Wandering amongst magical lands

My thoughts have been wandering of new lands to explore. You see I have a gypsy soul. As seen here.

When posed with the thought of let’s go someplace, anyplace, it can be quite difficult to decide. There are so many factors to consider. The food, the culture, does the list of things to do include the dollar store, and of course can I get a cool t shirt to wear when I get home.

I have narrowed my list down to five finalists (in no particular order):

1. New Zealand. I am dying to see the country that brought us the musical stylings of the Flight of the Concords.

2. The Ice Hotel- I cannot think of anything more romantic than a hotel made of ice.

3. The Great Wall of China- A piece of history from a time when a very big wall could keep people out of your life.

4. Amsterdam- Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go to Amsterdam.

5. The rain forest- Ever since the movie Fern Gully, I have been obsessed with the rain forest. Just like you I am quite sure.

  1. Flight of the Conchords! YES!
    The robot song with its binary solo.
    The “most beautiful girl in the room”
    The Hip hop-o-potomus.

    Their discussion about when they went back in time to a young david bowie and how they were influential in shaping his music by teaching him chords to the songs that they got from a David Bowie guitar chord song book…

    Ahhh…New Zealand’s 3rd most popular song parody duet…we love you πŸ™‚

  2. I’m so fascinated by the ice hotel!! I like the rest of your picks too (except maybe the rain forest; I like that one in theory, but jungles would be a little too buggy for me, generally, I fear.)

    But the ice hotel! How do you sit? How do you sleep? (I mean, without melting things!)

    I decided I wanted to see the ice hotel a long time ago…and then forgot all about it. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. When I was 16, I made the sad mistake of visiting Amsterdam with a bunch of evangelical conservatives. The only thing we did was tour the train station and go to Anne Frank’s house. It was not the best Amsterdam trip ever.

  4. Omg – all those things are on my list too! (Well, Amsterdam would be a “revisit” rather than a first visit – my trip was like the one with the girl who went with the Evangelicals! Anne Frank house and a canal ride!)

      • Haha! I didn’t actually GO with Evangelicals, but it was like it. πŸ˜‰ But there probably should be a support group for those who didn’t get to experience the full greatness that is Amsterdam!
