Thursday Threesomes: Travelin’ Shoes

On the Thursday Threesome, I’ll choose a theme and describe three things that have to do with that theme. Next weekend, I shall be tripping off for a long weekend, which will also include a long 9-hour drive. Whee! Hopefully I’m not running around trying to get everything done at the last minute, but you are well warned if I disappear for the weekend. This Thursday is three places I’ve been, but want to go back:

  1. Ithaca NY: I got my BA at Ithaca College, and I knew the moment I walked into Dillingham Center (the theatre department) that that’s where I wanted to be. Of course, the view of Cayuga Lake with the fountains didn’t hurt. Plus, the city itself was a fantastic mix of small town/college town/every town, and I just fell in love with it. So even though the snow would routinely be over my head, I wouldn’t hesitate if you gave me a lake house there.
  2. Paris: Yes, I know this will probably be the chiche answer, but I only had 1 full day in Paris the time I visited. I did get to see the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and the Tour Eiffel, but there’s so much more! Catacombs! Montmarte! Moliere’s grave!
  3. Bellagio (Las Vegas): And for my decadent answer, I would love to be a VIP out at the Bellagio. I used to work there, in the basement, which was still pretty swank. Oh, and I can tell you specificially what I would like there… To stay in one of the Villas, to go see O again, to eat at Sensi and Le Cirque, and have some crepes at Jean Phillipe. *sigh*

Have an idea for a Thursday Threesome? Leave a comment, and I’ll see what I can do!
