It might be Tuesday, but I didn’t want to miss another Randomly Me post. Mondays can’t get all the fun!
Truckin’ along with the 10 Day You Challenge…
A fun one for me…
1) Scotland– OK, OK. I know I have gushed about Scotland many times before, but I can’t help it. I’ve been all over the world, but the beauty of the country still stands out amongst the rest. It’s been 8 years since I visited, so I think a return trip is in order…soon!
2) Bulgaria–My new home. I’ve only spent about 4 months total in the country, but I am completely in love with it. Of course, part of that is because my hubs is Bulgarian, but I think I’d love it anyway even if he weren’t! I moved to BG over the winter and will be returning soon after I leave Alaska in the fall.
3) Alaska–At the end of this summer I will have lived in Alaska for over a year of my life. Alaska, and Denali in particular, embed themselves in people’s hearts. I am no exception. Coming back to Denali always feels like coming home.
4) Utah–My home state. I was born and raised in Utah and if Vince and I decide to settle in the U.S., it will likely be in UT. Utah is stunning. From the “greatest snow on earth” at the state’s many ski resorts, to 5 world-famous National Parks; Utah is one of the most beautiful and diverse states in the nation (of course, I am a little biased).
5) India–I visited the country on a volunteer trip with some friends in 2007. My feelings on my time in the country are hard to articulate. I saw some things that broke my heart, but at the same time I saw and experienced things that touched my soul, changed my life, and created lifelong memories. Having traveled in India, I feel like I can travel anywhere in the world. There probably is not another country in the world that can so strongly stimulate all 5 senses ALL.THE.TIME. Sometimes this is an awesome thing, other times not so much. Those of you who have visited will understand what I mean.
6) Egypt–The only country on this list where I haven’t traveled…yet. I have been enamored with Egypt since grade school. In fact, I once had dreams of becoming an Egyptologist (I was fascinated with mummies as a kid). Those childhood career plans may have faded, but my fascination with the country and its history have not. The current political state of the country makes a visit something that will have to wait.
Whew! I can’t believe I was able to narrow down “places” to just six! There are so many more that I could talk about. But I suppose that is a blog post for another day.
