Guest Post:

Ten places I’d like to visit:


Tahiti. I’ve always had a thing for blue blue water.

Cairo. I love the whole “old city with crumbling walls thing", like in Aladdin.

The Maldives. Again, the idea of all that indigo ocean just, sitting there, waiting for me to swim in it.

Ottawa. It looked so clean and cool, like temperature-wise. The buildings look gorgeous.

Copenhagen. Seems like it’s full of smart people! And I want to see the Northern Lights.

Rome. I haven’t been the same since I saw Roman Holiday.

Florence. Want to see with my own eyes if it’s as beautiful as it looked in A Room With A View.

Okinawa. See above! And I’m half Japanese; it’s part of Japan, but has it’s own identity.

Stourhead. I guess technically this is Wiltshire, but you know. Darcy and Elizabeth in the pouring rain. Are they going to hit each other, or kiss??

Lake Como. The image of those mountains coming right up to the water is stunning. Plus George Clooney.

About the Author

My name is Tani Hanes, and I am a 51 year old substitute teacher. I'm from central California and am a recent transplant to New York City. The most important things to know about me are that I'm punctual, I love grammar and sushi, and I'm very intolerant of intolerance. The least important things to know about me are that I like to knit and I couldn't spell "acoustic" for 40 years. I've wanted to write since I was ten, and I finally did it. If you want to write, don't wait as long as I did, it's pointless, and very frustrating!

Awesome travel list! I've never been anywhere myself. Alaska and Ireland are at the top of my bucket list though. Congrats on the new book and the tour!
