Do You Want A Postcard?

Feet in Bangkok, Thailand

This post is special to me, because it is my 200th post since starting this blog last April. And as I sit in this cafe in Bangkok, a breeze in the air, a pineapple coconut shake beside me, and taxi fare to take me to Chinatown for the New Year celebrations burning a hole in my pocket, I would like to give my thanks to all of the lovely people I’ve met through this blog. Whether you are a reader new or old, whether you have commented often or never at all, thank you so much for taking a wee bit of time to look at the photos I post and read the words I write.

If I could send all of you a postcard, I would. Instead, I decided that, in each country I travel to in the next six months, I will post a question. The person whose answer makes my heart flutter with wanderlust will then receive a postcard.

So here is my question, a simple one to start: What is your dream destination and why? Please answer using only one sentence; the answer I choose should expect a postcard from Burma!

Antarctica, to see the poetry of the ice, the pink and blue algae that colour the snow, and the abundant wildlife that hasn’t yet learned to fear humans.

Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan to see the children who yearn for nothing more than a simple education and to see the simple lifestyle where people are happy with basic items. And to build schools for these children with Greg Mortenson so they have a chance of growing out of poverty.

Greece, specifically Santorini, because my husband studied Greek in college and I would love to be able to take him there for his first trip out of the United States!

i live in alberta, so it might be strange that my dream destination is in my own country. but im desperate to go to halifax/out east. fish n chips, cool sea air, screaming gulls. my heart’s been out there for many years, just waiting for my body to join it!

My dream destination is the one place i’ve felt at home, Chicago, with the one person who could make anyplace my dream destination.

I’ve been to my destination before many years ago, and I long to return. 🙂 I love your blog!

Karachi, Pakistan to drink sweet, cold mango lassi while I’m lost in a humid, noisy, crowded bazaar surrounded by vibrant colors of cloth and rich jewels, to see people making chai in the corner store and children playing cricket in the alley, to hear the putter-putter of rickshaws and at night during a blackout, to look at the sky and see billions of bright stars shining down on me.
