This is the year of traveling

I am such a nerd. I am constantly watching the Discovery Channel, History Channel, or the Travel Channel in an effort to learn more about the world around me. I have a new goal to see the 7 Wonders of the World along with other amazing sites such as The Great Pyramids of Giza, Stonehenge, the Statues of Easter Island, Victoria Falls, the Great Barrier Reef, Teotihuacan, and Mt. Vesuvius. If I am ever going to be able to see all of these beautiful places I need to start now. So for Christmas I gave my dad an Egypt travel book as a "hint" to where we should go on our next family vacation. He took the bait and we are going to Egypt for two weeks in November, with a 4 day stop in NYC. Check!! : )

A few weeks ago I was having lunch with one of my college buddies, Syanna, when she told me that she was planning a trip to the UK in May. She asked me if I wanted to go and I could not resist. So in May I will be headed to the UK with a short stop in Washington DC (I figured I should also see some of my own country). 

Along with these two trips I am also going to Canada (in July for a family reunion), Chaco Canyon, Nine mile canyon, Mesa Verde, Zions, Arches National Park, and Bryce Canyon. What a year!!! I am so excited!!!
