For quite some time now I’ve been considering a backpacking tour of America. Obviously this is, for the moment, something of a pipe dream. Our family and financial situation mean that it would have to wait for a very long time, or possibly not happen at all.
However that does not stop me dreaming about it, and I’ve decided to make a note of some of the places I’d like to go and things I’d like to do.
Memphis, Tennessee. Home of The King! Enough said.
Wal-Mart. Any Wal-Mart, anywhere. We hear a lot about the people who shop there, and I’d like to see them for myself!
Chicago, Illinois. I’m not quite sure why, I guess I’m just fascinated by hearing about how a once-grand city has gone totally downhill.
‘Area 51’. Not because I really believe I’ll see anything spectacular or sinister, but I guess it’s just one of those things… if you’ve ever been an X-Files fan, you’ve just got to go there!
Yellowstone National Park. Because it sounds incredible.
Louisiana. Because, ZOMG, swamps and Cajuns and jazz and other astonishing things.
Those are the things that spring immediately to mind, in no particular order. Yes, I am aware that it is sad to include a trip to Wal-Mart. However, no doubt the list will grow, and one day I’ll look at this blog and realise my trip is all planned out!
