I’ve been thinking a bit about holidays recently. Sitting at a reception desk all day long makes you want to travel. To compile my own list I used the Top 50 must see places on the Getaway website.. (who knew that website would actually come in handy one day).
I used to always want to be a Getaway lady when I was older. Truth be told, I think I would still do it. Dad tried to tell me that it probably isn’t as fun as it seems, but I used to say that it would be more fun than going to school everyday. I guess if we were to have that conversation now I would say that it would be more fun than going to school, but school would be more fun than having a full time job.
Here’s my list of places to see (in no particular order)
1. Canadian Rockies
I’m reading a book series set in the Canadian Rockies, so this is why I’d like to go there. Also cos it’s beautiful.
2. The Amazon
It’s the second largest river in the world or something. I read a book about the Amazon when I was little.. and while apparently I’ll be eaten alive by all sorts of things, I still want to go.
4. Ice Hotel in Sweden
Well who wouldn’t want to go to Sweden? But this would definitaley make it onto my list.
5. St Petersburg – anyone seen Anastasia? It looks pretty cool in the cartoon..
6. The Great Wall of China
I want to go to Rome for fairly obvious reasons.
I want to go to London for fairly obvious reasons.
10. The Maldives
12. Pyramids of Giza
A couple of years ago you couldn’t have convinced me to go to Egypt. I actually hate sand. But I have a fairly decent sized craving to go there. So much history, maybe half the books I read are set in Egypt. Okay, not half, but a big chunk.
13. New York
I dont’ really care how cliche Paris is. I still want to go there.
And yes, I realise that I want to go to these places because of books. The travel industry should really give more credit to authors.
