A List of Places You’d Like to Visit

Ah, travel. It’s something I haven’t done much of recently (at least, not when it’s for non-moving purposes) but I still enjoy traveling to new places. I started compiling a list of places I’d like to visit, but haven’t gotten around to just yet. And here it is, for your entertainment.

  • San Francisco. SF was high on my list for a visit back in 2001, but Houston won out (I knew someone there, and didn’t in SF.) I mostly want to go and check out all the techie, geeky stuff and see how the city vibe is… I’ve only heard good things about SF.
  • Boston. I think I would like New England a heck of a lot, and I really want to check out the underground highways. And oh yeah, all that historical crap too.
  • New York City. This one surprised me: I actually want to visit NYC now. I had a long-standing opinion that I would never want to visit NYC, but now I kind of do. I want to see a city much bigger than Chicago and experience that beauty-cum-chaos.
  • London. Another one I never thought I’d say, but frankly my wife has convinced me that I’d like to visit it. So why not?
  • Canada, probably Toronto. Throwing a whole country in here is a bit sloppy, but Toronto would be a fine place to start. I need to see what it’s like in Canada. Is it really cleaner? Are they really nuts about hockey? Do they all say “eh” or is that overblown? Friends have gone and liked it, but I’d like to see it for myself.

I know these are primarily in the US, but you gotta start somewhere. Now when will this travel take place? Who knows. But it’d be nice to knock out at least one during 2005. Feel free to share your lists, too.
