tumblrbot asked:WHERE WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO VISIT ON YOUR PLANET?
So, I guess I’m going to answer the tumblrbot question. Maybe that will get me writing, yo. I tried this thing where I subscribed to a “topic of the day” writing group type thing… but it was sort of a fail. I think I only actually did the daily topic ONCE. I will try to do better with this, though. Writing again would be really good for me.
So first off… seriously? Why just stick to my MY planet? I want to visit someone else’s planet. Ya never know, could be verah nize. This question is sort of awful for me. There are so many places I would like to see, and am, by no means, an experienced traveller. My hitlist:
I want to see Macchu Picchu (Ist that how it’s spelled?)
The Colliseum @ Rome.
I like ruins. I want to visit some good ruins. Ruins in Greece would be awesome, too.
The Eifel Tower AND the Leaning Tower. I would like to take a picture pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower and have my awesome Chucks in it, like 2 hands and one foot against the tower, just to feature the Chucks. But which pair?? hmmmm… (Actually, I just like taking pictures of my feet in interesting places… It’s a simple pleasure, but makes for sort of bad photography I think…)
Okay. Moving on. I want to see the Pyramids.
The Sidney Opera House.
That famous amphitheatre I can’t remember the name of. And I would like to yell something from the stage.
Galapagos Islands. (I heard there is a humongous wait-list to visit this archipelago… but, as long as you don’t go where you’re not supposed to, they WILL let you visit them) Above all, I would like to go the the Galapagos Islands and accidentally step on a butterfly. I know this sounds cruel and unusual, and I like butterflies, but something about the pseudo-offlimits of the Galapagos and all of the amazingly unique flora & fauna there makes me think of that Ray Bradbury short story “A Sound of Thunder” and I just think it would be wicked cool to have this experience because it would be crazy deja-vou-ish for me, even though I have obviously never had that experience.
I want to go on a tour of all of the world-ranked roller-coaster parks on a day that they were not employing their crazy mascot people if they have them. I LOVE roller-coasters, I just can’t deal with the characters. I will not write about my phobia in this post. I will put it up some other time, maybe.
I also would like to go on a tour of the graves of all of my favorite authors that are dead and leave little tokens on them and/or visit their childhood homes/places they lived. Dorky, but, I still think that is cool. Flannery O’Connor—check. So many left to go…
Stuff in America that I want to see, because I know more about the major landmarks here than anywhere else, being that I am a shallow and culturally-underexposed American:
The Grand Canyon. Heck yes I want to hike that thing. It looks so awesome in pictures.
Believe it or not, I think it would be cool to see Mt. Rushmore.
Yellowstone park, because it is actually a massive volcano, and it would be exciting to walk around on top of a massive volcano even if it is mostly dormant…
Area 51—DEFINITELY. I know you can’t actually get ONTO Area 51, but I have heard there is a white mailbox somewhere in the vicinity of Area 51 that some people have signed. I would like to put my name on that mailbox.
Alaska, to watch the aurora borealis.
These are going to sound cheesy, but, seriously, they are on my hit-list:
I want to see the “world’s biggest” stuff scattered across the midwest… like the biggest frying pan and the biggest ball of twine. I just think it’s cool to stand next to big stuff.
That humongous dinosaur in PeeWee’s big adventure. I am assuming that this is a real thing. I WANT TO SEE IT.
I am sure that I am forgetting about a heck ton of good places. But, I am also tired of this topic now, so, meh.
