C List The current list is really a discover America list, having been to all the cities I desired.
Upstate New York 2009 ♥♥♥♥1/2+
I needed to check this out if I was going to seek early retirement here to start writing my books.
Philadelphia 2007 ♥♥
America’s history so was worth the early morning start for a Christmas time day trip
Washington 2008 ♥♥♥♥
……actually who am I kidding. It’s all about the West Wing, the best drama ever made, along with my bizarre curiosity with the American presidency.
Chicago – would have been here or Dallas for my birthday this year if I was in the USA
Carolina – north and south
South – Buenos Aires
D list – all 50 US states?
Places I’ve been but was never really bothered about
India – having said that, it’s my mother country so had I not gone when I was too young to really appreciate it, I would have wanted to go at least once.
Alicante – only to visit a retired friend who has now married and moved to far flung and cold Eastern Canada
Madrid – only to visit a friend and then again for her pre-wedding party. Barcelona is immensely better.
Montreal – the most recent trip purely as its practical meeting place for a US outcast (me) and a New Yorker (my very good-natured boyfriend)
Atlanta – a dull 24 hours here on route to New Orleans etc. Mobile was equally dull on the same trip.
Places I was curious to go but curious no more – Paris, Dublin
Underrated – Providence, Banff,
Overrated – New Orleans
Can’t wait to go back to –
1. San Francisco
2. Rhode Island
Used to be on the maybe list but really not bothered now – Tokyo, Hong Kong
Important days spent in New York
New Year 2008 (although don’t/didn’t celebrate)
St Patricks 2006/09
(And Valentines 2009 although that’s not really ‘important’)
July 4th – ah, that was meant to be 2009…..
PS I remembered about Sicily, however, it’s not on the list as it’s my honeymoon destination. I’m saving it for if and when I get married again.
