I've been to many of the top ten, and they are wonderful places to live. If I had it to do over, I'd be born in New Zealand.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, December 12, 2012 7:52 PM

So, why isn't America in the Top Ten for 2013? Which country do you think is at the top of the list...one that is considered 'boring' or alluring? I wasn't really surprised for the one at the top is actually one I have visited and definitely would go back at the first available opportunity.

About Those Acorns | Your Great Outdoors

About Those Acorns | Your Great Outdoors | Ireland Travel | Scoop.it

Awakenings and her sister site, catnipoflife, are both conscientious about life's connections to the past and those subtle appearances that expose nature as a diamond in the rough. There is so much raw beauty surrounding us on a daily basis that too often goes completely unnoticed.

Believe it or not, acorns are quite a controversial subject around here. Everyone believes absolutely that huge acorns predict a heavy winter.
