Jumping over the lazy dog

or, taking the bull by the horns.

Oh the places I will go!


Specialists at the Travel Channel have identified my genre of Travel Bug and offered suggestions for treatment. They say my symptoms are characteristic of the Explorer subset, that my travel-persona is a “mind-blowing combination” of organized, intuitive, sensitive, quiet and determined and I should be ware that I “occasionally freak people out.”  My symptoms become more prominent when I: step off the beaten path (as I am wont to do), start feeling the bubbly sensations of a dream come true, and get the all-over shivers upon viewing a spectacular sunset (or sunrise, as was in Carcassonne).

This was my last view of the city as I trekked down the hill to catch my early, earely train.

I am quite happy to follow the specialist’s recommendation of  a regular dose of Anthony Bordain: No Reservations and will promptly make plans for Road Trip USA.  In the mean time, here’s my prescription, a running list of exciting remedies I ought to visit to alleviate (or perhaps aggravate) my buggy issue, in no particular order.

  1. Florence, Italy
  2. Venice, Italy
  3. New Delhi, India
  4. London, England
  5. Loire Valley, France
  6. Prague, Czech Republic
  7. Vienna, Austria
  8. Edinburgh, Scotland
  9. Dublin, Ireland
  10. Tokyo, Japan
  11. Shanghai, China
  12. Dubai, U.A.E.
  13. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  14. Strasbourg, France
