Been to England & Europe... hubby in the military in the early 70's. Love it all.... but I'd like to go to the Virgin Islands, with no worries....
... or.... I can't think of anyplace else.... I'm pretty much content.
I'm a simple girl... I don't need much...

When I was young, I wanted to travel the world and get as far away from New Brunswick as I could. Now though, having traveled a fair bit in Atlantic Canada, and briefly into Western Canada, I've come to the conclusion that I don't know my own country well enough to appreciate the differences in another one.

This is such a vast continent that I don't think I could ever truly come to know it all. I still have an urge to see Scotland and Ireland, where my ancestors come from. (Also Belgium, where my favourite beers come from.) But I bet I could spend the rest of my life traveling around Canada--even just Eastern Canada--with out ever thinking that I knew it well enough to represent my own region to the rest of the world.

Lately, my interest in Acadian--and thus, Cajun--history, and also (completely unrelated...) country blues music and increased my desire to tour through the Southern States. If ever I do muster the courage for such a trip, I would rely heavily on the few Southern friends I have made on the internet--mainly folk on this forum.

Bahia de Sao Salvador, Brazil (I'm ticked off because I lived in Brazil for 5 years and never got to legendary Bahia)
Australia & New Zealand (cheating a little on the number, here)
Auschwitz, for the sake of my soul.

Miriam,

One can only imagine the breadth of emotions a Jewish person would feel when confronted with an artifact of the Holocost, like Auschwitz. I'm not real good at visiting the gravesites of past relatives. First, I don't believe they are there. Second, I do not like the deep sadness it generally brings. But thanks for sharing since it does provoke some interesting thoughts...

Here in Israel many high-school graduating classes go on organized trips to Auschwitz. More than a visit of respect to the martyred, it is an effort to integrate the reality of that immense loss into one's very being; especially important now that the survivors of that time, that is the living witnesses, are very elderly and dying away.

But on a drinkier note, people in Brazil enjoy many concoctions but cachaca (cashassah) is the national tipple. It is also the base for the caipirinha, a daiquiri-like drink. Except that to me cachaca always tasted like kerosene; never could drink it.

And I would so love to tour all of vast Australia and New Zealand, taking in of course the wineries in each country as well. I hear the kosher wines are just as good as the non-. And I have several friends in both countries...well, maybe someday.
