Oh the shame! The epic fail! The complete and utter mortification!
I fell asleep whilst blogging last night. I had planned on taking you all on a whirlwind road trip around the stunning US state of Colorado but now, with only an hour to spare before I have to be at school, we must make alternative and slightly shorter travel plans.
I therefore have a question to pose to you my delicious Warriors:
Out of all the countries that you have visited thus far during your lifetime which one is your favourite and why? Which destination has captured your imagination and your heart and beckons you to return?
One country I have visited stands supreme in my mind in terms of the people, the food, the culture and the overall sense of awe and adventure. I had wanted to go there for a very, very long time. One day, at the age of 30, I was in my classroom and an article I was reading with my students featured this particular country. It called to me once again, deep within my soul, and this time I answered the call. That very lunchtime I took to the internet, found a 2 week humanitarian project I could undertake and "CLICK!" - I was off to...
That was April of 2009 and I was so throughly enchanted by this iconically beautiful country that I returned in July of 2009. And I have every intention or going back for a third visit when the time is right, such is the hold that Peru has on my little Scottish heart. And these are just a few of the reasons why:
Don't you just want to eat her alive?? Look at those eyes!!! I could very easily have come home with a suitcase full of Peruvian children but I resisted the urge. Child trafficking is frowned upon in general society.
NOW OVER TO YOU MY WARRIORS!
Please post a picture of your favourite destination but more importantly tell me WHY it is so very special to you! I can't wait to be taken around the world, Warrior style!!
Ginger Warrior, over and out.
