Places to Visit

The Day 5 writing challenge suggests writing about a place that you'd live that you've never visited.
I'm not certain that I have one of those. However, there are certainly plenty of places that I'd like to visit.

Most of you already know that I am particularly fond of beaches of Mexico. I should say that I'm happy that our Zihautanejo trip was last month instead of last week! We are planning another trip to Cancun for January (this will be our third visit to Cancun). Sometime I'd like to visit the beaches of Oaxaca.

I would really like to take a trip Down Under and visit my family in Australia. Traveling to my mother's native Philippine Islands is also appealing to me. (If it was just me, I might look into to buying one of the many islands that are for sale in the Philippines and live out life as a lonely hermit.) I think I'd much rather travel to the South Pacific (Philippines, Guam, Indonesia, Malaysia) than to Europe. I'm not sure why it's that way. It just is.

Costa Rica is on my list of places to visit, as is Belize.
We've not visited any of the Carribbean island nations (other than Jamaica and the Dominican Republic) and I'm pretty certain that I would enjoy that.
A warm, sunny beach is about all it takes to entice me to travel to a place.

We've never planned a trip with another couple and I'm not sure that I really want to. I like my lazy time and I like not having to consider what other people want to do.
I would like to plan a family trip with my kids and their spouses. I think that would be a blast!

Maybe if I lived on or near a sunny beach I'd be more interested in traveling to the mountains or other land locked destinations. For now, I want and ocean beach, plenty of warm sunshine and some good food.

I would think the Philippine Islands would be a prime destination for you.

The Caribbean is mostly affordable. Cancun must be heavenly!
