Around The World


So now we are going to travel. The cat isn’t a fan of that. Well at least the cage part. Good thing he isn’t answering it. But as far as me. Hmmm. If I had money, no eating restrictions, there was no risk of getting shot and/or catching disease, where would I go? Right! The question first.

โ€œOf all the places in the world that you havenโ€™t yet been to, where would you like to go next?โ€

Haven’t been yet? Been to NY and that is it. So lots of places to go. Not one for traveling, as you can guess, though. As it isn’t cheap and all the crap stated already.

If it is a place where you have a high risk of getting shot or you need a shot(s) to go to, no way what so ever. I can look at things on the internet if I’m that inclined to.

Next may be a far far far ways off at my sea, if ever, but now that my little rant is out of the way, where would I go?

Hmm as the Blue Guy says Bora Bora sounds nice, but it costs a ton, far away, isolated and has wild mutts roaming every which way. So nah.

I’ll go with Hawaii I guess. But then sitting on a beach after a little while would get boring to me. So who knows there. I think it would be neat to take a summer and drive across the country and then through the US and back up again. But one needs to be rich and/or retired for that.

Guess I’m just fine where I am. The world is small enough now with the internet and such that you can see what you like for cheap. Plus the viruses you can get from the internet are way easier on your body. Like to travel where you are? Where to next at your sand bar?

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

Hawaii sounds nice, and you probably wouldn’t have to just sit on the beach the whole time. You could take up hula dancing ๐Ÿ™‚

I went to Hawaii (Maui and Kauai) for my honeymoon and spent almost no time on the beach. We went hiking, took some tours, and swam in the hotel pools. Kauai is overrun with feral cats, so you could make lots of new friends. But the time it takes to get there is painful. Planes are big cages, aren’t they?

    Good to know there is lots to do and yeah, they sure are bird cages.

I had wished I could’ve gone to Hawaii while writing Tsunami Crimes, but I made do with research and images. *sigh*

    Hey, at least you got to live vicariously through the research and images

I’m not getting any shots either! That wipes out most of South America. And Africa.
There’s a lot to see across this country. Maybe one day you’ll pack up the cats for a road trip in a small motor home.

    They would hate that, but be fun to do though. Yeah, screw the stupid shots.

Hawaii is a place I would like to see someday too. I’m sure there’s more to see than the beach!

    Yeah, more than the beach is good indeed

I’m not a big fan of going to the beach so Hawaii doesn’t have a huge appeal for me since you have to fly or take a boat to get there. A drive across country is something I love to do. And it can be pretty economical if gas prices are right. If you have people you can stay with along the way then it can be very economical.

    There are sites for that out there. Although you may end up staying with a serial killer, so best to avoid them.

Yes you could inadvertently end up staying with a serial killer, but on the other hand you could stay and home and end up getting murdered by a serial killer. I don’t have the statistics to substantiate it, but my guess is that most murders occur either in one’s own home or near one’s zone of familiarity. I believe most fatal car accidents occur close to home as well.

Pat, you might be much safer taking that cross-country road trip.

    haha that is true. But then for most car accidents being near home it is simply because that is where you drive the most. So that’s just a higher percentage of it happening there. As for the psychos, yeah, just as likely.

Went to Hawaii once and there is lots to do but it’s very, very expensive. I would like to see more of North America but like you, every thing costs so much. I like to see places that aren’t cities or even towns. Give me the wilds.

    The wilds would be interesting if you won’t catch something or get eaten lol

I can’t go international until I can’t donate blood anymore, so I’ll enjoy some new places and lots of old places right here in the good old US of A, like The Wave, San Rafael Swell and the Olympic Peninsula. One day, though, I hope to bike across New Zealand and take pictures in Scandinavia, Japan and Australia. Oooooooh! It will be SO exciting!

    Sure you’ll get tons of great shots no matter where you go.

Hawaii is on many bucket lists, including mine. Road tripping across North America would fabulous if you have the money and time. Those luxury RVs look comfortable. ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice to dream about.

    Yep, you’d surely need the money, time and a luxury rv haha

I guess some people like to travel, and some prefer to stay at home. It’s a good thing, really, or we’d never meet any genuine locals when we go travelling! And these days, you get a really good view of things without the discomfort. There’s been a wonderful series on the BBC about the Silk Road from China to Turkey. I always wanted to go to Samarkand – but now I’m happy to have seen the show, without the heat and the sand ๐Ÿ™‚
Have fun, whatever you do.

    That is true, there would should be no locals if all traveled. Shows like that make for easy travel indeed.
