Where have you always wanted to go?

Even if it is close by. I just admitted to wanting to see Michigan. I know I've hit every state in the CONUS (lower 48 if you live in Alaska; Mainland if you live in Hawaii), but I do not think I've ever set foot in Michigan.

For many years I wanted to travel "abroad", but flying has lost its appeal. But I want to take a road trip and see Michigan, maybe next year. Assuming we don't acquire a new dog.

Our 30th anniversary is coming up, and sometimes I think of local (so to speak) places. When we were traveling cross country, Starved Rock outside of Utica, IL was a great, old-fashioned resort.

If you go to Sanibel, there's Ding Darling National Park where you can see the exotic birds nesting. (I just love the name Ding Darling.)

yup, been there many times. we always stay at the casa ybel, if anyone's interested in going. great place.

oh, forget the nesting birds. we almost ran over an alligator the last time we were there.

and while wading in chest deep water off captiva, 2 big sharks brushed past me while chasing fish.

it's a good thing they didn't like pasty white folks.

I want to go many places, but the two that stand out are Australia and Alaska.

I have also always wanted to go on a cruise--2 actually. One to Alaska and one to the Caribbean.
