    • Great food for thought! I love travel shows, books, and blogs, and there are so many beautiful places in the world to explore. While it may not be super-adventurous, one of the things on my travel bucket list is the candlelit evenings at Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte. Another, more adventurous sight on my bucket list - the "Inside the Volcano" tour in Iceland! (Photo below from the official website)

    • Its an amazing world out there don't let the press sway your decision and make you go to Florida for your vacation!



      Yet, there's a LOT to see for me still in North America...I doubt I'll do any substantial overseas travel in the remainder of my lifetime because of that.

      Now, my company did send me on a two-week excursion to Japan several years ago. Fun trip, and yes we did get to wander the streets of Tokyo for a weekend.

      This was in mid-December, and quite obvious that Christmas celebrations weren't a thing there - at all.

    • Last week I drove almost 5400 miles to California and back. Not adventurous. Last summer I went to Thailand and took my bicycle down all sorts of dirt back roads. I hardly knew any of the language, didn't use a map and I felt it was fairly adventurous. I think really adventurous would be to travel somewhere without a plan and with very little money and not knowing the native language. That'd be serious adventure.
