My Travel ABC’s

My good friend Giulia over at Travel Reportage passed on this questionnaire to me.  It took a little work, but I traced it back to the source and I’m actually the 7th person in the chain which is pretty spectacular.  According to the six degrees of separation theory that’s the same length chain I should need to connect to the most remote person on Earth.  Even aside from that fun fact, it’s a great list of questions.  Enjoy!

A view from the Camino de Santiago.

A: Age you went on your first international trip: I know that Canada is a foreign country, but I always noticed a bigger difference driving south to Florida than north to Canada.  I’d say my first real international trip was to Australia with my family when I was about 13.

B: Best (foreign) beer you’ve had and where: The word love is overused, but I love beer.  If beer were to stop existing Continue reading

Wanted – Bucket Lists

Although I’m quite happy with the number of readers of this blog, one thing I’d love to have more of is reader participation.  I’ve made several pleas in the past and sometimes I even end my post with a question.  All this has been for naught, so I thought I’d try a different approach.

A friend of mine and I agreed to create our own Bucket Lists (things we want to do before we die or “kick the bucket”).  I found the process of creating mine quite engaging and the results interesting, but I’m not going to share it with you all, not yet at least.  Instead, I’d like everyone to create their own list over the next two weeks and then either to email it to me, or to post it in the comments when I share my own bucket list. To keep everyone more or less on the same page, here are some guidelines:

  1. The list should be 15 items long.
  2. Each item should contain a place and an activity, e.g., “I want to go to Munich and drink at Oktoberfest.”

That’s it!

I’ll be reaching out to some of you personally to encourage participation.  Please help me all of you!  I know as a group you’re definitely more interesting than I am, so let’s help this blog reach its potential!

Where would you like your footsteps to take you?
