Friday Five Grand Tour

Friday Five: Grand Tour
One of our original ring members, jo(e), wrote yesterday about a trip she and her sisters are taking overseas with their parents, to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Many other RevGals are headed for the Festival of Homiletics in the coming week (click here for information on a RevGals meetup!!). In honor of these upcoming trips, herewith your Grand Tour Friday Five.

Picture: (That would be me in the Red Dress)

Name five places that fall into the following categories:

1) Favorite Destination -- someplace you've visited once or often and would gladly go again
That would have to be the Southern Coast of Italy where BL and I traveled to last Spring. It was very bella. You can see the pictures here.

2) Unfavorite Destination -- someplace you wish you had never been (and why.)
Hmmm, there must be SOMEPLACE. Once to an AA retreat in Queens, NY. based on the teachings of Catholic Matt Talbot who apparently when he got sober, became very religious and wore a clice-a penitential chain with little spikes that bite into the flesh. I was very glad to get out of that place! (I am not into mortification of the flesh!)

3) Fantasy Destination -- someplace to visit if cost and/or time did not matter:
I think the Grand Tour, maybe by ship, to Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Bali etc. but I'm not greedy... Because I've never been there. And Bali because I've recently read Eat, Pray, Love

4) Fictional Destination -- someplace from a book or movie or other art or media form you would love to visit, although it exists only in imagination.
Probably Cold Comfort Farm because it seems like such a funny place, I'd like to meet the cows and I want to know what happened in the woodpile.

5) Funny Destination -- the funniest place name you've ever visited or want to visit
Probably Idora Park (an amusement park in Youngstown Ohio) now long closed. Where my mother used to take me. I loved it especially the roller coasters-the old wooden ones.

Oh, I haven't thought about Cold Comfort Farm in a long time. What a great movie!

I almost wrote my "don't want to go again" about a retreat as well! Hmmmm....Cold Comfort Farm would be great. Fun play.

mortification of the flesh -- yeee-ouch!

Bali is a good suggestion (I read Eat, Pray, Love too).

I've only been to northern Italy--sounds like I need to go back and visit the southern coast!!

Diane said...

RevAnne said...

Italy sounds great.
There's usually snakes in woodpiles, so I'll pass. Also I never read it.
