Conversation Starter: Going on a Trip

I pulled a conversation card from the bucket today so we can have a little fireside chat, dear reader.

Without further ado, here it is:
You are going on a trip.  Would you rather fly on a plane, cruise on a boat, ride on a train or drive in a car?  Where would you go and why?
First of all, YIPEE!  A TRIP!  If money wasn't an issue, I would prefer to fly on an airplane to Australia and New Zealand and go on a 'walk about' (whatever that is.)  John Locke from Lost put it in my head how cool that would be.

Okay, that's really not on my list right now.  I would actually want to go to Scandinavia, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, but not until spring or summer.  Unless I have a cute, warm winter parka and gear.  I love Nordic countries and cold weather people.  Don't get me wrong though - I do love tropical places on occasion too.

I would take my family with me IF I had a hands-on nanny and plenty of me time.  I would like to stay in B&Bs or quaint hotels.  It would be fun to take bike tours and other little adventures along the way.  I would like to stay up late dining, drinking and dancing or playing darts (the 4 D's) and sleep in late.  I would also like to have a luggage handler and driver with us at all times to lug all the gear around and be a DD.

It's not so far-fetched a dream, but it's probably not going to happen this year.    Perhaps an incentive to save money for when I get that job?

Now it's your turn! Where would you go and how would you get there?  What would you do? I'm guessing you're not going to say you'd like to take a cruise in Italy. 


  1. I have so many places. My great aunt and uncle have a business where they are constantly traveling everywhere, I love hearing about where they go.
    I want to go to India and see the Taj Mahal. I want to hang at an irish pub and see Stonehenge, eat at a cafe near the Eiffel Tower and then I want to move to Hawaii and live there.
    Oh, and japan. for sure Japan.

  2. Hmmm...I'll say fly first class to Europe. I've never been and it's on my bucket list to do the whole tourist thing.
    It's fun to dream isn't it?
