Wish No. 21...
“Throughout history by going to far places and seeing strange sights men have prodded their imagination. They have found amazement and delight and have reflected that life back home need not be what it has been. They have learned that…there is more than one way to skin a cat, that there are more things in heaven and earth than was dreamt of in their philosophy, that the possibilities of life are not exhausted on Main Street…Travel has been the universal catalyst. It has made men think faster, imagine larger, want more passionately.” ~Daniel Boorstin
I must admit that I am quite the homebody...there's nothing I love more than being at home with my family, my books and my computer. That said, I really do enjoy travelling! I haven't been to any state or any country that I haven't truly loved. California, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Florida, New York, Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Delaware, Idaho,Pennsylvania,Maine...loved them all. Outside of the states I've only been to Bermuda, Aruba, Turks & Caicos and St. Thomas...and I've loved them all too.
Seeing new places and meeting new people is just so much fun! The sights and the sounds and the smells of the different cities are wonderful. I'm hoping that "one day" I'll get to Europe and to Hawaii and to Alaska and to Australia. But no matter where I've been (or where I might go) there's still no place like home!
