They say daydreaming leads you to greatness. After being challenged to share her own daydreams about her ultimate occupation (which of course she did in her own inimitable style), Gluestick Mum has brought me in on the Daydreams Challenge inquiring about my ultimate holiday/vacation. Where would I go? Who would I take? What would we do? Well, thanks to GSM for asking….it’s alot of fun to think about!
Probably no one would believe my actual dream list at this point, but I’m going to share my top three with you now.
I’m not much of a fan of booking tours for vacations. I don’t mind a tour of a building or something, but generally speaking I like to do the planning for our holidays on my own. However, I’d absolutely love to go to Churchill in Manitoba, Canada, and experience one of the Polar Bear Adventures!
How cool (excuse very bad weather pun) would it be to take off in one of these tundra buggies
and go in search of polar bears?! I think it would be incredible to see the arctic landscapes of the Canadian Shield and awesome up-close views of the bears! Can you imagine one of these views?
Or actually being this close?
Plus, they also say they come across other animals on their tours like: Caribou, Arctic Fox, Wolves, Arctic Hares, Lemmings, Snowy Owls, Gyrfalcons, and other arctic birds. How could anyone not want to see this if they had the chance?
It’s the ultimate fox hunt in my opinion!
And, my guys would love the helicopter tour offered by some of the groups there as well!
Yep, definitely this would be a good one for us! It’s on my bucket list!
Barring that, the next great adventure I’d choose would be ICEBERG CAVES…..actually exploring under icebergs!
Again, I’d not be able to manage this one on my own, but definitely I’d trade off the planning for this experience! The one I’m most interested is from the tour at Breiðamerkurjökull glacier and its caves in Iceland.
Okay, there’s the whole issue of the HOLE and getting down into the iceberg…..
But once we’re past that……how could anyone pass up the chance to see and photograph views like this!
Sadly for everyone, they say these icebergs are getting smaller every year and that these tours won’t be available someday. I’m hoping we can make it there before they disappear!
Lastly, I guess what I’d most like to do is to see more of this world and meet more people I like. So my last daydream holiday would be a MEETING BLOGGERS ROAD TRIP where I basically just do the whole planes, trains, and automobiles thing all around the world meeting up with all my blogosphere friends.
This would certainly take me from one side of this world to the other! Of course, you’d all have to put me up for the night and feed me once I got to you….kind of like a blogging Father (actually Mother) Christmas on his/her trip around the world except it would probably take me the rest of my life to meet everyone!
Yep, I can daydream….it’s just too bad things like jobs, schedules, money, time, and age get in the way of such magnificent dreams, isn’t it?
Passing the challenge on, I’m just going to prompt everyone to pick up this challenge and give us your take on what your ultimate vacation would be. It’s alot of fun to think about actually. Specifically, though, I’d like to invite in on this challenge so that I can learn more about them:
