I want to go to Ethiopia because the last time couple of times I was "back home" visiting Mom in Sioux Falls, SD (Mom and Dad moved there when I graduated from college, so it's not really "back home" but you know what I mean, right?), my husband and I found a wonderful Ethiopian restaurant called Lalibela: http://www.lalibelasd.com/.  We'd never had Ethiopian food, and found we really love it - especially the very springy bread (Injera) that it's served on.

I shall travel back in time (via Ouroboros) to the elegant Empire of Ethiopia (B.C.E.)

Oops!  I didn't see E was taken.   I guess I'll go to France, since there's lots there I haven't seen except on TV.

I'm gonna go to Greece. I've always wanted to go to Greece. I mean, John Travolta made that movie about it and everything. I gotta go see what all the fuss is about. Gee whiz, how could I not?

Hell, you say?

Is that anywhere near Iceland? I hear they have lots of ice and volcanoes.

I myself would not mind a visit to see Mt. Fuji and other interesting areas in Japan... provided that I stay away from the Fukushima area... I like my characters to glow, but me personally?  Not so much.

Ooh, and sushi from where it was invented?  Heck yeah.  And I would love to try a piece of puffer fish (mugu), but... kinda don't wanna die for the opportunity. o.0  I'll stick with unagi and such.

I'd like to travel to a certain part of Korea, carefully hip-mo-tize a certain decision-making group from a certain gaming company, and convince them to:

1.  reopen Paragon studios and rehire the original devs at twice the salary

2. focus time/money into reopening CoH and apologizing to all CoH customers.

I have to be honest, I'm a little bummed out right now. I just got back from Latvia and I didn't get to see Doctor Doom at all. They didn't even seem to know who I was talking about.

I guess he's "too important" to give autographs to the "little people" anymore. Stupid celebrities. Sadface.

Maybe I'll move to Madagascar. All those Lemurs cannot be wrong.
As long as somebody keeps making up stories for it, the City isn't gone.

Nepal.  So I can see Everest with my own damn eyes.  Not go up it, that'd be a bad Idea for my mal-configured-for-a-mountain-climb body (aka fat), but to just say "wow.  That's a big damn mountain."

OK, (and yes, that's a hint) I admit that I'm a sucker for Rogers and Hammerstein, so I guess we'll just have to go here: http://youtu.be/ZbrnXl2gO_k?t=51s

I am off to the Philippines to practice my Tagalog and try my hand (er, feet) at dancing the tinikling!
Mabuhay!

I'm gonna visit Quebec. I know they're not a separate country from Canada, but they want to be, so they get some points for ambition. Plus hey, it gives me an excuse to visit Canada again. And after all, a Q is just a C with a mask and a cheesy mustache right?

I think I'll go to Tuvalu because I want to see all the prosperity this little island nation has engendered from selling it's *.tv address to all those folks out there who wanted an easy-to-remember-that-you-saw-it-on-TV domain name.

There are so many places I haven't seen in the beautiful USA, I am hitching up my little home-on-wheels and heading out.

Can I go to Valkenvania?  Please?  No?  FINE.  But you know it'd be weird to see... except it's all burnt down anyway.  Hm. 

I'll go to Venezuela then.  Should be interesting at the very least.

I'll go first to Wabasha, MN on the Mississippi River near its confluence with the Chippewa River and, as per the URL, a great weekend getaway spot from the hustle and bustle of the twin cities. (Wabasha has a population of under 3,000 per the 2010 census.)  And see, they even have their own tourism website:  http://www.wabashamn.org/  So, yes, while I am 3/4 joking with my tongue planted firmly in one cheek, nonetheless, I bet like many rural communities it is a great weekend spot and change of scenery from city living.  If Wabasha is too pedestrian for some, then I travel in my mind to Garrison Keillor's mythic Lake Wobegone where one can even sign up for podcasts for the local news  if so inclined)  http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/about/podcast/

Hear the cry of the loon... (on youtube)     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tO2jE0a2Xro   :D    And, no, Silly; I don't mean me; I mean the Minnesota State bird!   ;D

Wabasham... sounds like a stage magician's magic words. "And now, watch as I make my beautiful assistant vanish into the ether! ...Uh, I mean the aether! Hippity... Bippity... Waba-SHAM!!!" *ka-poof*

Still though, that's tons better than the magic words I'd use.

"Leeeeleeee Sobieeeeskiiiiii... Uuuuma... Ooooprah.... CHAKA KHAN!!!!"


Hmm. But anyway, as for my next destination... I think I'll go to the city of Xanthi. It's only fitting since I traveled to Greece earlier... Xanthi is a Greek city, you see. So that's obviously where they filmed Greece 2. :D
