I'm not sure when we started this list, but we have a travel list. Places we want to go before we die. Our long term plan is to work, raise our kids, and then retire as soon as we can and start travelling. Probably down size to a small house that we can go to when we're home, but just GO.SEE.DO in the meantime. Every time we see a place we scratch it off the list. So, here is our list. Any places you'd add?
Costa Rica - planned December, 2011
South Africa I've been there but Charlie never has. I want to take him and show him all that I saw in Cape Town and Kruger National Park.
Uganda I want to see the gorillas! Not till they quit killing each other though...
Monongahela National Forest
Prince Edward Island
Bryce/Zion Canyon, Utah
Puerto Rico - planned February, 2012
That is it. That is the list so far. This list is in constant flux. It changes with our (mostly my) whims and whatever I happen to be reading about recently.
The world is a great, big, beautiful place. And we only have one life. So get out there and LIVE IT!
Now I'm going to go study...
