#568 Let's make this our regular picnic destination...






Within Secondlife there are a myriad of places you can have a picnic and the one that I showcase for you today is at the gorgeous new picnic destination of Neva River Village.


I have found though the top 5 picnic spots listed on National Geographic around the world and the foods available to eat there, in which I share these with you. Not in any particular order, here are the top 5 listed by National Geographic as the must places to visit for a picnic. I note though that Australia isn't there.. need to have a word with National Geographic :D.
1) Huayna Picchu, Peru


At an elevation of nearly 9,000 feet, the view from atop this peak, which towers over the 15th-century ruins of Machu Picchu, is breathtaking in a number of ways. A steep, slippery climb to this rocky summit is a nerve-racking effort—one instantly rewarded with a panoramic perspective of the Urubamba River Valley and the famed city of the Inca. So what to eat? Instead, a celebratory Inca Kola and a pleasantly portable butifarras—a sandwich of Peruvian ham, onions, and chili peppers, and lime.
2) Milford Sound, South Island, New Zealand


Rain forests hug dramatic cliffs, waterfalls cascade into rivers, and 4,000-foot rocky peaks tower over a deep fjord that has become New Zealand's most famous destination. Yes, it's on the tourist trail, but remote Milford Sound—within the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage site—retains a grandeur that visitors and rain (182 days of it each year) Pack a picnic and hop aboard a two-hour boat tour of the awe-inspiring sound or kayak around the coastline for a floating lunch party. What to pack? How about traditional Kiwi eats such as Anzac biscuits, colonial goose (roast leg of lamb), and a bottle of Marlborough sauvignon blanc.
3) Villa Borghese Gardens, Rome, Italy


Olives, pizza bianca, marinated artichokes, salami, and—of course—a bottle of wine are all it takes to make a picnic break from the ancient ruins and Renaissance highlights of Rome.. The Villa Borghese gardens near the Piazza del Popolo, is a picnic-perfect landscape for escape. The Spanish Steps lead up to this English-style garden, but the romantic feel of the urban park is all-Italian.
4) Point Reyes National Seashore, Point Reyes Station, California


Now where do you go for a simple outdoor meal in the States? This spectacular nature preserve located on a 70,000-acre peninsula north of San Francisco is rich in wildlife, from raptors to elk, and bordered by a coastline favored by elephant seals.
5) Jardin des Tuileries, Paris, France


Fountains, sculptures, two museums and countless comfortable chairs make this garden on the perimeter of the Musée du Louvre a surprisingly tranquil space for staging your own déjeuner du l'herbe. With the Seine on one side and Rue de Rivoli on the other, the park is a well-placed rest stop. Stop by patisserie Angelina to pick up a Mont Blanc cake (cream, meringue, and chestnut paste), then relax under a tree for a few blissful minutes or hours. What better place to be that in France.
So have you been to any of these destinations as yet? I think if I had a picnic in Rome or Paris, I wouldn't leave!!
