The One City in the World You Most Wish You Had Experienced
"We'll always have Paris"

The One City in the World You Most Wish You Had Experienced

eiffel-tower-paris-france-place-de-la-co

In all my years I've travelled broadly - to most of the most important cities in Canada and the USA, some in the Middle East, Asia, north Africa, the Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda and Europe, and although I've been to London, Madrid and Zurich, I was never in Rome or Paris.  Although Rome would have been important to see, the one that I most wish I had visited is Paris.  Home of the Lost Generation, the Bohemians, the Artists, the most famous art gallery in the world housing the most famous paintings, the Left Bank, the Eiffel Tower, the best cuisine in the world served with the most famous wines, Notre Dame, Moulin Rouge.  It is the city that Hitler ordered to be turned to rubble.  "However, the newly appointed Military Governor of Paris, General der Infanterie Dietrich von Choltitz, could not bring himself to destroy the most beautiful city in the world"   

"It is called the "City of Light" because it was a place of enlightenment in the 18th century. During this age of enlightenment, Paris became the center of education, philosophy and learning."

Paris is the one city in the whole world that I most wish I had experienced.

What is the ONE CITY in the world that you have never been to, that of all the cities in the world, is the one you most wish you could tour?  Please do your best to choose only one, AND GIVE A REASON OR REASONS WHY IT IS YOUR CHOICE.

I know it's really hard to choose when there are so many cities in the world that include incredible things to see and enjoy, but try hard to limit your choice to ONE ONLY, and GIVE A REASON OR REASONS WHY it is your choice.

For me, it is Glasgow in Scotland. One of my ancestors was King John I of Scotland. I always wanted to visit my ancestral place of origin but never got the chance. Now I'm too old and can't afford it.

Thirteen years ago I was 69 and gave almost everything I had of value to my kids and my ex-wife and moved to China for the adventure of my life.  Are you sure you can't do it?

I traced my ancestry to Robert the Bruce, and my dad's ancestors were Campbells.  My mom, sister, two elderly cousins, and I went to Scotland in 2015.  We drove all over the place, and visited Inveraray Castle, which was the clan seat of the Campbells (and a lot of other places).

For me, the best thing was the galleries - Tate and National.  I was able to see up close the original works of my favourite artist - J.M.W.Turner, especially my favourite painting, which was determined by a poll to be the favourite painting of all Brits - The Fighting Temeraire.

512

It's not every ship that a poem is written about...

The Fighting Temeraire

It was eight bells ringing, 
For the morning watch was done, 
And the gunner's lads were singing 
As they polished every gun. 
It was eight bells ringing, 
And the gunner's lads were singing, 
For the ship she rode a-swinging, 
As they polished every gun. 

Oh! to see the linstock lighting, 
Téméraire! Téméraire! 
Oh! to hear the round shot biting, 
Téméraire! Téméraire! 
Oh! to see the linstock lighting, 
And to hear the round shot biting, 
For we're all in love with fighting 
On the fighting Téméraire. 


It was noontide ringing, 
And the battle just begun, 
When the ship her way was winging, 
As they loaded every gun. 
It was noontide ringing, 
When the ship her way was winging, 
And the gunner's lads were singing 
As they loaded every gun. 

There'll be many grim and gory, 
Téméraire! Téméraire! 
There'll be few to tell the story, 
Téméraire! Téméraire! 
There'll be many grim and gory, 
There'll be few to tell the story, 
But we'll all be one in glory 
With the Fighting Téméraire. 


There's a far bell ringing 
At the setting of the sun, 
And a phantom voice is singing 
Of the great days done. 
There's a far bell ringing, 
And a phantom voice is singing 
Of renown for ever clinging 
To the great days done. 

Now the sunset breezes shiver, 
Téméraire! Téméraire! 
And she's fading down the river, 
Téméraire! Téméraire! 
Now the sunset's breezes shiver, 
And she's fading down the river, 
But in England's song for ever 
She's the Fighting Téméraire.

I've done London.  Hated it.  People were arrogant and unfriendly.  Forget the city and go out into the smaller villages and towns.  That is were we saw the better hospitality.

If you tour Europe, stay away from the "tourist attraction cities" like Paris and Rome.  The smaller towns and cities are were you can really see the culture of the countries you visit.

The worst thing about London (I'm talking about almost half a century ago) was the food.

However we always try to stay in B&Bs - that way you do get to meet people.  In London the landlady would shout up at us in the morning "Break your face".

When I was in Madrid, we dined at the posh top floor restaurant of the Plaza Hotel, the restaurant that Franco dined at, and Hitler did when he was there. The staff were in black tie tuxedos, white gloves.  The tables were set with white linen, crystal, real silver and incredible China.  I dared, for the first time on that trip not to drink only bottled water and drank the icewater poured by the white-gloved waiter, and the next day I was sick as a dog, and only because there was a doctor with us who gave me pills was I able to continue on the tour.

