It's true. I have it. Wanderlust. I am driven by a desire to travel and see new places and meet new people and try new food.

Lately a few people have asked me how many countries I have been to and I didn't know.

So here's my list (and it's not in any order):

  1. Canada
  2. Mexico
  3. Belize
  4. Nicaragua
  5. Brazil
  6. Japan
  7. Thailand
  8. China
  9. Taiwan
  10. Australia
  11. England
  12. Scotland
  13. Latvia
  14. Estonia
  15. Sweden
  16. Denmark
  17. Russia
  18. Czech Republic
  19. Germany
  20. France
  21. Spain
  22. Italy
  23. Holy See
  24. Malta
  25. Cyprus
  26. Turkey
  27. Israel
  28. Greece (Crete)
  29. Switzerland
  30. Austria

Tell me your favorite place on earth.

Later I'll post all the U.S. national parks I've been to. :)

A Town Like Alice

A Town Like AliceA Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yes, I read this again.  Still LOVE it. I convinced my bookclub to read it too and they all loved it which totally validated how good this book is.

Like many others I saw the Masterpiece Theatre version of this and immediately went out and got the book. This is beautiful tale of the strength of women and written by a man--I always marvel when a man is able to really capture it. You must read this and then see the movie--not vice versa.

After reading this book I went out and found everything I could by Nevil Shute. I highly recommend all of his books.

The Silver WitchThe Silver Witch by Paula Brackston
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Really 3 1/2 stars. I did like the back and forth between the two story lines I just felt like the book went on too long. This is a supernatural story that links the generations.
