Louvre. I chose this one because the Louvre is absolutely GORGEOUS yet someone(s) decided that graffiti would brighten up the place. Idiots!
Arc de Triomphe
The artist Seurat final resting place in pere lachaise cemetery. This is where I encountered his ghost. He blew smoke right in my hubby's face. It was so bloody cool.... No one was around and the overwhelming stench of smoke came about and blew into his face. I turned in a circle twice taking pics but no orbs. too dang cool...
Marie Antoinette's bed in Versailles
Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. I forgot how short my hair was. OMG!

Hawaii - traveled to the big island of Hawaii in 2205 for a friend's wedding. The sunsets were absolutely breathtaking. I figured out I'm a Pacific Ocean girl on that trip! Surfed, snorkeled, and hula danced - what a fabulous time.
Boston - my #1 favorite city in the world!!! I have been back three different times. I love the charm, history and people of Boston. If I had enough money I would move there.
Montreal - went to see the final game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Habs in the Forum. It was a wonderful place to visit. Course, the highlight was finding out we were staying in the same hotel as the team!!! Woohooo! Hellooooo Chris Chelios!!! Hee hee!
I'll have to look and see if I have any pics scanned.

Ooooh I love to travel as well
Been to different places in France, Netherlands, Germany, the Uk and Ireland.
In december I will be going to Paris once more, maybe Londen as well and next year I will definitely be going to Scotland.
I'm also thinking of going to Portugal next year, I have some friends there, and the Us is high on my list as well.
I've always dreamed of seeing the world, ever since I was a kid, but I had to put away those dreams because of health issues.
It's since this past summer when visiting Ireland, that I realised that it's really missing in my life.
I now decided to live my life instead of my life living me and to do the things and visit places I so desperately want to see.
So since august my mind has been very busy thinking about my next trip and although I was planning to go to Scotland this year, I'm going to wait until next year because it's possible that a friend of mine is going to study at the university of glasgow, yes, she's very lucky ^^
But travelling has become once more a passion of mine and this time I will not put the dream away
Hey, when you come to Portugal consider passing by my hometown Porto :-) It was voted recently as one of the sexiest destination in Europe... but personaly I think it's because I was born there

I would not call myself "a big traveller", but, if time and money allows, I like to go and see other places, cultures... I think that here, in Europe, we are lucky not to have to travel too far to be "abroad", in a different country with different language and culture.
Which countries I have visited so far (if I start from my early childhood): Bulgaria, Hungary, Russia (I just love St. Petersbourg), Poland, Germany, Italy (Rome and Venezia are deffinitely worth seeing), France (Paris, Provence, Bretagne and Normandy - each part is special!), Spain (Andalusia and Catalania - well, just some places over there, but I was taken away by Barcelona, Granada, Sevilla and Cordoba), Greece (Thessaloniki, Meteora, Vergina), Belgium (Brussels, Leuven)... Further west - in UK, I have been to London for several times, I visited Wales, some other cities in England - I like the whole atmosphere of old England!!! I spent just two days (separately) in Scotland (one-day trip to Edinburg, but it was before I got GALS, and 24 stay in Glasgow this summer, when I managed to see the campus of University of Glasgow, stayed briefly in Paisley, Greenock...).
I have been to the USA for one year, but it is more than 16 years ago. I must agree about Carmel in California, it is really very beautiful place (and all the area around), I also liked very much San Francisco, Sacramento, New York, Florida, and Washington D.C. where I spent the whole semester.
I hope I will go and see many other places!!!

I've been in many places, Spain, France, Austria, Germany, Venezuela, mostly because I studied languages when I was a teen.
I lived in Paris and Miami, and I'm leaving in 20 days, I'm going to New Zealand for a while.
I'd like to see...too many places!! Russia, India, Egypt, Mexico, Canada, Brasil... well, the list is endless!!
I just hope to be healthy as long as possible so that I'll be able to see more places on this beautiful planet!!
