May has arrived which means today is the first day of BEDM 2015. That is Blog Every Day in May. I’m hoping that I get ahead of the curve and I manage to blog every day in May. Some days I’ll have the prompts from Elizabeth’s blog. Other days I’ll be back on the normal plan.
Your Dream Vacation
This is actually a LYBS prompt rather than a BEDM2015 prompt. I got stuck on completing today’s prompt from my phone so decided to shake it up. (BTW we have a landline!! Hopefully it means that the internet won’t be too far behind! Yeah!)
Okay this is a toughie because I have a humungous list of places I want to visit.
I want to do a trip like The Long Way Down or The Long Way Round. I can’t ride a motorbike so it would have to be by car and some bits are really not car friendly. I guess I could to something more like By Any Means.
Another pretty amazing trip would be taking the Trans-Siberian Railway across Russia. It starts at the Yaroslavsky Station in Moscow and travels nearly 10,000km to Vladisvostock on the east coast of Russia. I imagine the tickets could be a small fortune so that might be one we have to do in chunks or something like that. (On the map above, the red line is the historical railway).
There are more “standard” adventures I’d like to do.
Route 66 across America – clichéd I know but I want to do it.
Final trip to discuss is Land’s End to John O’Groats – Chris has done it on a bike twice. I did Land’s End to Birmingham before I had to head home. Chris carried on from Birmingham all the way to John O’Groats in Scotland on a bicycle. You can read the posts that we did manage to write here.
