Hmmm, what does this say about me? I haven't traveled nearly enough in my life. I've been all over the western US, and some parts of the rest of the country, but never overseas. One of these days I'm just going to quit my job and go travel the world for a year. Who wants to come with me? Ok, a year might be too long. 6 months? 3 months? Ok, I'd settle for a 2 or 3 week trip.
