Where I Would Go...

The latest post over at Mother. Write. (Repeat.) kick-started my brain into thinking about the places I want to visit someday before my knees need replacing.

El Camino del Rey in Andalucia, Spain. Yes, really.

The American Museum of Natural History.

The world's underground cities--modern and old--including the catacombs in Rome.


Then to Africa to thaw out; I want to see big cats in the wild. Resisting the urge to write LOLcat captions for them won't be easy, but I do like a challenge.

Victoria Falls, especially the Devil's Pool.

Provence and Tuscany--for the scenery and good eats.

The Richat Structure.

The Lechuguilla Cave in New Mexico.

Some place unexplored thus far.

My favorite places in fiction.

My places in fiction. Like me, my main characters tend to be explorers and adventurers or they're pushed to undertake some physical journey. I gave the planet a fat lip and some broken bones in THE BONE JAR and now I'm rebuilding it somewhat askew for my WIP. So, yeah, I'd love to walk that world for a bit, just to check things out.

Where would you go if money and time were not an option, and you weren't in immediate need of a hip replacement?


  1. I would go everywhere. I mean it. Everywhere. Including places of make believe.

    Missed you around here!

  2. *Waves*

    Everywhere sounds GREAT to me.

  3. Take the Trans-Siberian Express, or Tibet.

  4. Oooh, that sounds like a terrific trip!

  5. I was lucky enough to live in Mallorca and to visit Barcelona, Algeria and Mexico's Sierra Madre region, but I'd love to go to New Zealand and the northern regions of Britain and Scotland and Ireland.

  6. Oh how fantastic! I am totally envious!

    I was born in NZ and spent the first 11 years of my life there. It really is some beautiful country. Well worth it.
