Contrary to Popular Belief...

I have not fallen off the edge of the earth! The second half of May is a tough time for me, so I tend to "cacoon" a bit. I stock the freezer with bon-bons, hit the "trashy romance novel" aisle at Fred Meyer, pick up a new "chick flick," gather my support people around me, and I hunker down to ride out the emotional roller coaster. This year, Mr. Potential rode out the storm with me, so I ddn't get to eat all the bon-bonbs by myself.... I occcasionally checked email, sometimes the Blogs, and less frequently, responded. But the worst of the storm is over, and I'm almost feeling human again, so I should be a regular (intermitant?) figure around here again.

I have to say, for one so new to the AdultFriendFinder community, I felt very cared for by the emails and Blog comments that I received checking on my welfare. You people are just amazing! Thank you for your concern. Please allow me the honor of caring for you when you need it, okay?

Now, for the Thought to Stick to the Roof of Your Mind: Where do you HAVE TO GO, as in a place on earth, which you have not been to yet, before you die, and WHY? And for the five or six people here who have been everywhere already: What do you HAVE TO DO before you die, and WHY? I'll share inside.


There's today's thought to stick to the roof of your mind.

The one place I HAVE to visit before I die is Paris, France. As for the why, does anyone really need a reason to visit Paris? I see it much the same as the question, "Why do you climb a mountain?" Answer: "Because it's there!"

But seriously, is there any more romantic place on earth? My nephew swears that Italy is far more romantic, so maybe I'll have to add that to my list. But the Eifel Tour, the Champs Elysees, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, Notre Dame, and the Seven Bridges--and those are just a few. Then there's the whole fashion history, the food, the cafes...the romance! I'm saving as much as I can, so hopefully next year. Now I need to convince Mr. Potential....

I have to visit Antartica before I die, why, it's the last frontier here on Earth, I want to see one place not affected by man or war.

One thing I have to do before I die, I have to find someone I can share all that I am with and vise versa

Paris..

I have no idea how it is NOW..

In the 60's n 70's it felt like a real city.. many different communities..

There were the WIDE avenues.. the street side cafe's (we have them; Starbucks) heheh

There were the on the street piss places for males.. where you could see under the side and see their legs.. I found that a bit strange..

Good luck..

Australia. I have wanted to go there since I was a child, but have never made it.

New York City. Yes, I really want to visit the city that never sleeps. Walk the concrete canyons craning my neck like a hick from the sticks, gawking at the beautiful buildings. Climb the Empire State Building, walk the Brooklyn Bridge, see the different neighbourhoods, just explore!

I absolutely have to go see the Sistine Chapel. The work he did in there is amazing and I want to see it in person. One other place is Ireland, because I want to see where my ancestors came from. I'm glad to see you back and that you had such a great support system to help you through this month.

I think I am one of the real rare people who has no real desire to see it all. Then again in 40 years I have only moved 50 feet so traveling isn't a big goal of mine.

Last weekend I was extremely bored so I headed out on a whim with the intent of going to McMinnville Oregon (near Portland)to see the Spruce Goose. I filled up my tank, and then went about 5 miles, turned around and came home. A few years back I did similar. I had a week off of work and headed to Portland. I made it to Centrailia and spent the night then drove to Longview and stopped, checked into another motel and slept a few hours, then decided to go back home. I guess if I can't make it to a destination 3 hours from my home, I guess accross the world might be a little difficult.

I have to go back to Italy. Perhaps to live. Europe seems to represent more of what I think life should be about about than America. Probably just a case of the "grass being greener", but then there's football, Tuscany and well dressed Italian women to compensate (and satelite for my Maple Leafs).

I've lived on the beach. I've lived in the mountains. I've seen the countries of the Mediterranean. Each and every place is unique to it's own.
Never been to the South Seas or down under. Rio might be nice. Hawaii, that is still on the list, also. Wherever I go this time, I don't want to do it alone.

OMG! There are so many beautiful places in this world to see and discover that it is difficult for me to decide. The first place that comes to mind is Amsterdam. From the pictures I've seen and the articles I've read, it just seems like a place where I would fit in. If not there, what about Copenhagen? If you have the tickets, I have the time.....
