  1. Loved reading through this list and learning more about you!! I'd be happy to join you on any of those trips you'd like to take - what cool places those would be to visit!!! And I'm glad to know that we wouldn't camp at any of those destinations ;) We could also eat chocolate, spring rolls, and sweet/salty salads (without celery ;) together!!

  2. It sounds like we would be great travel companions! :-)
