So, it's been a very long winter here in the Northeast and all I can think about is getting away to somewhere warmer. I thought I would build a list of the places where I'm thinking about heading to and see what everyone else is planning. Heck, I'm even including places I would love to go, but know that I may never get to.

A little background on the group traveling - me, my husband, my teenage son and teenage daughter.


PS - This is my first list, so be gentle!

PPS - I hope to someday get an avatar, so any you want to donate to my cause is truly appreciated.

THANKS FOR YOUR DONATIONS!! As you can see, I now have an avatar! Woo Hoo - I feel like I belong, now!

Apparently Indonesia is a country on the other side of the world full of Indonesians. At least that is what my Indonesian wife tells me. I have yet to visit it!

A beautiful valley in the West of Yorkshire.
At one end is Hawes, where lies the factory that produces one of the best cheeses that there is.

Actually, there are loads of "London"s around the world, but only one really counts!
Overpriced, overcrowded, but with (too) much to see.
