Top Ten Tuesday

17 May

Top 10 coolest places I’ve ever been:

10) Hong Kong – a busy bustling neon Asian version of NYC

9) Morocco – just because I can say that I’ve been to Africa

8) Bermuda – bright blue almost green clear water with pink sand beaches

7) The Eagle’s Nest in Berchtesgaden, Germany – Hitler’s hideout during WWII.  It sits atop a mountain where you can see into 5 different countries on a clear day and while I didn’t chisel off a piece of the fireplace inside as others have done in the past, it was a really interesting place to visit that I will never forget.

6) Niagara Falls – the spectacular look of the falls during the light show at night

5) The DMZ between North and South Korea – definitely the most terrifying experience of my life was standing in the conference room that has the table with the red line down the length of it as the soldiers stood outside looking in the windows and brandishing their large guns (probably AK47s).

4) Bangkok, Thailand – sitting with and petting a tiger, the extravagant temples and the unique floating market

3) Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany – the unfinished castle of Ludwig II and the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle; just an amazing sight.

2) Vatican City in Rome, Italy – home of the leader of the Christian faith, the breathtaking Sistene Chapel and numerous other famous works of art.

and…

1) Zermatt, Switzerland – I know I’ve described this lovely town before but I can never do it justice like actually being there in the clean, quiet carless little snow coated town lit by bright Christmas lights that lies in the valley and shadow of the massive Matterhorn.  Just my favorite place in the whole world!  (and, coincidentally, the contestants of The Amazing Race were there for three episodes this season!)

What are the coolest places you have ever been?

    Ahh yes Bermuda! What a beautiful place. Though our cruise was shortened due to mechanical problems we were still able to experience the pink sand beaches and quaint little shops. Standing at the base of the Gibbs Hill lighthouse, looking down and seeing our cruise ship was an awesome sight! Oh and having a tall ale at The Frog and Onion Pub. Can I go back now?!

    Visiting from SITS. Wow, you have been to some pretty amazing places! One of my favorite places is hiking in the Rocky Mountains. It’s hard work to get to the top, but the view is breathtaking! I also fell in love with Bruges, a charming, medieval, Belgian town.
