Birthday Wish List

In a week's time, I will celebrate yet, another birthday. The big 27 this time, so although it isn't a milestone, it's another year older.

So, what is on my lovely birthday list you may ask? Well, not much to be honest. I'm not one for new technologies (my co-workers can attest to that); however, I am one for travel (surprise, surprise). One of the first things I always ask for, whether it is for my birthday or for Christmas is air miles. My sister so graciously bought me air miles as part of my Christmas gift this past year - a gift that proved quite beneficial in the purchase of my airplane ticket to Ireland.

So, guess what? Air miles top the list again this year! I'm already formulating where I want to go next and have decided that my next trip (God willing) will be to Germany and Poland. If you've followed this blog, you know that I am a history fanatic, so naturally, these two countries are ideal locations for my next trip.

First of all, my sister traveled to Germany many years ago and spoke nothing but good things about the country. My main points of interest will be Berlin and Munich, but I want to visit the Bavarian Alps as well.  Of course, I couldn't leave this country without seeing and visiting the concentration camp, Dachau. I've known numerous people who have visited this humbling site...needless to say, I want to see it as well.

Secondly, I have planned to visit Poland for many years now. After doing extensive research, I have learned the extent to which the Polish people have gone to make their country appealing to visitors. Naturally, visiting Krakow and Warsaw are my two main points of interest, and well...if I'm there, I must see Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Since it will be some time before I can make this trip a reality, in the mean time, my birthday wishes will be receiving air miles as my gifts. The more, the better obviously, but I'll take as many as I can get.

Of course, I could always use a day at the spa too!

I had no idea you could receive air miles as a gift! That is absolutely brilliant!
