So now that I've been in New York 6 months almost to the day, I am considering where to travel in 2008. No worries about a return to my life as a gypsy - I am here in New York to stay. But as my friend, Rob, often says, wanderlust is a hard habit to shake.
I will be the first to admit that I have had my issues with the New York Times - mostly because they have always been incapable of executing my home delivery properly. However, I do love that paper, particularly the travel section. When I was little, my father bought that paper everyday. One summer as I was dreaming of how to escape my tiny hometown. Dozens of these things poured into our mailbox, addressed to me and I coveted them. I kept them in a large stack under my bed and would look through them, wishing so much to see these far flung places like the Galapagos and Easter Island.
Today, The Times published a list of the top 53 places to consider traveling in 2008. http://www.nytimes.com/ref/travel/20071209_WHERE_GRAPHIC.html?th&emc=th# I am entranced by the suggestions and possible adventures to be had in this diverse list. - some I've never even heard of!
