My camel’s shadow as I journey into the Sahara
I like the slant of this travel list: 49 journeys that’ll change your life.
On the list, they cram in as many SMTs as possible–that’s suggested modes of transport. Some of the modes they highlighted that caught my eye: helicopter, yak, ice skates, Harley, reindeer sled, and rickshaw.
I guess it doesn’t matter how you get there, as long as you get there. Strike that–I want to ride a Harley and a reindeer sled and a rickshaw. (Not the Harley, though, that’s too scary. Maybe a Vespa?)
Check out the list for blurbs on a yak safari in Mongolia, an ice skating commute in Ottawa, a national reserve in Kenya, the Great Wall of China, and the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland.
Of all the trips, I most dream of returning to Ireland and traveling around the Dingle Peninsula. When we couldn’t fit it in during our jam-packed trip to Ireland years ago, I knew I would have to go back.
My sons David and Daniel atop an elephant in Thailand
I’ve done three of their suggested journeys already via elephant, camel, and foot. (Just 46 to go?)
- Chiang Mai Hill Country, Thailand. SMT: Elephant
- Merzouga to Erg Chebbi, Morocco. SMT: Camel
- The Inca Trail, Peru. SMT: Foot
Which journey do you most dream of taking (and by what mode of transport)?
