Around the World

Bangkok, 1989

A "tuk-tuk" in Bangkok
The Thai Royal Summer Palace
I loved the topiary elephants.

Dear Gentle Readers, you've given me some great suggestions. Some of the places suggested are already great favorites of mine. One is Thailand. I've been there three times, but I'd go back in a heart beat. I've had the good fortune to travel to Israel, England and Italy, but for all of these places I couldn't be there too often. I've been to Greece -- on a wonderful trip with my college roommate -- where we also went to Egypt, but I'd love a summer in Rhodes or Santorini.

High on my list yet to visit are Japan and Ireland. And then in the more exotic realm I'm eager to see Bhutan and Laos. And someday if I win Lotto, I am going to the North Pole. That is truly my dream trip.
Coming tomorrow! Buttercup sees the World. Can't wait to share it with you!

OOH Buttercup! Thanks for sharing. I too, would love to go to Ireland. My DH and I always said if we won the lottery that is where we would like to go. I am so thrilled that you are sharing some of your trips with us. It is so lovely to go somewhere we might otherwise never get to visit. Thanks for stopping by. It is always so nice to hear from you. I love Snoopy, and I collect all of the Peanuts gang. Love your Statue. "Country Hugs", Sherry

You are one lucky lady. After seeing Mama Mia - one of my favorite movies - I am doing all my positive thinking and planning to go to live in Greece next summer!
