Travel Wish List for 2013

Here are some places I CAN NOT wait to visit

Norway-Preachers Rock, Preikestolen and Norway-Alesund, India for Holi- The Festival of Colors, and Taiwan for the Sky Latern Festival

Preachers Rock, Preikestolen Norway- A massive Cliff 82 feet by 82 feet where over 130,000 people hike to Preikestolen. I want to do this hike!

Holi- The Festival of Colors- India. This Festival around mid March is where people in India and countries with Hindu origin celebrate Holi or the triumph of good over evil. The festival involves the loss of inhibitions as people chase each other around and playfully splash paint and water on each other while lighting bonfires to celebrate Pralada. 

Taiwan for the Sky Lantern Festival- During this time of year oiled rice paper attached to a bamboo frame is filled with a small candle and is airborne for as long as the candle stays lit! They were first used back in the 3rd century as a signaling balloon and go back to the Han Dynasty which existed some 2000 years ago. It is on the 15th day of the first lunar month in the Chinese calendar or the last day of the Chinese New Year Festivals (Feb 24 2013)

Alesund, Norway- This place just looks gorgeous, no?
