Up in the mountains, down by the ocean.

Today, I'm going to pretend I'm a billionaire. I'm going to pretend I'm on the cover of Forbes Magazine with Oprah and the Queen. When you are a billionaire you do not have to worry about cost when planning a vacation. Wouldn't that be nice? I know you'd agree.

LB, posted her top picks for vacation spots. I'm going to do the same. These are the places I would like to go, someday. These places are in no particular order. They are in the order Blogger loaded them.

1. Washington DCI find it a shame that I have never been to my nation's capital. I need to see this stuff. Sadly, my family does not agree. I've been begging to go for years. They keep putting it off. I believe my parents are waiting until they are too old to walk, so The Sisters and I will have to push them around in wheelchairs. Genius plan on their part.

2. Fiji IslandsOne time I told my coworkers that if I ever got married, I wanted to honeymoon in Fiji. I want to stay in one of those huts that are on the water. There's really no other place I want to honeymoon. Fiji or nothing. My coworkers quickly told me to never tell a guy that I wanted to honeymoon in Fiji. They said I'd stay single forever. I suppose if this happens I will go to Fiji myself, like all the other places I've been.

3. LondonI've wanted to go to London forever. My dream is to go in the summer and watch a Wimbledon match. Every year I watch the tournament on TV and think to myself....someday you will be sitting in the stands. Of course I will be sitting way up at the top, and I will hardly see anything, but dang it I'll be there. Also, London has H&M.

4. Savannah, GeorgiaWell, my obsession with Savannah started about 3 years. I was working part-time at the Kitchen Store. My boss introduced me to Paula Deen. The obsession started that Saturday. I wanted to try this lady's food. She cooked with butter and cream cheese, sometimes in the same recipe. Then a couple years later I saw her sons. It went downhill from there. Someday, I will go to Savannah and I will eat at Paula's restaurant, and I will meet her sons.

There are other places I'd like to go, but as we know Blogger is a pain when it comes to loading pictures.

Savannah is beautiful! You should totally go there.

I've been to all but Fiji!

Savannah is cool, just make sure you dont go in the summer. Hot + humid = no bueno para mi.

Wa Wa Waughs said...

Yes, you need to go to those places, in this order: Fiji, Wash. D.C., London, Savannah! I'm with Scotty.

Why shouldn't you say to honeymoon in Fiji? That's weird...

Then again it's probable the most common place to go to from here!

I've been looking at trips there too, but I'm too scared to go by myself and get stuck with a bunch of couples.

Renee said...

I would love to go to any of those places. But I agree with Scotty about it being hot down in Savannah. blech

I think that once Mr. Right has slipped a ring on your finger, it will be okay to tell him that you want to go to Fiji.

Fiji was my honeymoon spot but Bora Bora I think has taken it over! And you aren't suppose to tell guys this??!! I would think they would want to get married because of the honeymoon!!

Well, you know, Fiji isn't the cheapest places to go. And I will admit, I'm kind of a travel snob. Ok, I'm a total travel snob. I'm sorry, I try not to be, but it just comes out.

TC said...

I've been to three of the four.

DC's cool: you should go someday. I recommend The Wall, Arlington, The National Cathedral, and the statue I can't think of the name of, but it's the soldiers hoisting the flag. Skip some of the monuments: they aren't that great.

London didn't do much for me.

I love, love, love, love, LOVE Savannah. And I even went in August, and it was HOT and HUMID and what some might call miserable, but still gorgeous. Go. Whenever you get a chance, go. Heck, I'll meet you :)

I want to go to (and I'm making myself only do 4 because that's all you did): Vancouver, Maine, Hawaii and Greece.

OK Chick said...

TC, Maine is amazing. I loved it. The town I visited looked like the cover of a JCrew Catalog.

I might take you up on Savannah. We could eat at Paula's place and fight over the single son. I predict a great weekend trip.

Fiji would be pretty cheap once you got there with the exchange rate. So tell them that.

Ma What's 4 dinner said...

Great list. I've been to DC and London, but love both cities. I'm dying to get to the other two! Let's go together!

Lots of yummy love,

OMG...I have said the exact same thing about Figi!

TC said...

I want to go to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. I could care less about J Crew look-alike-ness, but I want to hike and take like 1001 photos of the rocky coastline :)

I didn't go to Paula's restaurant, but I'd be up for it. You have to see River Street and visit all the plazas. They're amazing. And Forest Gump (Which I haven't seen ), was filmed there.

So I have a guy friend who is set on honeymooning in Fiji. Me: "So what if your fiancee really wants to go somewhere else? Him: "That won't happen."

Hmm. And, guess where said guy friend is moving to? Savannah!!

Let me know if you're ever down that way, and I'll arrange a meeting.....
