Today’s BEDM is about Travel Dreams. “If you could go anywhere in the world right now where would it be?” As I begin to write this blog post from the comfort of my work office, on a dreary industrial estate in Lincoln – I would honestly rather be anywhere but here. In fact, there aren’t many placed in the world that I wouldn’t like to go.
I’ve been very lucky in my life, in that I’ve managed to visit many different countries. I have been to Wales, Scotland, Ireland and of course England, within the United Kingdom. I’ve been to France, Spain, Menorca, Majorca, Gibraltar, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and Turkey. I’ve even managed to make it over to New York, USA once. There are of course, thousands more places to go and if offered a free holiday to any of them, I would definitely go – providing I could take the kids (or find someone to look after them while I went) and so long as I had at least a little spending money!
However there are 3 specific places that spring to mind when I think of places I’d like to visit.
Paris is my most achievable. In fact I’ve technically been through Paris on two occasions. But I’d like to go and actually stay in Paris itself, do the romance and tourist type thing, preferably with someone special. I have this whole proposal/unproposal thing which maybe one day I’ll share with you. That takes place at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower, hopefully one day soon.
One of the main reasons I have always wanted to go to Florida (in fact only reason for a long time) was Disney World. I would love, love, love to go there – with or without my kids to be honest. Its incredibly expensive to get there however and even more so now that I have children. However there is one other reason I would like to go to Florida now –
Harry Potter at Universal Studios. I am a huge huge Harry Potter fan and have wanted to visit the “real” Hogwarts for years. Now with news of an expansion plan, I’d like to go more than ever. Someone give me about £10,000 and I’d be on a plane tomorrow.
Las Vegas, USA
Ever since reading “Diva Las Vegas” I have wanted to go to Las Vegas. Again its another place that I’d love to have a whole stink pile of money before visiting. I’ve told my current partner that if ever I was going to get married again, it would have to be here. I joked with my brother he should always keep £500 on a credit card in reserve, on the off chance we just drop everything and go!
So those are my main places, but like I said, I’d go anywhere given the chance. Bottom of my choice however would probably be places like Africa, Egypt or even Russia.
