I have many places.I've always wanted and still do want to live in Alaska.
Their permanent darkness period would do me in, but I could live in Oeschninsee, Switzerland FOREVER!
I could just stay in the ski lodge during the winter - and revel in the beauty in the other three seasons. The night picture doesn't do it justice - you can see a bazillion stars - literally. Magical!
Always, always, always Paris. It is magical
susan.m I was lucky enough to go there with my mother in 1995, she was brought up there, born in Marseilles, brought up in Paris. To see her native city and country through her eyes was the most amazing experience ever. She had told me over and over and over again when I was growing up how much better some things were in France. After we had been there for a couple of days, I humbly admitted that she was right. My youngest daughter is fluent in French, I lost my fluency because I did not use it. My mother would have been thrilled to talk to her granddaughter. She did a semester abroad and went to Paris and took classes at the Sorbonne. Sigh.
How awesome is that
Ellen, that's wonderful. Her France, her Marseilles must have been a sight to see. Whatever 'it' is about that country, I certainly get it. I've always thought that I could happpily live in rural France.
How fortunate for your daughter! Mine just returned from Amsterdam. We considered Paris, but we were concerned about security. Such a sad thing.
I've been fortunate enough to spend time in various counties in Europe, but there's something about that moment when the pilot calls for the final approach into Charles de Gaulle..... I just.... react to Paris. I feel the beauty and the energy of that city when I'm there.
It is a beautiful city, I was just amazed with the sites...all over the place, I loved all of it. My parents met in Nice during the war, my father was stationed in France and was on vacation at the same time that my aunt and my mother were vacationing...serendipitous. My aunt's boyfriend was my father's best friend and they both ended up as married couples in the U.S. It's a lovely place, I think I would want to live in the city because everything is there...the metro is so efficient. I would not go there right now either because of security concerns. It IS sad, terribly sad.
Me? I would love to go back, for a few months and live on the prairie, in horse and buggy days, with no electricity no running water, no gas, no technology! Always has been an interest of mine!
I'd love to get back out to Western Canada to see the Rockie Mountains one more time that's the only thing on my bucket list at this time.
Alaska! Went on a cruise last summer and fell in love..... Not signing up for winters though, just one beautiful summer ;-)
I've wanted to live there all my life. I have a school chum, who lives there and insists I come. She says it isn't for everyone," however her family loves it.
Hubby says NO! He doesn't like winter but hes always playing in it? My tolerance isn't as good as it used too be. I can say a few dark winter weeks doesn't bother me. There summer is beautiful and short, depending where. It sounds so heavenly to me, for so many reasons. Oh well, Ya just never know where life will take you
I don't know if I will be able to go this year, but I will get to Scotland eventually. I am going to meet my highlander and disappear into the forest. (And live a happily smoke free life...The End)
I have a friend who lives in Scotland! I would also like to visit there someday.
(And meet the Highlander LOL)
I'll ask if he has a brother (LOL)
I would love to go to England to meet my husband's Aunt, Uncle and cousins. I'd love to see the places he lived too.
My dream would be Israel. It is just THE most amazing country, people, sights, progress, hard work...I don't have enough words to describe it. I would love to go back.
I met beloved there on the beach in front of the Dan Hotel in Tel Aviv on Yom Kippur many decades ago. Being Yom Kippur, no touring around was allowed – just a free day for all of us – the day I met my husband while swimming/playing around in the Mediterranean.
He was working there on a 2 year contract out from England at the Israeli Aircraft Industry. I was there as group tour leader for the “11 day Holyland Holiday” for some really elderly people who were probably younger then than I am now!
Anyway, before I write a brochure let me just say – such a special country.
Bree19 What a lovely story...go ahead...write that brochure!
