Upon the return of my parents from their 30th wedding anniversary trip to Italy a few months ago, I wanted to ask my family a question.
If you could go anywhere in the world (time, money, age... nothing to stop you) where would you go?
I wanted spur of the moment answers and this is what I got.
Daddy George: "Egypt. I want to see the pyramids."
Nana: "I would ride a train all over the United States. I would want to ride one of the nice trains with the sleeper car, dining car, etc. I would stop in whatever little towns I wanted. Trains have always fascinated me."
Carey (age 16): "Jerusalem."
Mary George (age 13): "Bora Bora."
Mrs. King: "Costa Rica."
Mr. King: "Trenton, NC."
Keith: "Omaha, for the college world series."
Lesley: "Bora Bora"
Dad: "Costa Rica."
Mom: "Paris and London."
Beverly: "The Holy Land."
Bug (age 5): "Paris to see the Eiffel Tower."
Big (age 7): "Paris and Disney World."
Beau: "I would take a golf trip. I want to go to Ireland and Scotland. I also would like sail on a private yacht through the Carribean." He dreams big y'all.
Hailey: "I want to go to Paris. While I am there I want to eat a pastry at a sidewalk cafe with a dog while smoking a cigarette. I want to run through the city in the rain. I want to do all of this while wearing a big fluffy dress (à la Sex and the City season 6). I want to go to Belize to see the Great Blue Hole. I want to do a Greek Island cruise. I want to swim with the pigs in the Exuma Islands in the Bahamas." I am a big dreamer too.
