On the way to Korea, our plane kissed the edge of Hudson Bay from some 30,000 feet. I have long wanted to visit Hudson Bay. This is as close as I have come.
The flyover got me thinking. If I had unlimited resources, what places would I most like to visit?
I would like to return to a number of places, including the Republic of Korea now. But for this list, I focused on places I have never seen – places I would some day like to go.
I made the list as the places occurred to me. I reduced the list to ten and then I put them in a priority order, although I think that order might change on any given day.
Some places are quite specific. Some are very broad. My list. My rules.
- New Zealand
- Glacier National Park
- Hudson Bay, Montreal, Quebec City
- Rhode Island
- Victoria Falls
- The Great Wall of China
- Machu Picchu
- Shiloh National Battlefield
- A Norwegian fjord
That’s my list. This time. What is yours?
Limiting the list to ten proved more of a challenge than I had expected. Many other places occurred to me but simply did not make the final cut. This time.
Some of these places I will never visit. Too old. Too out-of-shape. Not enough money. Others I may. I may go to some of the places that did not make the list of ten. I may get to places I did not name that prove more interesting than anything on the list. That is the beauty of the Trail. When we set out upon it, we do not know where it will lead.
