I often find myself dreaming about the kinds of trips I’ll take if I ever get to a point where I have a full month’s leave at my disposal. Heck, even three weeks *might* do it for some. Here are some of my favorite goals:
-My aboslute must-do for me: a full trek down the original path of Route 66!
-A month in Japan would be dreamy.
-A trek around Australia, New Zealand, and nearby islands (especially Christmas Island)!
-A full tour of South America complete with voyage to Antarctica, the Galapagos, and Easter Island
-A full Europe tour – with stops in every country, some more leisurely than others. I would of course take plenty of time for my lovely Dutch friends!
-A trek across Africa which would include Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, and Lesotho (especially that crazy airport!) at a mimimum
-A Middle Eastern tour, to include Egypt, Jordan, the UAE, Israel, and the Bamiyan Valley of Afghanistan
-A proper Asia tour
-Travel by train, plane, and boat around New England, Canada, and Alaska
-A cool month to jet-set through to every single U.S. state and territory I’ve yet to see
-A full drive down the West Coast. I’ve only ever been to Sacramento.
Ultimate Dream: One of those crazy world cruises where you just live on a boat for several months and go EVERYWHERE. I think we’ll save one of those for when my salary is a little closer to Doris Buffett’s, however.
What would YOU do if you had a month to travel anywhere you chose? (Would you even travel at all?)
