today i’m feeling restless. Fall generally makes me feel this way. last year i was leafing through an old Bartlett’s Quotations book that i had inherited from my great aunt when i came across this William Bliss Carman quote that my aunt had scrawled on a piece of paper and stuck in the book:

There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir, we must rise and follow her; When from every hill of flame, She calls and calls each vagabond by name.

i know it’s not October yet, but close enough. my gypsy blood is stirring, and i just can’t sit still.

so, with that in mind, i have been thinking today of all the places i want to travel to someday (you know- when i’m independently wealthy and have nothing to do). so here is my top ten places to go/do list:

  1. Ireland
  2. Scotland
  3. Alaska
  4. Olympic Peninsula (Washington)
  5. the Swiss Alps
  6. the English countryside
  7. Australia
  8. Machu Picchu, Peru (i’ve actually been to the Peru, just not there)
  9. backpack the Appalachian Trail
  10. Africa

you won’t find me basking on some beach. i’m too restless.


where would you go?
