Where to Go?

As I cruise through Google Earth, watch Russia Today, China TV and the travel channel even though some of the presenters nauseate me, I see places that I’d like to go to but know in my mind without a massive injection of pennies, I’ve more chance of walking on the Moon.

These are 5 places that capture my imagination.
Aral Sea in Uzbekistan to see the stranded ships.
Ubirr, Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land, Northern Territories, Australia, to see the incredible countryside.
Zhongjing, China as above, with my pink face and blond-ish hair, I’d stand out like a pork chop in a synagogue but it would be worth it.
Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea because I do, I don’t know why. It’s probably because if I lived there for 3 years I could get a visa for Australia.
Patagonia, Argentina because it looks like they should have made Lord of the Rings there. It’s got glaciers, mountains, fertile valleys, pampas and raging rivers.
I have no real pressing inclination to go to a city. I’ve been to Paris, Brisbane, London, Amsterdam and KΓΆln and they are all much of a muchness. Maybe Buenos Aires or Budapest may be graced by my presence one day.

This is Rory Gallagher. I saw him only twice. What a terrible shame he died so young.Β 
This song makes me feel sad for Rory but the melody is so beautiful.

  2. If I was young and free I probably would do that. I prefer hotels and B&B’s to caravans and camping and I’m sure we’ll book via Google Earth this year like we did last. We planned a route and booked into B&B’s we found on Google Earth. The Germans are so trusting, brilliant to get on with and so easy to book with.
