on the next adventure.

hawaii.
i was talking to my mom last night and she had just finished looking at an "about me" book i made in second grade, at the age of seven. it had all sorts of fun facts in it, including the answer to the question: what two places do you want to go to the most?
answer:
hawaii and korea.
um...what? korea? where the hell do kids come up with this shit? what in god's name did i know about korea at the age of 7? i can understand hawaii - it's super pretty, part of america (which means i'm familiar with it), and my dad had just gone on a trip there. korea is one i can't quite figure out.
but as of today, if i could go somewhere with money/time/safety not being an issue, it would be...
egypt.
egypt fascinates me, particularly ancient egypt. i would love to go and see the history of this country. explore cairo, sail down the nile, learn more about cleopatra in alexandria. it would be amazing.
so what about you? if there was one place you could go to today, where would it be?

  8. I'm with you on Egypt! It's definitely on the bucket list, along with Venice (the ONE part of Italy that we missed, and my dream since I was little), Machu Picchu, Spain, Niagra Falls, the Grand Canyon, Greece, etc. etc.

    And of course back to Ireland.

    *Sigh*

  9. Love this post. It makes me laugh. What little kid didn't want to go to Hawaii?? It is up there with Disney World. But Korea, yeah, where did that come from? Tell us more about your fascination with Egypt.

  10. shannon - well it started with cleopatra - how does a society have such a powerful woman (who's grave we can't find) ruling it, yet now represses women so much. and how did they build the pyramids, etc. a lot of these answers were destroyed when the romans invaded egypt and basically raided it and destroyed so many things. so all these questions i have about their society really fascinate me, and i'd love to see a lot of these things i think about in person. it's just so cool! also, i'm a nerd.

  11. I had one of those About Me books - I'll have to see what I wrote down.

    I would definitely choose Paris. It's been a lifelong dream to go there!

  17. Egypt is a good answer! I think Italy is towards the top of my list, and Greece, too. If I were to push my comfort zone and travel somewhere besides Europe, I would love to go to Asia. Maybe Japan? Just Asia in general for now :)
