You solved the mystery of missing Dairy Queen last Saturday (it burned down) and I come to you again, just a week later, for more help.
Where should I go on vacation?
Here's the deal. After work this Friday I am off for nine days. As of right now I have no plans and will most likely stay home like I usually do. But I am also itching to put this tough week behind me and have some fun somewhere.
I love road trips. I love visiting museums and historical sites. I enjoy anything that is the World's Largest. I especially appreciate neat photo-taking opportunities.
Now the problem. Nearly all of the places that spring to mind when I think about the cities I most want to visit are Northern Hemisphere cold weather places where a visit in March is half the experience of a visit in summer or autumn.
Ottawa. That was my big early brainstorm for this trip. I have visited much of Canada, from Victoria to Edmonton to Montreal but have not yet traveled to that great country's capital. I've read much about its beautiful architecture, the exquisite Rideau Canal, the maple syrup farms, the Canadian Currency Museum and on an on.
Oh, and it's 10 degrees there this morning (yes, Fahrenheit. I checked). And quite a bit further north than Seattle meaning even shorter days in which to sight see. And that's the same problem with the other places on my wish list from Nova Scotia to Helsinki.
Expand my world. What is the great vacation destination I don't know about and why? Where do you want me blogging from next weekend?
