This week’s prompt for the #MFRWAuthors Blog Challenge is Top 5 Places I’d Like to Visit. I seem to talk about travel a lot these days. So here’s my list:
1. The British Isles, ever and always on the top of my list. Yes, I’ve been there before, but I only saw a little bit of what is to offer on those little islands. I’d like to spend more time in the Scottish Highlands, see more of Ireland, the northern part of England, and I’d like to visit Wales, the only place I haven’t been to at all. I have roots in the British Isles and I feel sort of home there. Well, not at Urquart Castle, which is a picturesque ruin.
2. Germany, where the rest of my roots are. On my trip last fall, I got to see a bit of the Bavarian countryside as we drove from Prague to Regensburg to board out river boat. The next morning we had a short walking tour of this charming little city. The picture below doesn’t do it justice. I’d like to see a lot more of Germany, with at least a day cruise on the Rhine. Gotta see that Lorelei Rock before I push off into the great unknown.
3. Croatia. I’ve been dying to see Dubrovnik ever since I heard of it, and the Plitvice Lakes National Park looks absolutely stunning. I’d also like to continue to Slovenia to see Lake Bled and the capital city, Ljubljana.
4. New Zealand. I went to Australia in my twenties, but missed New Zealand, which must have some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. I’m thinking cruise.
5. Iceland. I think it would be fascinating to visit such a remote, unique place. Maybe in the fall (if I think I can stand the temperature) because I’m dying to see the Aurora Borealis, and it will never be visible in Southern California. My friend Rebecca wants to go to Finland and spend a night in a glass igloo, and maybe we’ll get there some day.
And of course there are loads of places in the US and Canada I’d like to see, for instance Glacier National Park. But I’m dreaming big today.
What five places would you like to visit?

Love your list! I’m adding more places to mine with every stop I make 🙂
I imagine we’ll all be doing that today, Sherry. I’ll be checking everyone else’s posts this afternoon.
The aurora borealis is gorgeous. Love to see it too. But no ice igloo, don’t lke cold.
I hear you, Helen, but unfortunately, no cold, no aurora. It’s only visible in fall and winter in the far north.
Gosh, those pictures are breathtaking, Linda! I’d love to see Iceland also!
Thanks, Mary, but only the first two are mine. The other three are from depositphotos.com.
I would also love to visit Iceland!
Iceland and the Aurora Borealis. A friend of mine spent a couple of weeks there last year. He loved it. It made me want to go. Nice list.
Great list! That picture of Croatia is beautiful. I need to start playing the lottery so I can actually go see some of these places.
Hope you make it, Meka.
Iceland is another place to see the aurora and is pretty easy to get too. Its on my list, as is New Zealand. Five choices was just not enough.
Five choices was definitely not enough! At least not for those of us bitten by the travel bug.
Yet another person with Iceland on the list? We ought to arrange a MFRW tour.
Sounds like a plan!
Sounds like a plan, Ed! I’d love it.
Great list, and Yes! stay in the igloo. Thanks for sharing!
The igloo does sound like fun.
Great list! We walked the top of the fortified wall all the way around the city in Dubrovnik – it was one of the highlights of our cruise one year. My roots are in Germany, too – someday I’d like to visit, too. I’m up for the MFRW Iceland trip as long as there is no igloo, lol.
