Thinking Global

With all the hoopla surrounding the Olympics, it got me thinking about how fortunate I’ve been to have seen so much of the world. I took my first trip outside North America when I was 16; since then, I’ve been hooked on international travel. I’ve been lucky enough to tour dozens of different countries on five different continents, including:

Aruba, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Grenada, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Monaco, the Netherlands, Poland, Puerto Rico, Russia, St. Kitts, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, the U.S., Vatican City, and Venezuela

You’d think there wouldn’t be much left on my bucket list, but I’d still like to see Egypt, Greece and Turkey (particularly Istanbul, the city that straddles Europe and Asia) someday. You gotta have dreams.

I’m getting pumped about our family road trip to Washington coming up this weekend. (The boys finally get to use their passports!) Justin is back to his usual self and both kids are excited about Great Wolf Lodge, so it should be a good time. Stay tuned.
