[30DoL] Day 1: Top 10 places you wish to visit in your lifetime

The top 10 places I wish to visit in my lifetime?  Okay, let’s see what we have here.  And please note that this list will be pretty much the first 10 that come to mind, as there are lots of places I’d love to visit.  And yes, if there’s a way to collect a bottle of water from any of them for my juju collection, I will make sure it happens.

  1. Therra, aka Santorini
    I have wanted to visit this place for as long as I can remember.  For me, this is the location of Atlantis, and I have long wanted to go there for very personal and spiritual reasons.
  2. The Oracle at Delphi
    If I get to Santorini, I’ll also get to the location of the Oracle at Delphi.  These two really are very closely tied for me on a spiritual level.
  3. Chalice Well & Glastonbury Tor
    Oh yes, this site is VERY high on my “must visit” list.  Again, this is for spiritual reasons.  And no, I won’t deny that it’s partially because of Mists of Avalon.
  4. Stonehenge
    If I’m in the UK for Chalice Well and Glastonbury Tor, I’m going to Stonehenge, too.  This is just a given, y’all…
  5. Hatley Castle, Victoria, BC, Canada
    To be fair, I’ve been to Hatley Castle before.  I just really want to go there again.  Not only has it been used in a bunch of movies & TV shows, including my beloved Poltergeist: the Legacy, but it’s also just a gorgeous location.
  6. Hawaii
    Yeah, I’ve wanted to visit Hawaii for years now.  I want to swim with the dolphins and the sea turtles, among other things.  Plus?  I want to see the volcanoes, okay?
  7. Australia & New Zealand
    Oh yes, please!  I don’t care that there are more things there that could kill me than I want to think about.  I just really want to go see how beautiful it is.
  8. Victoria Falls
    I will admit that, as a child, my first connection to this waterfall was an obsession with Victoria Principal and anything that bore her name.  I was like 8yo and she was one of my first big celeb obsessions, okay?  But I also want to see it because I have a strong connection to waterfalls in general.
  9. Niagara Falls
    Another major waterfall that I’d love to see.  I seriously have a thing for waterfalls, and this is one of the biggies that I’ve always been fascinated by.
  10. Cahokia Mounds State Historical Site
    The mounds at Cahokia fascinate me endlessly.  The novels written by Kathleen O’Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear about them and the people who lived there are some of my favorites to read.
