Wishful Wednesday: travel around the world

On this Wishful Wednesday, I wanted to share with you pictures of beautiful places I've been to and places I hope to one day see.

One of the places I'd love to travel to is Tuscany, Italy. My dream is to bike ride through the Tuscan countryside, next to the sunflowers and finish the day at a winery for some tastings. A girl can dream can't she?

When we were in Brazil last year, Sugarloaf mountain was simply breathtaking. Honey timed it so we were there to watch the sunset. That was a truly magical day and trip.
I've always wanted to swim in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia since I learned about it in school. Hopefully I can get there soon before we lose the coral completely.
Ahhh picture perfect Santorini Greece, I hear you calling to me and I hope to see you soon.
I took this picture on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. What struck me was the red sand walkways. I wasn't fast enough to catch the chickens in the picture that kept crossing the road.
If you haven't been to Toronto yet, try to make a trip to see this friendly and clean city. Take it from me, visit my childhood home in either the Spring or Fall.
Bonjour the streets of Paris, oh how I've missed you. I 'll try to be back soon, but this time I'll bring some of my blogging friends. (Check out my guest post for Ms. Fifi Flowers about my love for Paris.)
In high school, I loved living near Laguna Beach as its tucked away from the rest of Orange County. I wish I could be on the beach right now, don't you?
I took this picture of the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco on a cold and foggy day. The sun peered through the clouds long enough for me to take this photo.
We took this picture last year in Brazil at the Brazil vs. Bolivia game. The energy and pride of the crowd was infectious! Notice how the score was OxO and it stayed that way until Brazil scoooorrrreed. Thank you for traveling with me around the world. Don't forget to tell me, where you would like to travel on this Wishful Wednesday?

Thanks for the tour! In April 2010 we are planning a family vacation to Costa Rica - an eco trip!! Then in September 2010, must my husband and I are going to Italy. 3 weeks! One week in Rome and 2 weeks on the Amalfi coast - cooking lessons no less. I can't wait for both trips - one with our college and high school age children and one just the two of us.

We have always loved to travel and are spending our children's inheritance to do it!! LOL. Sounds (and looks) like you have the travel bug too.

Hello, even though I am on holiday, I couldn’t help logging on into my blog and that’s when I noticed that you had visited my cottage and had left a sweet comment for me. I just had to stop over your blog to thank you personally and to let you know how much kind comments like yours inspire me. You have a fascinating blog, full of interesting posts and lovely photos you also have a new follower…me. I will stop by your blog upon my return.
