#BBTWords Prompt... 5 Favourite Vacation Locations

by - Friday, August 09, 2013

Another Bring Back the Words prompt from Ginger at Ramble, Ramble... and another one where I don't know if I'll be able to narrow down my list to just the number she lists!

I'm lucky that I've been able to travel a lot in the last 6-7 years.  As a kid we went to England to visit my biodad's family, to Disneyland with my mom and brother, and to Camp Tsoona with Girl Guides, but that's about it except for visiting family and stuff.  We weren't a camping family - I remember going with a friend to Little Qualicum Falls one summer, and I enjoyed myself... but I'm a fairweather camper.  I very much like showering and I hate having dirty hair.  So - if you can hook me up with a campsite that has a shower (preferably with hot water) and a flush toilet, I'm your girl.

That being said, I don't like spending a lot of money travelling... my last three big trips (with the exception of my cruise) were hostel-based, sharing rooms to save on cash.  I think I'm getting to the age where I want a bit more privacy, and while I doubt I'll give up on hostels completely, I think I'll spend the extra cash to get a private room or a double. My sanity depends on it.

Okay... back to the reason for this post - my top 5 favourite vacation locations.  Here goes (in no particular order)...

1. Ireland (and Northern Ireland)
2. London, England
3. Berlin, Germany
4. Switzerland
5. Dubrovnik, Croatia

Honourable mentions go to... Edinburgh, Sarajevo, Budpest, Las Vegas, Istanbul and the Dominican Republic.
