They Should Make A Patch For This

7 Aug

Last Thursday night was Book Club night. We had an Italian themed spread with prosecco to boot. We ate, we drank, we laughed. We discussed the book, our failed relationships, our amazing relationships and many other things. (I think book club is sort of like therapy for me, especially in discussing this particular book.) As the conversation was winding down (and the tiramisu was being devoured), we discussed one last thing: What three countries we’d travel to if we had a year (and the funds) to do so.

For someone who is a bit of a travel junkie, this was a dangerous thing to participate in. I don’t mean to trivialize addiction(s), but for me, talking about traveling is like blowing cigarette smoke into the face of someone who is a former smoker. It makes me want to max out a credit card, turn in a leave slip…and board a plane. I wish they made a patch for this.

Back to the question. Where would I go? Spain, Italy and Ireland. Among the other responses were Egypt, Ecuador, France and Greece. Yes, yes, yes, yes. I either need to find work with a travel magazine, or set my DVR to record the travel channel nonstop.

Because I’m a glutton for punishment (and sticking with the Eat, Pray, Love theme of one year and three countries), where would you go?

    1)Italy (everywhere in Italy, but I have to wait, because Mr. Bunn was supposedly conceived there, and to be honest, I'm just a little too superstitious for all that; 2) Greece — just romantic and beautiful, who wouldn't want to go to Greece?; 3) Spain

    Iceland (My dad was stationed there when I was born and I've never gone back), Spain, Thailand.Sad thing is, we had JUST started to travel before the girls were born. We did Paris, Mexico City, and San Pedro (Belize, fabulous beach vaca, highly recommend it)… and now. It's gonna be a while til we can go anywhere else and it KILLS me.

    A good friend of mine is obsessed with going to Iceland, so much so that she's gotten me interested in going!I'm glad I'm not the only one who daydreams of the "places I'll go." đŸ™‚
