Things Yet Experienced…but someday

I've decided to put a list of things I'd like to do together.  Sure, some are outrageous and bizarre, others mundane and ordinary…ok…never mind…none of these locations are mundane.

Here we go:

1. Transylvania - I'd love to travel to Transylvania following the route that Jonathan Harker took in the novel, Dracula.  Beware the Borgo Pass!

2. Waitomo Caves in New Zealand - Black water rafting in New Zealand - subterranean rafting…with miners hats and glowworms on the cave ceilings!

3. Flea Marketing in San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina - artefacts, malbec, steak…and tango!

4. Krampus Nacht in Austria - the annual Xmas festival with lots of devils looking for those who have been naughty.

5. Noche de los Rabanos, Oaxaca Mexico - Night of the Radishes, the Oaxacan harvest celebration where radishes are not just a food but an piece of art.

6. Havana, Cuba - old cars, revolutionary artists, and Santaria. 

7. Sedlec Ossuary, Czech Republic - I never made it here last time I was in Prague, it's a church whose interior is ornately adorned using human bones.

8.The Haunted Island of Poveglia, Venice, Italy - Venice would be a treat on it's own but Poveglia was is a small island nearby, said to be haunted.  Why you ask?  This is where all the plague victims went.   Eerie.

9. Hagia Sophia, Istanbul - I love places the exhibit the historic and artist clash of cultures…Istanbul…Constantinople…Instanbul.

10. The Alnwick Poison Garden and Whitby, UK- Whitby is a location Dracula buffs might be familiar with…it's the seaside village where Dracula's ship crashes ashore.  Just up the road about twenty km is a strange botanical garden that only features deadly plants!  Don't even sniff them!

So that's my list.  Don't be surprised if someday, I put together a little excursion in any or all of these locations.  I'm ready to travel…how bout you?
