Travel Bug

Last night, Brent and I had dinner with our friends at Figo in Palo Alto.  Isn’t the name of the restaurant fun to say?  It makes me want to throw my hands up and say Figo with a thick accent like how a little old Italian man would say it.

Over some La Fin du Monde beers and a Bulleit Old Fashioned (which our server called the mullet) we started discussing and dreaming about upcoming travel plans.  I have had the travel itch for a while now, since it’s been several years since I’ve been out of the country.  My last trip was to Costa Rica and that was almost 7 years ago! And confession: Brent has NEVER been out of the country (except to TJ which really doesn’t count).

So now comes the fun part: Where do we go?  Should we do a European vacation(we’re thinking starting in Amsterdam, then traveling to Belgium, Germany and ending in Prague) or perhaps take a trip to Southeast Asia and go to Thailand and Indonesia?  How about staying a little closer to home and going to Vancouver or taking an Alaskan cruise?  And then again there’s always my favorite place in the world, Paris!

Where do you think would be the best place to visit for someone new to traveling?

Here are a few photos of the beautiful world we live in that are at the top of my list.
