Top 5 Skills I’ve Learned In Europe

1- Holding on for dear life. Yes, Ryanair…I’m talking to you. Really though, what can you expect when you pay .50 pence for a flight to Spain (plus taxes of course)??

2- Eating outside. No thank you, I will NOT pay an eat-in fee. C’mon jambon baguette…let’s go sit under the Eiffel Tower. 

3- Avoiding cute flower panhandlers. Not sure what it is, but Europe has much more attractive vagabonds and crooks than we do here in the States. And naturally, they all tell you how beautiful you are…bella americana, indeed.

4- Reading a (real, live) map without the help of my beloved iPhone. No international service brings out the retro in all of us.

5- Asking for ice…and specifically, more than one piece of it.

Top 5 Trips I Need To Take

1- Barcelona- I’ve been to Spain several times, but never to the ONE city everyone says is the best in the country. WTF, Self.

2- Alaska- The mountains, the bears, the lakes…AND the opportunity to see Russia?! What’s to lose?!

3- Istanbul- The home of the Byzantine Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and some damn good coffee. Bring it.

4- Luckenbach, Texas- Gotta pay homage to the greats…and the best opening song lyrics OF ALL TIME. Rest in peace, Waylon.

5- Antarctica- While it might take a while to get there, I am determined to visit all seven continents before I leave this little world. Antarctica will no doubt be the capstone.