Having travled most of the world the one place that I missed and would love to go to. 

Timbu, Bhutan where by royal decree there is ''Gross National Happiness''.....Located high in the Himilayan mountains it's known as the ''Middle Kingdom''....

By law 60% of the country must be forest. 

Tourism is very limited so it is difficult to get a visa to visit. 

Excellent video on the Bhutan.

I was never in Rome or Paris.  Although Rome would have been important to see, the one that I most wish I had visited is Paris.  Home of the Lost Generation, the Bohemians, the Artists, the most famous art gallery in the world housing the most famous paintings, the Left Bank, the Eiffel Tower, the best cuisine in the world served with the most famous wines, Notre Dame, Moulin Rouge.  It is the city that Hitler ordered to be turned to rubble. "However, the newly appointed Military Governor of Paris, General der Infanterie Dietrich von Choltitz, could not bring himself to destroy the most beautiful city in the world" 

That says so much. I know Julia's. One of her favourite sayings is "Paris wasn't built in a day".

I don't know, there are so many places and I am a big fan of history.

One that might seem odd here is Isfahan/Esfahan Persia (Iran). Years after learning about the place, I learned one of my good friends was born there. It is a city of tile work born around a desert oasis supporting one of the worlds most wonderful squares of water fountains and pools, intricate tile work and deep history.

Then there is Troy. Yes, it really existed and some of the most intricate and beautiful hand crafted gold jewelry and dinning ware have been discovered there. Unfortunately, Heinrich Schliemann wrecked the site due to bull headed arrogance and personal greed. 

Then there is a small village in Switzerland a friend of mine came from many years ago. I do not even recall it's name, but she shared many pictures. In addition to a farm, her family ran an Inn, up scale restaurant and hot air balloon rides through the mountains. The picture I always recall first was of the town clock maker who refused to recognize day light savings time. He and all the clocks in his shop opperated on real time.

Then there is Chichen Itza. So much history. The Temple of Kukulcan and maybe more importantly the observatory at Chichen Itza. The prototype of observatories beginning in our modern times. Astronomers who developed a calendar than "modern" people (us) use. 

Just fascinating history.

Want to visit them all. But there can only be 1 winner.

Drum roll please...and the winner is the Mayan city of Tulum. Why? Simple pleasures. The sea and the ancient light house there to help sea faring navigators of ancient times.

I have been to Tulum. It's simple but beautiful ... and then the steps down the cliff to float in that gorgeous sea ...

I loved thinking about the people who lived there, who walked on those same stones as I was walking on ... did they ever think that this far in the future, people would be enjoying the ruins of their city, examining their bones, and thinking about them? Or would they be astonished to find that their city was no longer standing intact?

Good questions about their thought of the future. I am sure they didn't imagine the Spanish invasion. Yet it happened and the Spanish were amazed by Tulum and many other native cities.

If not for a certain Spanish priest, we would have the Mayan libraries available to us today and maybe we would know the answer to the questions you posed.

Instead, we only have 5 codices and the more rudimentary inscriptions of the buildings and monuments, etc.

I went on a LivingSocial deal - we also rappelled into a cenote, snorkeled through another cenote, ziplined through the Mayan jungle, and enjoyed a traditional Mayan meal hosted by a local family. It was all very cool stuff, it was my college graduation present for my "niece."  Stayed in a really nice boutique hotel in Playa del Carmen, about an hour away.

Oh, and we were treated to a Mayan religious ceremony in a cenote (I posted pictures of that back on Newsvine). That was hilarious - some of the girls in our group were Southern Baptists, and they were terrified they'd go to hell because of that. I had to explain to them that at this point, the Mayan religion is actually based on Christianity (of course it wasn't in English, so they didn't know what was being said) - and in either case, simply watching another culture's traditional ceremony is nothing like converting or participating in the ceremonies. That seemed to put them at ease.

You remind me of a fiction novel my daughter had to read when she was very ill with lyme disease. She was too fatigued by the lyme, so I read it to her and and we would discuss it along the way. I don't care if that is considered cheating, she was spent at the time and the school system had zero concept of what lyme disiease meant.

It was called Domain by Steve Alten.

The cenotes played an interesting role.

Funny about the ceremony story. Glad you saved their soles.

Interestingly enough many draw connections to the earlier Toltec ceremonies and the Mayan ceremonies. I think there is more discovery to be done there.

Also, interestingly enough the shop I work at now has a couple young ladies from Central America working in the office with me. I am surprised that they recognize themselves at native Mayan and not Spanish. This is a landmark in my mind.

Amazing. Historically, most have been ingrained to think they are Spanish. Even my best friend since the early 70s from Puerto Rico thought he was Spanish. He was 100% Taino if he was anything at all.

But to see these two in the office know they are Mayan is good to see.
