5 Places I've Never Been (And Why I Want To Go)
1. Brazil Brazil holds many mysteries for me. The mystery of unknown family members and places yet to be discovered. Hearing with fondness the stories of my mom's homeland, the places, the family I have yet to meet. The language that is musical to my ears but remains sadly foreign to me. Yes Brasil as they spell it, is at the top of my list. Brazil going back to my roots.
2. Italy I am ready to explore Rome, Florence and Venice, which may be considered a traditional tour. Adding in a once in a lifetime experience with cooking classes, culinary excursions and unique cultural experiences. A trip to Italy would not be complete for me without Biblical Italy. 3. Bora Bora Bora Bora summons me with the call of romance, clear blue ocean and amazing over water bungalows in a tropical paradise. It 's the most famous of the French Polynesia's Leeward Islands. It's on my list to celebrate an upcoming wedding anniversary. I have been blessed to be married to an awesome, supportive , loving, handsome Christian man for over 36 years. It will be an amazing celebration.
4. Ghana On a recent blog post on Travel With Eva - Every Vacation has A Story, Ghana was highlighted. Two sisters shared their story of how DNA testing led them to discover Ghana. It reignited my desire to discover it's culture and heritage. A highlight, I am looking forward to is visiting the slave forts and castles bringing written history alive.
Panama is another destination that holds a family connection.
The Panama canal was one of the most daring and innovative accomplishment at the turn of the 20th century. My grandfather was one of the many men who risked their lives to build this engineering marvel.
