowstone and it was wonderful. Grand Teton National Park is nice as well.

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog yesterday. It's great to meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Keith,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! The places you'd like to visit all look amazing, although I can only speak for Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, and Badlands national park.

    I only had two weeks to visit all those places--I'd rather have had two months!

    For more pictures of my trip, just follow this link. I'll be blogging about it for a while yet.

  104. Lovely places to visit - that last one looks gorgeous! Personally, I'd love to go see London again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  105. Those photos are beautiful, and make me wish I could visit them too. My favourite is the one of Prague. That image has captivated me! And it's a place I've never thought of visiting before.
    Unfortunately I don't know that I'll ever get there due to circumstances, but I never say never! :)

  106. Top of my list are Japan and the USA! Two places I have wanted to visit for many many years and hope to one day! :)

  107. Ah Keith,

    Had to do some serious scrolling to get to the part where I can actually leave a comment. And no, not jealous at all. *cough* *cough* :)

    Right then, some great choices and not wishing to um Bora Bora you, I was born in London, raised in Vancouver, Canada and now I live in some place named Leek in England because I had this incredible urge to live in a place named after an onion....

    ReplyDelete
  108. A very impressive list. I do hope you get to see each and every one. I want to see the Northern Lights in Alaska.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I'm with you on Australia. Perhaps New Zealand, as well.

    ReplyDelete
  110. So beautiful Keith - I would love to go to any of these!

    ReplyDelete
  111. There's nothing on the list that i found boring..all are exceptional destination to visit...

    ReplyDelete
  112. I've been to Australia and London, loved both. Feel like I should have been to Vic Falls since it's so close to me. My dream: PARIS :)
    Greece and Vatican City are also on my list.

    ReplyDelete
  113. What a great list! Similar to mine! That picture of the Swiss Alps sold me, I think that is my dream place! I have been to Italy several times and LOVE it there, I can't wait to go back one day!

  114. The Swiss Alps is definitely on my list too. I would be delighted to visit all of the places you have shared. I am grateful to live in Australia and so have visited Sydney, the Great Barrier Reef and much more....

  115. What can I do but say that I totally loved you post? I live in London and it's truly a magical city (not just at Christmas, mind! :-D), I've always wanted to visit Ireland. I'm strongly attracted to Irish culture. I'm reading Milan Kundera at the moment, so therefore I'm in Prague in my mind and there ar eso many nations in Africa I would love to visit that I don't know where to start. Many thanks that was beautiful.

    Greetings from London.

  119. I've been to London and Yellowstone (actually am taking my kids to Yellowstone next summer) but the rest of those places look like AWESOME places to go (and about 6 of 8 of them would have been on my own independently generated list--I'd add Morocco and Rio de Janiero, I think)

    ReplyDelete
  120. there's so many nice places to go, i'd take a holiday to any of these destinations! though, in my opinion, london is much lovelier during summer rather than christmastime:-) x

    ReplyDelete
  121. Those look like incredible places!
    Bora Bora has been my dream destination for a little while now as well. It looks amazing!
    I hope you visit them all :)

  122. You have chosen some awesome places to visit. I hope you can see each one of them.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  123. I LOVE that you posted pictures of all your places:) I want to go to all of yours places even though I've already been to London, Greece, and Ireland.

    In London, I perfected my peacock imitation. They cry, "Mow!" (rhymes with cow, not like mow the grass) The water in Greece is such a gorgeous BLUE and the food is divine but not expensive. The Irish sheep with the wool long enough to touch the grass are really great and believe me, Guinness Stout tastes way better over there than here!

    I'd also like to go to the Seychelles Islands. Once upon a time a gal on an airline reservation line told me that is the most beautiful place in the world.

  124. NORTHERN IRELAND!! Why that's where I live and Dunluce Castle is just on up the road, how funny that you dream of visiting it :) I feel all proud now. May I just say Carrickfergus Castle is also fantabulous ;)
    I would like to visit everywhere I haven't been yet - how's that for an answer.
    My friends live in the Swiss Alps but we haven't managed to get over yet - it does seem beautiful and yep London ROCKS!

    So glad you popped over to my blog today x

  126. I would love to go to England, Scotland, and Ireland. The Bahamas, Key West, Florida, Nova Scotia, oh so many places!

    ReplyDelete
  127. I have been to one of those! Yellowstone was only a couple hours from where I grew up so we spent about every summer there

    ReplyDelete
  128. LOL! I love this! :D Why? you may ask... Because I too would love to travel to such exotic places. Thus far I have only been in the tiny part of the globe in which I was born and reside. However - I HAVE been to ONE of these places which you mentioned... Yellowstone. Yes. I was there as a child and LOVED it! :) My family and I camped in a camping trailer. I remember well looking out our open camper door early one morning and seeing a cub play just a foot from our door. When we kids told our parents the door quickly closed; where there is a cub there will soon be a mama bear! We then heard the announcement boadcast for all campers stay in their campers - for there was a family of bears on grounds. You don't say? ;) All was well, no one hurt - and oh what an adventure! :D
    I wish you the best of luck on all your many adventures!
    Corine :D

  129. Take me! Take me! Beautiful wish list! If I could go anywhere it would be Ireland and Scotland, the lands of my ancestors. Hope your weekend is wonderful! xx

  130. Holy smokes, Keith!! 141 comments. Your blog is on fire!
    Been to many of your special places, actually. I've gotta get myself to Dubai. And Charleston. One of these days....

  131. I would gladly go to any one of those places.

  133. I've lost a lot of my enthusiasm for travel as I get older. I've been to London and actually enjoyed a trip out of the city to the Cotswolds more than the city itself. Shakespeare's home town was a treat!

    ReplyDelete
  134. Thats a good list. Maybe add Southern Tasmania to your Australia list - and remove London but add most of the north of England!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne.

    PS: sorry for slow reply - I been out of internet range in Tasmania!

  138. Well, I like all of the above, obviously Ireland like! :) I love New Zealand and Italy too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  139. Great choices!! I have wanted to visit Victoria Falls for awhile, too. I've also been interested in visiting Santorini, Florence, Rome and Ireland. When I was younger my family hosted an exchange student from Japan so Japan is the first country that I decided that I wanted to visit. Also, my best friend is Vietnamese so I would love to go there with her one day. We've had multiple trips planned but for one reason or another they haven't worked out. Lately I have had a strong desire to go Norway (during the best time to see the northern lights), Finland (part of my heritage) and Iceland. And Antarctica.

  140. I'm definitely inspired to write my own list of places to visit... what a wonderful thing to sit and think about, especially for someone who has barely traveled half way across her home country.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Such a great list of places that I would love to visit! I've been to London - definitely a place to see. My sister and I decided to pick a random place to go at the end of this year, we've chose Portugal. I've heard it's a hidden gem!

  142. I would love to visit Ireland. I also want to visit a tropical island, like Maui.

  143. Costa Rica has always been on my list too.

  144. The United States is high on my list, both for the landscapes and the nice people.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Some wonderful places there. I had the opportunity to visit Prague a number of years ago - perhaps the most beautiful city I've ever had the pleasure to visit. If you want to see the Barrier Reef, be quick - its dying.
    Places I want to visit: Maccu Pichu is on the top of my list, ever since I was a kid and learned of the Incas. Other places; anywhere in the world were friends live.
