To infinity and beyond...

I really don't think I can properly express how much my body is craving a good dose of traveling right now. Realizing I've just returned from two years of living in England, I assume this previous statement potentially sounds greedy. I don't care. I need a fix and I'm willing to do most anything to solve this. Immediate gratification? Absolutely. Passports and plane tickets are my drugs of choice and my last dealer and I finished our contract together. I need another "friend" who gets me things.

Realistically speaking, there probably won't be any good travels in store for me in the near future. Trying to save money to buy a car (even the cheapest I can find), move into an apartment and pay school loans doesn't leave much room for extravagant explorations. However, I've always been dreamer. In honor of my aspirations, I thought I'd take the time to list a few of the places I'm yearning for. In no particular order, I give you:

"Twenty-Six Terrific Travel Temptations"
1. Montreal, Canada
2. Norwegian Fjords
3. Iceland
4. Empangini, South Africa
5. Cambodia
6. Santiago, Chile
7. Lisbon, Portugal
8. India (Taj Mahal)
9. Moscow, Russia
10. Dubai
11. Cinque Terra, Italy
12. Thailand
13. Greek Isles
14. Japan/China
15. Ecuador
16. Afghanistan
17. Lucern, Switzerland
18. Serbia/Montenegro
19. Antarctica
20. Tijiuana, Mexico
21. Isle of Man, United Kingdom
22. Jerusalem
23. Lithuania
24. Malaysia
25. Gratz, Austria
26. Vietnam
I just started salivating like one of Pavlov's dogs. Yum.
I've been lucky enough to see a lot of great places, which might be the topic for tomorrow's entry. Which travel destination(s) would be your drug(s) of choice?

Oooh, I would love to go to Iceland. I'm in!

I am going to Lisbon in November. Woohoo!

Seriously, if you ever need a travel buddy, I am down like Bobby Brown.

Pavlov's parlor for poor pooches.

My list would include
1. Isle of Skye, Scotland
2. London, England
3. New York City
4. Hawaii (yep, the whole state)

My mom is going on a cruise to Hawaii in October. I am so jealous.

Anytime you want a day trip to someplace different in OK, TX or NM, call me. Jeff will be happy to drive.

Michelle, thanks for volunteering your husband's mad driving skills. I'm sure he's bursting with fruit flavor...
