I am currently out of the country. Yep. I am spending the week in Toronto and flew in yesterday morning. I am here for a Microsoft tradeshow and unfortunately won't get much free time but I am hoping to see some sights since this is my first time in Canada.
After a year and a half of marriage, I finally changed my name on my passport. Word to the wise...don't wait until the last minute or you will have to pay $75 to expedite it on top of the $110 charge...urgh
Getting here was kind of a nightmare...got 4 hours of sleep, flew to Atlanta, was delayed 3 hours, took 2 hours to shuttle to my hotel and stayed up until midnight. I am tired :-)
So on the subject of countries, I haven't been to many. I traveled a lot growing up (and do now with work and my husband) but mostly inside the US and I don't mind it. Here is where I've visited...
Malaysia, Penang (summer 2007)
Thailand, Bangkok & Phuket (Summer 2007)
(does spending a couple hours in the Admirals Clubs in Japan and Singapore count?)
Mexico, Cabo (Honeymoon Feb 2011)
(I've traveled to Mexico a few times on cruises too)
And there you have it. I've never been to Europe and I don't have a deep desire to do so. Jon and I want to travel to Italy (he is half Italian and has some distant relatives still there) and Greece but it's not a top priority right now. There's just something about the US I love. I love San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Denver...hoping I can visit all 50 states before I die and I'm about halfway there.
So back to Toronto, I apologize for being MIA this week. Cell phone minutes, texting and data are out of this world expensive so I will be using them sparingly. I can receive texts for free but don't be offended if I don't text you back :-)
but don't forget about me...I am hosting my first group giveaway tomorrow :-)
& you still have time to win a 1 year subscription to Lucky magazine!
What is the coolest country you've visited??
