Top 10 Travel Wishlist

Postby ballu » Mon Sep 28, 2009 7:17 pm

For my own amusement, back in 2002 I started a "Top 10 Travel Wishlist"'s just on a loose piece of paper that I tend to stumble upon while looking for something else about once a year. When I do, I update it because over time my interests change and sometimes I am fortunate enough to actually cross a few destinations off the list so...

What's your "Top 10 Travel Wishlist"?

Mine, for now...

1. Bolivia
2. Easter Island
3. India
4. Trans Mongolian Railroad
5. Antarctica
6. Torres Del Paine & Patagonia
7. Ghana, Benin & Togo
8. Fiji/Bora Bora (I really want just one night in one of those cabins on the crystal clear blue water)
9. Turkey
10. Iceland

I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list

If you never get lost, you never get found

Mine also change (ooooo especially since I've been able to cross some off :D ) but here goes as of today:

1. Everest Base Camp
2. Serengeti
3. Gorilla trek in Uganda/Rwanda
4. Angkor Wat
5. Antarctica
6. Ecuador jungle
7. Galapagos
8. Floe edge in Canada's arctic (saw the arctic this year but was too far inland to see polar bears, narwhales, or belugas)
9. Active volcano anywhere
10. Kilimanjaro summit

I have to 52 I'm running out of time. Although, a bigger problem is that every time I cross one off I browse the forum here and find 6 more to add on...darn you all anyway!
I really must stop using the forum as the home page for my web browser! :lol:
If I don't see it I can't add it! :wink:
I will never let my dreams just be dreams.

Proximity has a lot to do with my list these days. There are a lot of places within easy striking distance of Ecuador that I want to visit.

1. Galapagos
2. Inca Trail
3. Iguassu Falls
4. Madagascar
5. Lost World
6. Kenya/Tanzania
7. Bali
8. Egypt
9. Honduras
10. Colombia

I know what you mean about the ever-changing list, thecakeisalie. Mine changes every time I look
at someone's travel photos on this site! A recent post of pics of Bali put it on my most current list.

Our list we drew up 10 years has been completed.
But we now have a new list.
Altai Republic/Sakha/Buryatia
South Africa...again
Yemen,and their isle of Socotra
ooops that's 12, but we dream a lot.
By the time we get anywhere near completing that list, we might just be so old we go join our friends on their Pacific cruises....and be bored silly!
Our passion for travel is rivaled only by our commitment to those we serve

1. India
2. Botswana & Namibia
3. Indonesia & Bali
4. Vietnam
5. Antarctica & Patagonia
6. Jordan
7. Mongolia
8. Nepal
9. New Zealand
10. Greenland & the Arctic Circle

Desiree, who needs to die rich? Can't take money with you to the grave anyway.
