Another late post today, which you can feel free to assume comes after a rather busy day. Anyway, the above quote is from a smashing review of Pink by Lili Wilkinson, who’s been sharing some lovely shots from her trip to the UK on her Twitter feed. Makes me nostalgic for my own days running around the UK, poor but perfect, as the movie says.
So — where have you been that you want to explore again, older, wiser, and perhaps with a different traveling companion? I’m very keen to drag Rexroth with me to the West of Ireland, and some of my favorite pubs in the world. You?

I never get tired of Chicago. I've been four times in my life and each time I've discovered something different. I'd also like to return to San Franciscoas. I fell in love with the city when I was just a little girl and I wonder if the appeal would hold up as an adult.
Also! Germany! I was born there and when I was little we'd visit family often, but my last trip was when I was eleven. I'd LOVE to see my family and explore Berlin.
I second Ireland. Though in my case it's Northern Ireland. Giant's Causeway, Antrim Round Tower, Dunluce Castle. Sigh.
I spent a summer in Spain the year I turned 20. In some ways it was life changing and it's something I've always wanted to explore in my writing. Now that I'm married and a mom, I would love to go back and see how things have changed and how they are the same, for me and for the place.
I want to go back to Cornwall–only this time with the *good* husband. And Italy.
I spent a lot of my childhood and teen years in England. I realize it's been 15 years since I was last there. I can't believe my tween daughter hasn't ever been there. That's just wrong! I've got to take her so that we can share that daydreamy look in our eyes.
I lived and worked in the west part of Ireland. I'd love to go back and this time bring the husband. And actually tour instead of work!
I would like to visit Russia again, specifically Moscow. I went when I was in ninth grade on a missions trip and I don't think I fully appreciated the history and beauty of the city (mostly because I didn't know said history very well).
Ooh, Egypt with my husband. Now that sounds like a winning combination.
Paris! I spent a weekend there last fall and definately didn't get enough of it. I could spend days getting lost in the Louvre, or just wandering the streets. My taste of it has gotten me hungry for more!
