Next week I plan to get back to posting about the fiber projects I'm working on, and there are (I'm afraid) several of them. But before I leave the topic of travel, Sallie's comment on the last post reminded me that there are lists to be made.
I'd like to start my list of places to see with the Galapagos, as I know a couple of people who have been there. Go to An Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel to read what Kay has to say about the place (once on her blog, search Galapagos to find all her posts on the subject).
In talking with my knitting group, I learned about barge travel through canals in France from Marilyn, who was kind enough to bring photos of her trip there some 30 years ago. Without her stories, I would never have known a thing about barge travel, where there is time to walk along the tow-paths and to bike into the passing towns. And Susan, another knitter, said that the best way to see Paris, the City of Light, is to hire a taxi for a ride down the Champs Elysees at night.
So we've already put travel by barge or river boat (and taxi!) through France on our list; but we'd also like river barging in England, Italy, and Germany, and perhaps even some travels in China and Russia.
But you are experts in travel, I just know it. I'm sure you have suggestions of places where you've been or where you'd like to go that we should add to our list.
We are looking for any ideas about any kind of travel, although I might add that we are not very formal people and that we prefer not to be too organized and touristy. To us, slow travel is best, especially now that we have tried the train and loved it.
What do you say? I'd love to hear your experiences and suggestions.
