I’m in the middle of the A-Z challenge, listing bucket lists of places that I’ve not been, but would I’d like to visit in my life.
Today, I’m thinking about places to visit that starts with a K. There’s Kansas, but I’ve been there many times. There’s Kalamazoo, but I’ve been there many more times. There are more exotic places like Kilimanjaro, where I could read Hemingway’s short story about death within the shadows of the mountain. Then there is Khartoum, the capital of Sudan. And there’s Kenya, a vast country in the heart of Africa. I’d enjoy visits to all of those places, but the place which makes my “bucket list” is Katmandu. And incredible trip would be to make my way overland from India, into the Himalayan Mountains and to the exotic capital of Nepal. Although I’d be interested in seeing some of the Hindu and Buddhist sites of the city, my main interest would be to head up into the mountains. Although I have long given up any desire of climbing the peaks of the Himalayas, I’d still like to gaze up at Mt. Everest. And then maybe an overland trip to my “L” bucket list destinations.
