In just a few short hours I will be off to San Francisco and Napa Valley for a long weekend of fun, food, wine, and sleep! These two destinations are places that I have long wanted to visit, and I am happy to be able to soon move them off of my Top Ten list. We plan on visiting Alcatraz, the Ferry Building Market, Golden Gate Park, Haight Ashbury, Muir Woods, Sausalito, several Napa wineries including Cake Bread and Mumm, and eating at a few fantabulous restaurants, all of which I will blog about, of course!
This will be my first vacation as a blogger, so you can bet that I will try to capture absolutely everything! If I love San Francisco as much as everyone else does, I may have to add it back on but for now, another destination moves into their spot.
My travel Top Ten is, in no particular order,
Argentina – Buenos Aires, Mendoza wine region and Patagonia
Spain- back to Barcelona, and all over – I need to see Granada, Sevilla, and the Costa Verde
Peru- Machu Picchu is calling my name!
Sicily- to sit in the sun and eat!
Thailand- to sit in the sun and eat some more and to swim in warm seas and experience local culture
Morocco – to visit the markets, learn about the culture and religion, and yes to eat!
South Africa- to go on safari, to visit their wine country, and to learn more about its history
Australia- to hike and camp in the outback, so swim, and surf, and snorkel, AND visit Australian wineries
Tahiti- to stay in a hut over the water and drink umbrella drinks
West Highland Trail, Scotland- to hike for days, stay in cute b & b’s and end up somewhere beautiful to rest and eat lots; I love Scotland!
Do you have a Top Ten or Top Five travel destination list? Do you have plans to knock off any of the destinations soon? I have a couple of great guests posts coming up this week, chock full of travel photos, and I will definitely check in from time to time from the West coast.
