If you could go anywhere…

Carrie of Careful Cents recently asked:  If you could get a free ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go?

If it were up to me, right now I’d probably pick a nice leisurely cruise over anything else (cruising is still sitting pretty on my Life List) but here are some of the places that would be my top picks:


Tapas. Architecture. Sunshine. I’ll get there one day! And it would be a crime to not pop over to Portugal while out that way…


Okay, so I hear it’s a lot like Auckland but that hasn’t put me off wanting to visit – plus it’d be a great excuse to explore more of the Pacific Northwest at the same time (Seattle! Portland! etc)

Hong Kong

Markets, shopping, street food! Hit me with it all. And while I have no interest in gambling, I do want to visit Macau for Macanese cuisine and taste the Portuguese influence.

Gold Coast

Before I get too old to enjoy theme parks (or is it already too late?)


To visit a friend who lives there and explore what is by all accounts a very cool and colourful city!

    Australia and NZ would be the top of my list! I might even do the working holiday visa, heard so much good thing about it.

    Back to HK (I used to live there) or Spain – all of it, top to bottom, taking in all the architecture – modern, Moorish, medieval – that I can.
