A trip you want to take this year

For several years now, D and I have discussed taking a big trip for my 40th birthday. We’ve discussed all the mainstream locations: London, Paris, and the like. Mostly mainland Europe. But none of those places really appeal to me much. I’m not saying I wouldn’t go, because of course I would. It’s just that there are so many more interesting and exotic places I’d rather see. I’ve never been the girl who dreamed of going to Paris.

I want to go to Tokyo and eat exotic foods, sing karaoke, and go to an owl café. Oh and visit the island with all the cats.

I want to go to Peru, hike to Machu Picchu, and sleep under the stars.

I want to go to Fiji and stay in an over the water bungalow.

I want to spend the weekend at the Black Castle in Ireland, wearing medieval costumes, playing dungeons and dragons, and walking around with candelabras for light.

I want to tour South America and then board a cruise ship to Antarctica.

I want to go to Egypt and see the pyramids.

It may not end up being this year, but I plan to start crossing these trips off my list in the not too distant future.

One thought on “A trip you want to take this year

  1. I was going to do the Machu Pichu trip this y ear…I was going to go with Gadventures. I am just not up to long strenuous walks yet. Hopefully in 2020.
