Today in my journey to kill time at work, I came across this slide show. Right off I wanted to send my "little" sister to Cottonwood, Idaho to indulge her new found infatuation with dogs. Later, I thought of how much my boss and his family would love the unending supply of air for scuba diving tanks offered at Jules’ Undersea Lodge in Emerald Lagoon, Key Largo, Florida. For each slide I could think of someone (or several someones) who would love a trip there. I'm sure that by now anyone who is a regular reader of this blog knows my love of travel/vacations. And you might know of my love of the unique, but maybe not...Well, for all of you in doubt, I love unique things. I love to find the obscure bench or cafe or trail; anywhere that I can make my own, and not have a million people running around. I've never been much of a fan of the passing craze. I don't read books because a certain vowel thinks they're good. I don't wear pink because it's the new black. I don't buy new cell phones just because they're new. I do things because I want to, or because a friend I trust encourages it. Now, for those of you who don't know me, don't get confused--I'm not an out-there freak trying to make a statement. I still have my natural hair color, I'm pretty good at blending into a crowd, and I do wear some trendy clothes. I'm just saying that I do things because I like/want to, and not because it's "all the rage."
Sorry about that tangent, I'll put my soapbox away for another day. Today, my intent is the vacation spots. Who else thought those sounded like fun? Which one would you pick to go on first? (I really do want to see your answer to this in the comment section) Do any of them make you nervous? I know I'd have a problem with scuba diving in Florida--aren't there tons of alligators and sharks there? Do you know of any others I should add to my list of adventures?
