The library holds an under-utilized treasure, oversize books. I visited the library and pulled many of those big, unvisited, neglected books from their shelves and spread them over a table. I was greeted with stunning photographs of beautiful places. The photos reached out and grabbed my curiosity. I was compelled to compile a fantasy travel list. Who knows? Someday two or three of us may meet in person. Visit your local library. Set your dreams in motion.
Atlantic Beach- the sun sets over the Atlantic Ocean
Badlands- because they are bad
Canada-a dear neighbor with vast stretches of wilderness
Daintree Rainforest, Australia- oldest rainforest on the planet
Easter Islands- must see those big heads
Fiordland National Park- waterfalls
Galapagos Islands- crazy critters
Hobbiton- Tolkien’s world comes alive.
Ireland- Doesn’t everyone wish to be Irish?
Jura, Isle of- Scotland’s last wilderness, and it’s SCOTLAND.
Kauai- complete enchantment of the senses
Louvre Museum- Hell, it’s the Louvre and in Paris.
Mammoth Cave, KY- could be another planet
New Zealand- Just because its New Zealand home to way cool everything and it’s where Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit were filmed.
Old Head of Kinsale, Ireland- Golf course where I might run into Graeme McDowell and I can ask why I didn’t win a round of golf with him and he can make good and I’ll buy the pints.
Pebble Beach Golf course- A great place to beat the winter blues and to practice for all the overseas courses, I must also keep the hubby happy if I’m dragging him around the world.
Queenstown- because it’s in New Zealand
Redwood National Park- big ass trees
Stonehenge- same strange draw as the big heads on Easter Island
Turnberry Ailsa golf course, Scotland- You can still have a good day with a bad game.
Underwater view of the Great Barrier Reef- before humanity destroys it
Vineyards in Vermont- Where else would you spend the fall season?
Wairarapa- north of Wellington with a stop at the Waiohine Gorge- everything you could want- adventure, art, cycling, fishing, golf, gardens, surfing, wine, and their own Stonehenge
Xativa Castle, Spain- Where better to visit a castle?
Yellow submarine tropical cocktail on a dock in Key West at sunset
Zip line Costa Rica’s Rainforest- Why not?
I encouragement you to compile your fantasy bucket list with a trip to the library. Enjoy an adventure, far or near. Just go.
