My #1 choice – Ireland. via

I’m linking up with Paige for this week’s Tuesday 10, and the theme is Top 10 Places You Want to Travel. Here are my top 10 dream destinations:

  1. Ireland. The whole thing, not just one particular spot/city. I’ve had a obsession fixation with the Emerald Isle for as long as I can remember, and have not yet made a journey to its shores. This needs to be remedied ASAP. There’s a reason I’m learning Gaelic.
  2. Italy. Particularly Rome and Venice, but again really all of it. I’ve been to Europe a handful of times, but sadly this has not yet been one of my stops. The art! The pasta! The Mediterranean! Plus, the boy is at least half Italian, so he needs to visit his ancestral homeland. 😉
  3. Greece. Birthplace of so many great ideas and myths. And have you seen those villages of whitewashed buildings nestled right on the shore of the Mediterranean? I’ll take a vacation home there, please.
  4. Fiji. It’s kind of just hanging out there in the vast Pacific, alone with its cool name. I don’t know, it’s just been on my list ever since I heard about it.
  5. Scotland. Cousin to Ireland in language, and home to great accents, kilts, and all sorts of crags and lochs.
  6. Turkey. It’s a part of the world I’ve never been to, with a great history all its own (Constantinople anyone?). Plus it’s both democratic AND secular, which I won’t fully believe until I see it (because, let’s face it, the government here hasn’t been secular since… well, ever).
  7. Egypt. To see the pyramids and the Nile.
  8. New Zealand. It’s beautiful (did you see Lord of the Rings?) and close to another favorite of mine, Australia.
  9. The Grand Canyon. I’ve flown over it a handful of times, but have never seen it at ground level.
  10. Hawaii. Tropical beaches and volcanoes, what more could you want?

Don’t forget these two things:
