So I have a world map in my room in between my bed and my closet. I see it every night before I go to bed and I see it every time I open my closet. It is a reminder to myself that is a lot of ground I want to cover before I die . . .the reminder to travel often.
When I was young girl we used to get National Geographic Magazines in the mail and 25% of the books on the shelves were NatlGeo Books. I grew up pouring over the maps similar to the one that hangs on my wall. It always gave me two things–beautiful pictures and places to dream about.
Just a few days ago I was staring at my map again–wondering what some places must be like and if fate made the choice–where would I go next. Just like that I decided to close my eyes and see where my finger pointed me toward next.
Below are 5 places that I have been pointed toward and a National Geographic article to get the ideas flowing about the country I seem destined to visit.
Where would you like to go?

Beautiful pictures and definitely interesting places to visit! This time of year I always think about your visit to Ireland, though, and I hope to get there some day myself! All you need to do is hook up with Michael and Michelle and you’ll see the entire world!!
That is true. Travel is something I want to start devoting more and more of my time to.
Oh Rio! I love that city! Brazil is definitely worth the visit!
I do hope to get down there at some point.
