The T-Shirt Lady, one of my etsy blogger team colleagues has asked us to write about a dream vacation, so I'm really going to dream! If money, time and health were of no concern, I'd love to take a cruise around the world! I love the water, so I'd rather cruise leisurely than fly to all the places I'd want to see, although day-hops and helicopters are not out of the question.Cape Horn, then up the west coast of South America, through the Panama Canal and over to Europe via the Atlantic and North Sea to visit Finland and the other northern European countries along the Baltic. Heading back toward the United Kingdom I'd go through the English Channel and around the Iberian Peninsula into the Mediterranean, with excursions into the Adriatic and Black Seas. We could take the Suez Canal into the Red Sea and along the eastern coast of Africa, loop around Madagascar and then travel through the island countries of the Indian Ocean on to Australia. To return home it would be a big loop around Australia, along the western coast of Africa and straight across the Atlantic back to New York or Boston. Of course this trip doesn't go everywhere, but it sure would be fun and give me all the water travel I could want!
So, who's with me? What would be your favorite stop on our trip? If I had to pick one it would be Italy.
