Mia D is chosing the Friday themes in December and I already missed the first one, which was “Cookbooks”. Nevertheless, today I am participating – and the subject is a good one; “A dream trip”. The themes for the next weeks are “Christmas traditions” and “New Year resolutions”.
So, which is my dream trip? Actually, my dream trip has already come true – when I visited Petra in Jordan two years ago! It had been a dream to visit the city for obvious reasons (the name!) but also because I had been told [by various friends who had already visited it] that it was a beautiful place. I was not disappointed, the visit to Petra was wonderful and it truly is a magical place.
However, I do dream about making some other journeys – to Egypt, Vietnam, Greenland and Vancouver in Canada. My interest for all of these places have been inspired by people I have met who come from / live there.
There is an additional reason why I want to visit Vietnam – the food! I haven’t actually been to many Vietnamese restaurants but I have been served home-cooked [by Vietnamese friends] food several times and it is so yummy! I still remember the first time I ate Vietnamese food; on Boxing Day in England 1988! My parents and I were invited to my father’s German colleague’s house when his Parisian Vietnamese (and Swedish-speaking) girlfriend was visiting and she had made a lovely meal for us. That was the day I decided that I wanted to visit Vietnam – 20 years ago and I still haven’t made it there!
