Thanks to one and all for your votes on which country, state and county we should be adding next to Packabook. And I’m pleased to say, the results are in… Here is the current tally following the latest voting.
As you can see – our winning country is Argentina with three votes. A big thank you to Marla and South American Travel (who may be a little biased!) for their votes this time round, and Bea who put in a previous vote. I’m really looking forward to immersing myself in the land of the tango for a while and seeing what I can find.
For the USA – we are heading off into the desert to Arizona. I’ve already done a bit of investigating and have discovered a hefty haul of fiction for this one. I hope you all have your water bottles ready, we may need to spend some time there! Voting thanks to Vera, Jackie and MC… And how’s this for a co-incidence – there is a Colorado River in both Argentina and Arizona!
In the UK – it came down to a tie between Kent and Dorset…so it was time to get out the Nepalese hat and pick one out.
And as you can see from the photos, Dorset got the nod. Kirsten and Deborah – this one is for you. Dorset is situated in the south-west of England, and it has some wonderful countryside. In fact, three quarters of its coastline is a World Heritage Site. And given it is the birthplace of the wonderful Thomas Hardy I think we have some treats in store. I do not believe Dorset possesses a Colorado River unfortunately, but it does have a River Piddle, which is infinitely more entertaining…
Right – I’m off to explore…. See you on the other side with my discoveries. In the meantime – if you have any suggestions for any of these places, I’d love to hear about them in the comments…or feel free to drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
