    Would love to see all of this marble, but the longtime dream has been more limited. It is #1 on the bucket list.

    Europe for all winter with: one pair of skis, a backpack, and enough space on the credit card to enjoy it. No plan, just go. The ability is there, but like most family is the restraint.

    ! Stranger, it took me a minute to understand that when you said Marble you meant the planet and not the stone. I was wondering if there was a magnificent accumulation of stone marble somewhere that we should all see! !

    Here's some marble from a dream trip of mine.

    This was next to an overnight stop, the Hotel Stazionne, Châtillon, where we stayed to catch the bus the next morning on our way to Cervinia. It was at a marble yard just a few hundred meters up the road from the hotel.

    I enjoyed Morocco. I flew to Madrid from Turin, overnight sleeper (2 berths) to the coast, ferry to Morocco and another overnight sleeper (10 berths, memorable in a bad way). I'd like to go to the Atlas Mts. and ski.

There are wonders to find looking out a window at times. I just saw this beautiful blue bird . A lighter blue than the sky . It was really beautiful and not long ago In Winter I saw a huge beautiful Golden Eagle on a branch right next to the road on my morning drive up to the mountain.

    I keep my eyes open and find joy in life and the thought of far away places just makes my heart yearn for things that are beyond me right now.

    I would like to see England, Paris, Tibet, Istanbul, New Zealand and Australia, explore Incan ruins and countries we don't get to see like Iran . I would like to watch the sun rise from some far away Island and fish until it falls. I have dreams too , but I'm just to extravagant in them.

    My next adventure is gonna be driving in Seattle traffic for a while and I will find something worthwhile in each trip.
    Garry, I like your attitude. It's much the same with me. Find wonder in the little things within my reach.

    I have been lucky enough to have had some very nice vacations already. I would still like to take a Scandinavian Cruise through the Fjords. I am at the point now that I would like to see more of America. CA to see the redwoods, and I would like to make a trip to some of the National Parks, and to Alaska.

    I have been working near the Space Needle and the freeways are horrible with traffic so we have been driving down the middle of downtown Seattle to get home the old way. The people watching is awesome. We see something crazy, cool or just plain idiotic daily. People are so cool with their diversity. Seattle is a nice town for being a melting pot of ethnicity, cultural diversity and just unusual people.

    Garryz, if you have not done it go do the Underground Seattle tour down by 1st and Yeltzer. It is really interesting and shows you a lot of the city's less known history. Great not too expensive restaurants and clubs right around there too.

    I did that in the early 70's and was unguided. They were taking apart the old Public Safety building that housed the mayor's office, clinics and public services. We had access from a big dig for a neighboring foundation . It was dark and inhabited by those that have no homes. We explored around some and left them to their own devices. I lived in Seattle for most of my life and there is much below as the old plumbing had to be above ground because of the tide flats and they built the entries up to the second floors to meet the new roads`after the big fire.A bit
    of a time capsule that lingers in disrepair or renovated for the tourists in the Underground Seattle Tours
