Ten Thoughts...England

As I was thinking about the year ahead -- that is now here -- I made a list of ten items that I'd like to focus on in 2013. It was total free association. If I could do anything, where would I put my focus? It's not a super practical list. It doesn't include lose weight, declutter and be thrifty. Those are "shoulds" for me and take no imagination. It wasn't everywhere I'd like to travel or actually places that I am planning to visit. Rather it was ten things that came to mind that I would really (en)joy. Starting tonight I am going to do a post for the next nine days and share my list. In no particular order...


I want to plan to visit England -- and Scotland and Wales. I've never been to Bath or Oxford or the Lake Country and one can't go to the Victoria and Albert Museum too many times. There are friends to visit and places I've only read about in Wordsworth's poetry I'd like to see. I don't think that it's a trip for 2013, much more likely 2014, but I want to read about places to visit. I want to read English novels and dream about seeing my English friends. I want to savor the planning and enjoy thinking about the fun I will have taking the train all around the beautiful English countryside.

What's your dream trip for 2013?
