I don't even own a passport, visiting far flung places hasn't been something I have ever been able to contemplate (for various very boring reasons), but it hasn't stopped me from thinking and planning amazing trips 'for when I retire!'
So five places I would like to travel to are:-
Egypt and the Pyramids
Every since 'we did' Tutankhamun in Mrs Catwright's history class I have been fascinated. The Egyption civilisation just captivated me then and still does now.
The Grand Canyon
One of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, it must be an amazing sight. The numbers sound huge (The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide and attains a depth of over a mile (6,000 feet / 1,800 metres)) but they just can't do justice to actually seeing it for yourself. I can't begin to imagine what it actually looks like.
The Great Wall of China
A wonder of the world which just blows my mind when you think of the technology (or lack of it) used to build it and how old it is. Amazing! Its also something else which I have read about but the numbers mean nothing until I can see it for myself.
To travel to and travel across a glacier
Don't mind where (but obviously it would be somewhere cold!) but want to see for myself something which has and continues to shape the landscape. Britain would not look like it does if it wasn't for the work the glaciers of the great ice age did in transforming it. The hugeness of it, the fact its moving, albeit slowly and the beauty but danger of it appeals to me. And if you believe everything your read about global warming, we may not have any left soon!
Again another civilisation which is no longer. I think the huge sculptures are mesmerising and at the same time so sad. It's believed this race of people used all their natural resources in their quest to put up these huge blocks of stone. They ran out of tree's, which they needed to move the massive structures into place. This in turn meant they had no material to build shelter and more importantly to keep themselves warm and fed.
So there you go, my five places I want to visit. I apologise now if they duplicate any of the others you can see on Kate Takes Five pages. I purposely didn't read any before I put mine together. But I'm going to take a peek at them now, and suggest you do too!
