THANKFUL {for my love of travel}

I am so thankful for the numerous travel experiences I have had. I LOVE TO TRAVEL. The first time I ever left the United States (besides Canada) was in my senior year of college (1998) when I studied abroad in London. I always knew I wanted to study abroad. Well since they my travel resume has grown quite long!

I AM THANKFUL FOR all the vacations, trips and adventures I have had the opportunity to experience! I would post pictures but there would be 1000s and my blog would probably explode! Haha! So instead I was thinking I would list all the countries and states that I've been too.

Top 3 states I want to visit next:

1. Oregon (hopefully in 2011 to visit Meghan)
2. Washington (in the same trip to Oregon)

Wow that is a good list of places if I do say so myself. People always ask me my favorite and there is no way to pick just one. All the trips I've taken have been amazing for different reasons. I loved backpacking through Europe and I loved driving cross country (twice).

Oh and can you believe I've never been to any of the Caribbean Islands? I guess I've been too busy traveling everywhere else. I do look forward to taking some vacations to the Carribean in my future. Those all inclusive resorts are calling my name!

What about you? Where have you been or where do you want to go?

P.S. That is it for my Thanksgiving week of "Thankful" blog posts. I hope you enjoyed.
