In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “No, Thanks.”

Is there a place in the world you never want to visit? Where, and why not?


I am an externally adventurous person and the bucket list I have is extensive and I cannot imagine any place on the planet I would not like to visit.

However, to answer this prompt, I will list the following locations, I will not visit and are not on my bucket list. The first is active volcanos, the second is former Nuclear reactor sites, and third current war ravished areas.

The reasons why I would not, are simple, they are too dangerous. I have survived some adventures in my life and falling into a volcano, visiting a former Nuclear site is not good for my skin and the war ravished areas are just a recipe for not returning home.

These, never to visit locations have a sense of danger for which I will rely on some else’s interpretation and photos and call that a visit.

I believe everything else is definitely worth a visit, although I am not a cold weather fan and any visit to a cold climate location, meaning the temperature drops below 50 degrees during the night. For these locations, I would love to step out of a plane view the surroundings, return to the plane and take off.

I will keep my bucket list simple, in a warm climate, without the threat of volcanos, and former nuclear reactor sites. “No thank you” to the locations I listed.
