We Want to Go To There !

If you haven't yet read yesterday's blog post where I reviewed "The Longest Way Home," by Andrew McCarthy, please take a minute and do so now.  As you can see, Andrew is quite the world traveler these days.  I know there are many places I'd like to visit if given the opportunity.  I also wanted to see where in the world my fellow BWOBNY colleagues would like to visit.  We once all joked about renting a RV and trekking across the country to check out San Diego Comic Con and maybe we'll still do that one day.  In the meantime, here are there other places we'd like to visit:

Alan wants to go to Scotland, England, the Bahamas, Hawaii, and Germany.

Meanwhile, Eileen wants to visit New Zealand, France, the British Isles, Greece, and the Marquesa Islands.

Like Alan, Jess B. wants to go to Germany as well.  She would love to see the house her grandmother grew up in.  Mallory also wants to visit Germany because the pictures she has seen on the region are gorgeous and she'd like to learn more about the culture. 

Jess P. would like to stay in the good old USA and would love to go to California. She'd like to visit Ray (who helped our store when it was closing)  and then go to Disneyland since he lives close by.


Nancy wants to check out  Italy & Norway. Italy for the food and vineyards and history and beauty. Norway for my heritage.  

The closest that I've ever been to Norway was the area at Epcot.  The Norway ride featured these evil trolls that spooked me so much as a kid that I never want to visit the country.  Be careful over there, Nancy!
Rachel dreams about traveling to Ireland.  She is I'm fascinated by the music, culture, folklore, food, and the landscape.

Rebecca is going to be quite busy.  She'd like to see Scotland since both sides of her family go back there and she could also meet up with one of her Twitter friends.  Plus,  she has always wanted to go to Ireland, because she has heard it's gorgeous. Finally, she would also love to visit Greece, Egypt, and Israel for various reasons including her spiritual heritage.  

Rebecca is the queen of multi-tasking so if she got the opportunity to visit all those places in a week, she could do it!  

As for me, I've wanted to go to London since I was in high school.  I'd love to see Buckingham Palace, see a Robbie Williams concert, and pretend to be Ms. Moneypenny for the day.  Then I'd like to go to Paris and see the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and and get a delicious desert at an outdoor cafe. After that, I'd like to go to Vienna and look for the Jesse to my Celine as in one of my favorite movies, Before Sunrise.  But before I do all that, I need to go to Glasgow, Scotland and visit my bestie and former Borders employee Melanie.  

Now, let's hear from our readers, where would you like to travel to?  Don't forget to check out yesterday's post where you can enter to win a copy of Andrew McCarthy's, "The Longest Way Home."
