The Daily Post: Three countries

1 01 2011

Over 2011 WordPress has set a challenge to blog more. I’m sure I won’t but I thought I may as well give it a go. Their suggestions are to blog daily or weekly, or just more than you currently do, so I’m just going to pick and choose as and when I have the time and something to say on the subject!

1st January
List three countries you’d like to visit, and why you want to go.
This will probably end up pretty similar to my previous post, but as I consider where I might go on holiday this year (or in the future when I could hypothetically afford to travel a little more), here are some of those on my list:

  • Italy
    I’ve wanted to go here for a while now. A little warmer than here (and apparently very warm in the summer 🙂 ), and I’m a fan of Italian food, this is definitely on my list. On top of which, I should be able to get a plane (it’s not *too* far, I might just cope!) or a train or even drive (when I can!), and it wouldn’t cost a complete fortune. My parents went to Italy this year, or I suppose last year now! and mum keeps telling me how much I’d like it. Definitely on the list.
  • Australia/New Zealand
    I’m going to put these 2 into one as once you’re on the other side of the planet you may as well make the most of it and multi task! Again this is a weather related thing. I’ve been told of just shocking temperatures in Oz which sounded awesome when it was -9C here! Equally there’s no language barrier with these places (I speak zero Italian!) and so I imagine it could just be like a hot Britain! New Zealand is supposed to be beautiful, and there’s some pretty iconic things to see in Australia.
  • America
    It’s hard to know where to start with this one. Such a diverse country, so much to see. This and Down Under are both going to have to wait til I have a bit more cash in the bank, and can either get over my fear of flying or find an alternative, but there’s so much I want to see over the pond. New York definitely, probably Florida, California, and all the stuff in between!

Maybe a round the world Cruise is in order!
