This week’s Favorite Things blog is about places. I’ve visited some really great places over the years–and loads of others are on my Bucket List. In fact, a majority of the items on my Bucket List are places I want to go, things I want to see. Yet while many places have been great, there are three that rise above the rest. And they are:
#3 England. I’ve visited this wonderful country several times, although not recently, and I look forward to returning someday–hopefully in the summer because we’d like to see a Wimbledon match. I love the history and the tea shops and the book stores and the museums and Harrods and Mayfair and…well, just all of it. I love that the Tube makes it so easy to get around–and the fact that everyone speaks English–and with that fab accent! I imagine myself being transported back to Jane Austen’s time. It’s the country where I’ve set all my historical books and it holds a special place in my heart.
#2 Venice. Actually, all of Italy, but this city in particular, with it’s winding canals and fabulous food and history. It oozes romance and mystery and a charm that exists no where else. There is no other city in the world like it.
And my #1 favorite place is: Bermuda. The DH and I have visited this British island numerous times and we love it. The beaches are gorgeous, the shopping and food terrific, the boating unsurpassed, and we love getting around town on a moped. We’re not planning to visit Bermuda this year but hopefully we’ll get back there next year.
