Day 5: Five places to visit

This was a nice post to put together. A collage of places I would like to visit. Most of the pictures posted are from Google Images. You can click any picture to enlarge it. 

Day 5Five places I want to visit

1. Bora Bora

High school was a time of discovery for me. I paid attention to how fellow students talk, act and dream. Again, I wanted to fit in. I made a few friends and one of the girls was talking about always wanting to go to Bora Bora. I knew nothing of such a place. She showed me some pictures she had in her binder and together we started the “can you imagine” trail of possibilities. Bora Bora makes it at the top of my list and i really hope one day I can go and see it. I mean, wouldn’t you?

2. Australia

There’s something about kangaroos running ‘loose’ in the roads that I would like to experience.  I am part of a Facebook group of photographers from all over the world – a group formed of people taking a course and learning to use the camera in Manual mode. A group of fantastic people, very helpful, and very creative, and when a kangaroo picture pops up with a caption “in my backyard”, I always wish I was there!

3. Ireland

P.S. I love you movie brings me to tears every time I watch it. But it also inspired me to dream about visiting Ireland myself.

4. Dubai

Oh Dubai… Many years ago I’ve seen lots of pictures of the new tourist areas in Dubai and I had to add it on the list of places to visit in the future.

5. Egypt

Stories of the pharaohs and pyramids are the reason Egypt made the list.

 

*****

I wanted to add 3 recommendations of places I have visited and which left an imprint on my heart.

1. Romania 

Of course. I invite anyone who would like to discover the beauties of the country to check out the caves, the castles and monasteries, and The Transfagarasan highway ( known as the “Greatest driving road in the world” and it featured during an episode of Top GearFun fact: Unlike popular belief and misunderstanding, Romania is not a gypsy country – our ancestors were the Dacian and Romans. Also, Transylvania became famous all over the world for its stories of Count Dracula and Dracula Castle.

2. Kaieteur Falls, Guyana

Yes, I have Mitchell to thank for introducing me to Guyana, the land of many waters and the lost land of the jaguar. I had the absolute pleasure to visit the falls back in August 2012. Fun fact: Kaieteur Falls world’s widest single drop waterfall and it is about four times the height of Niagara Falls (Canada/US border) and about twice the height of  Victoria Falls (Zambia/Zimbabwe border).

3. Jamaica

A beautiful country on a beautiful island! And to think I thought Jamaica was in Africa (shameful!) – clearly I could not point it out on a map. Until I won a trip through a radio competition to go visit it. Mitchell did a lot of reading before we got there and found Carolyn from Barrett Adventures and booked a few private tours. Getting out of the resort with someone that knows the ins and outs of the island is the best way to spend your time there! We discovered a few gems and promised ourselves we will return! Fun Fact: Jamiaca has no monkeys!
