Friday Five: Grand Tour

This week's Friday Five is all about traveling. And here we go!

Name five places that fall into the following categories:

1) Favorite Destination -- someplace you've visited once or often and would gladly go again
It's a tie between the total opposites New York City and North Dakota! NYC because it is jam-packed with things to do (museums! theatre! restaurants!) and ND because it is not. My soul sometimes needs to breathe in the wide open spaces.

2) Unfavorite Destination -- someplace you wish you had never been (and why)
This is difficult because I'm usually a happy camper wherever I go. We were in Florida once when it was 1000 degrees and 1000% humidity so that might have come close...although I'm still glad we went.

3) Fantasy Destination -- someplace to visit if cost and/or time did not matter
Hmm... I think New Zealand might be fun.

4) Fictional Destination -- someplace from a book or movie or other art or media form you would love to visit, although it exists only in imagination
I would visit the Ewoks in the forest moon of Endor (yep--Star Wars).

5) Funny Destination -- the funniest place name you've ever visited or want to visit
Boring, Oregon! Guess they weren't thinking about attracting tourists when they named it.

Mmmm. New Zealand sounds beautiful when my cousin-who went there-described it. Let's go!

I had a college friend from New Zealand who told me that most university students there spent at least a year abroad, in part to underscore how special and wonderful their own part of the world is. And of course which country represented Middle Earth in the LOTR films?

Songbird said...

It's really called Boring? Huh.

Diane said...

Boring ORegon!!!

I don't know anything about New Zealand. Send pictures!

Jiff said...

I have two friends who've been to New Zealand this year and loved it.

We're all resonating with your New Zealand pick.
Great play!!

Boring, Oregon, huh?

I had a friend who grew up in Peculiar, Missouri. I wonder if there's a connection.

perhaps the next RevGal meetup should be in New Zealand! that was next on my list!

i am slightly jealous that you live only 75 miles from Cannon Beach, but how very wonderful!

i have the same feelings about loving both the wide open spaces and NYC. perhaps you could visit us when you are in need of some wide open spaces!

terrific play!

I didn't know there was anything boring about Oregon!

New Zealand would be wonderful to visit. The LOTR films are probably the best boost the NZ Tourist Board (or whatever it's called) has ever had.

Yay Endor! Put on a brass suit and you'll be treated as a God.

I didn't know you liked NYC that much, seems antithetical to your life philosophy!

david, probably has to do with the 'rev ss' influence -- her "both/and" thing! :)
