Lesson number one when trying to write a blog series – always save your source material! In my last blog post, I linked to writing prompts but that blog is not currently accessible. I guess that means I’ll have to come up with my own “getting to know me” prompt!
Day 2 – List five places you want to visit.
Only five? I’ll list the first five that come to mind.
1 – Taipei, Taiwan. In 2015, my husband and I traveled to Taiwan to adopt our daughter. While there, we completely fell in love with the country. I plan to return to Taiwan and spend time exploring.
2 – Tokyo, Japan. The very first language I tackled independently was Japanese. I have a soft spot for the country and hope to visit.
3 – Prince Edward Island, Canada. In September, I’m headed to PEI with my best friend. I can’t wait to see the island that inspired one of my all time favorite book series!
4 – New York City. My husband and I have been married for almost 14 years and we’ve never taken a honeymoon. We plan to remedy that with a trip to NYC. I want to see Phantom of the Opera, visit The Met, and drink coffee from at least five local coffee shops. I’ve also read about an amazing place to eat macaroni and cheese.
5. Vancouver, B.C., Canada. I am hoping that Vancouver will be one of my first solo trips. I’ve discovered that Amtrak is an inexpensive way to travel from Seattle to Vancouver. Taking the train will allow me to explore Vancouver on foot and not have to worry about driving and figuring out where to park.
There we go. The first five travel destinations that came to mind. Where do you want to go?
Hello again. I have once been to Taipei -the transit area of the airport when en route from Tokyo to Auckland. Hope you get to Japan. I lived there for nine years and have been back many times since. It is fascinating and so very different. And how I envy you the trip to Prince Edward Island. I am a lover of Anne books and have read the series countless times. Indeed I have bought the whole series over at least three times as I give them away telling myself I am too old for these now but miss them so much. I once stitched an embroidered book based on an Anne of Green Gables alphabet and I don’t intend to part with that. All the best for your visits both planned and dreamed of.
I hope to go to the UK some day as I have been dreaming of t since I was 13. Care of my elderly dependant mother may mean this is on the never never list but dreams are free and the UK will always be there:-)
I have been almost nowhere outside Canada, but have been to PEI and of course Vancouver, which is practically in my backyard, if a backyard were 8 hours away. Anyway, I just wanted to say that Vancouver is beautifully walkable and accessible by public transit (Skytrain and bus). My kids only need a car when they’re moving furniture, and when I visit them I just park my car where I’m staying and don’t touch it again until I leave.
