Perhaps not whiskers on kittens but definitely raindrops on roses count among my favorite things. Travel is also way at the tip top of my favorite things list so I am busily compiling my 2015 list of must see places. In the past few years, we crossed Singapore, Cambodia and Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan and several cities in China off the ‘to see” list. (The travelogue along with hotel and attractions reviews is coming soon. Stay posted.)
Egypt is in the throes of civil unrest but perhaps we should chance it to see the pyramids as I have long wanted to do.
What about Timbuktu to see the site of Sankore University? Sankore University of Timbuktu, was one of three ancient centers of learning in Timbuktu, Mali, West Africa. During the 14th-16th century, Sankore University enrolled more foreign students than New York University today. Over a million manuscripts were recently re-discovered in Timbuktu, Mali and about 20 million more in West Africa. The variety of topics these manuscripts cover is phenomenal. I am fascinated by this.
What are a few of your favorite places? I would love to consider them in my next jaunt. The usual suspects have long been visited and on multiple occasions but everywhere in the world is fair game. Perhaps there is something in London that I haven’t seen or a perspective that I haven’t viewed my favorite city through so you feel I should do it again.
Packing my bags and ready to go. Won’t you join me?
