Not a tourist but a traveler!
Ok, so maybe I don't know the difference between a tourist and a traveler. I may very well be a tourist, since I do "do" a lot of touristy things. Maybe being an actual traveler is when you don't do the touristy things! Either way, I still go places, and that's all that matters, right? I have really enjoyed seeing many places, and though I am almost 45 years old, I still haven't seen as many places as I would like to. As of late, my travels has mainly consisted of "a day in..." because when you cruise, you mainly stay one day in a port. That's ok with me for now, a taste of another place is fine, I can scope out the place and maybe later on in life, I can choose which ones I like best to spend more time at!
This is a picture of myself and my husband Michael. He is my travel partner and I am dragging him along with me!
Update March 30, 2007 - I recently purchased the book "1,000 Places to See Before You Die" and I have made it my goal to see how many of these places we can actually make it to. So far we have 975 more left to go!
