My next dream destination

This is the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island, Michigan. The island is a throwback to old times, where cars are banned and transportation is done by horse or walking. It's not easy to get must fly into Detroit, and then either drive for 5 hours to the ferry terminal, or fly in by a puddlejumper.

On Todd's recommendation, I watched 'Somewhere In Time' last night. It's a 1980 movie starring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. On the surface, it seems a bit hokey...the guy travels in time to meet the love of his life. Very dated special effects, but the story was very sweet. It was filmed almost exclusively in this hotel.

I have a list in the back of my mind of 10 places I want to visit in my lifetime.

1. Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe (we wanted to go when I was in SA, but civil war prevented us)
2. Angel Falls, Brazil
3. Machu Picchu, Peru
4. Athens, Greece (and the greek islands)
5. Cork, Ireland
6. the volcanoes on the Big Island of Hawaii
7. Easter Island
8. Caribbean Islands
9. Azores, Portugal
10. The Canadian Maritimes in the Fall

Now, I have to include the Grand Hotel in that list. It changes all the time. If I could, I would just travel, but it's not too much fun alone and well, then there's that money thing.

What's your Top 10? If money and time were no object, where would you travel?

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
