recently, gabe and i decided that we wanted to go on an adventure; finally get out there and see some sights, get a taste of other regional cultures and history. i decided to put this together as a way to organize the attractions that i want to visit at each destination. some represent little pieces of history or nature that i've always wanted to visit and some are just little finds that seem quirky or interesting. enjoy!
