Stolen Question

My sister Betsy has a blog and she does a weekly post called "Question of the Week". Her question last week was: Which countries have you visited, which are on your list to visit?

Since Michael and I will be celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary this summer, I decided to "borrow" Betsy's post idea and make the 'which are on your list to visit' part the planning list for our anniversary vacation.

So, which countries have I visited:
Canada: Vancouver & Victoria
Mexico Land Trips: Punta Mita outside of Puerta Vallarta & Zihuatanejo, we also visited Cozumel on a cruise. On this same cruise we visited:
Roatan, Honduras & Belize City, Belize.
United Kingdom: England & Scotland
San Juan Puerto Rico (which is technically US territory, but it doesn't feel like it)
Germany: Berlin
Sweden: Stockholm
Estonia: Tallin
Finland: Helsinki
Denmark: Copenhagen
Russia: St. Petersburg
Japan: Lots of cities, having lived there for a period in 1987 and then visiting a few times since then
British West Indies/Caribbean (on multiple cruises): Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, Nevis
French & Dutch Caribbean: St. Martin/St. Maarten

Now for the fun part. Which countries are on my wish list for a visit, in no particular order (I know this is a long list, but it is a wish list):
Peru
Ireland
Spain
France
Norway
Switzerland
Germany
Italy
Greece
Fiji
French Polynesia
Maldive Islands
Australia
New Zealand

We welcome any suggestions...

Hmmm...where would I go. Since I live vicariously through you extra thought needs to go into this. Your choices are all great so if you go to any of those places I wouldn't be disappointed, but, let's add The Great Wall of China and The Great Pyramids of Giza and since you are in that region I would go to the Western Wall and the B'hai Temple in Haifa. All for now. I hope you have a good time since you are travelling for so many. Love, Dana

Hey Dana, great ideas, however, I don't think I am quite ready to visit China or Egypt and I figured we would do a family trip to Israel, so I left those off for this year. I tried to pick relatively safe locations... but you never know. Some day.

In that case why don't you go to Toronto Canada with a side trip to Niagra Falls. The falls are much prettier on the Canadian side rather than the Buffalo side. And isn't Niagra Falls theee honeymoon destination?! Good luck choosing.
Love, Dana
