The Places I've Been/The Places I'll Go

Been thinking about travel this year. Where have I been? Where do I want to go? Like usual, I've got a few places in mind and, if the past is any indication, who knows what lies ahead? You know, I'm always full of surprises on that front.

Let's see...for starters...there's Europe again. There are a few places in Europe I really want to go see. Barcelona would be nice. Prague would be fun (although I'm not sure about the food there. It might not be up to my usual south Mediterranean fare.) I could always do London. (God, it's been ages since I've been to London. Well, actually, come to think of it, it was only October. But, still, you know, feels like ages since I've shot there...and I need to shoot there again.)

I don't know. There's just something about Europe right now though. It's just not "calling me" like it used to call me. I'm actually starting to think about Asia a bit. Maybe Japan. Or Thailand. Yeah, I so want to go to Bangkok, it's not even funny. I so could see myself doing that this year.

I've also never been to Colorado. I mean, I was there in the past (sort of) but never quite made it out of the airport (so it doesn't count.)

I am on this quest, you see, to make it to all 50 states. I've got a long way to go, stacking up only about half (or so.) I mean, this is not counting any place where I've been only in the airport, train station or bus stop. You know, I had to have gotten out and "walked around" a bit, otherwise it just doesn't count.

Maybe Seattle. Yeah, the Pacific Northwest would be dandy.

How about Michigan? Gosh, this is getting fun. I could see myself in almost any of these places.

So, nobody knows what 2015 will have in store for me in the way of travel, but I can dream, can't I? And, I'd welcome any suggestions in this regard as well. Where do you see me going? Where do you want to go? What kind of pictures should we take when we get there?

Oh, it's fun to dream, isn't it? I believe it was the great philosopher, Dr. Seuss, who once said something along the lines of, "Oh, the places you'll go!" 

Until next time...
