There’s a huge list of world activities coming our way in 2012. We don’t have the budget to go to most of them (read: 99% of them), but if we could here are the three we still wouldn’t miss.
1. London’s Olympics
Ever since I was a little girl I’ve wanted to go to the Summer Olympics. Surely sitting at a stadium or inside an arena for hours would get boring, but I have a weird thing about wanted to BE there. Even if I do have to sit through 30 heats of the 100 meter backstroke.
Plus, the Queen celebrates 60 years on the throne this year. How can you not go for a visit?
2. Washington, DC
I’m sorry but there is nothing like being in Washington, D.C. on a presidential election night. Four years ago I sat in a bar in Washington’s Eastern Market neighborhood watching the results roll in. As each state was called the crowd cheered or booed (depending on their party), and a sense of neighborliness filled the bar. When the election was finally called people poured into the streets to celebrate. A city of Political Geeks + Presidential Election = Fun.
3. Palenque, Tikal, Chichen Itza, Copan
If the Mayan’s world is going to end on December 21, 2012, you better check it out while the temples are still there. Their empire stretched from Mexico to Honduras so I suggest you get a move on!
What places or events do you want to go to this year?
