Nowhere to go but everywhere – Part One

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about travels, past and future. What about you? I love so many places in one way or another for one reason or another. So many places I’d love to visit again, or for the first time. What about you? Where are some of your fave places? Where would you most like to visit next?

There was nowhere to go but everywhere.
—Jack Kerouac

Below is the first section of a list I came up with a year or so ago of some of my fave places. Do you see any overlaps here with places on your own list? Let me know. Let’s go somewhere together.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
—Mark Twain
