A Brief List of My Travels

Traveling is so great for so many reasons. The fresh experiences, bonding time with companions and poorly-made souvenirs really do enrich one’s life. Most frequently, my memories of places I’ve been are triggered by smells. There’s the smoky scent of Nepal, the honeysuckle musk of Singapore and the mossy odor of Bali. Fortunately, I got to do a lot of traveling in my high school and college years. While I don’t get to take off quite so frequently these days, plans are in the works for a mega-tour of France, Italy and other European destinations in the summer of 2008. Until then, I’m happy to remember this list of places I’ve seen with my own eyes, smelled with my own nostrils, trampled with my own feet and been sick on with my own mouth (I’m looking at you, Nepal).
