Today was a beautiful day. A slow, lazy day...time to think, and read, and then dinner out with friends. I was thinking today about travelling, and all those journeys you dream of making one day. My dream destinations change from time to time. For the last while I have had a dream of taking a train journey on the Orient Express. I imagine stepping into a bygone age of elegance and luxury with a cast of passengers like something out of an Agatha Christie film - without the murders of course. Travelling through exotic places, Istanbul, Prague, Budapest.
My second dream destination would be to travel through all the Scandinavian countries including Iceland and Greenland, to see the northern lights and to be able to stay for at least one night in an igloo. My third dream destination would be to take a road trip through the USA, to visit small towns and large - definitely on the agenda New York, LA, the deep south, the Carolina barrier islands and Miami. The ideal road trip for me would be to have LOTS of time on my hands, to have an eventual destination in mind, say East Coast to West Coast, but to have no definite timetable.
What is your dream destination or holiday? I'd love to hear.
And then all I need is a little fairy dust to help my dreams come true.
