Around The World In A Day
The proper way to read the title of this post, is by simultaneously gyrating your hips & singing the same line in Ricki Martin's song, Shake Your Bon Bon. If you don't know what I am talking about, click here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bu9iUD47Fkc and fast forward to second 28! I promise you the very act of my suggested moves will improve your day immensely.
Like any crazy person, I love to travel to far-off locals with barely an itinerary in sight. Okay, I always start out OCD but then I realize sometimes more fun is had without concrete plans. Of course, one can never travel without a good book. If you need a suspenseful, funny novel with tons of scuba diving mishaps check out Olivia Joules & the Overactive Imagination by Helen Fielding. While the book will never win any literature achievement awards, it's entertaining none the less.
My trips have been relatively short & mostly focused on one region... but how great would it be to travel around the world? One can imagine an adventure filled with scuba diving in every conceivable country & filling one's passport with exotic stamps along the way! Let me introduce you to my friend Angela, who I've known since sixth grade, and her husband, Fritz. Last year, they decided to get away from it all & travel around the world, literally. Fritz maintains a blog (which I obsessively check) spotlighting the highlights of their trip. I am super jealous of this amazing expedition & all of the spectacular places they have visited. Honestly, it's the journey of a lifetime! You can travel along with them too http://www.travelrats.blogspot.com/
