The Travel List

So I did this fun fb quiz the other day and I realized I need to get back to traveling all the time and how much I missed it (side note, I begin entirely too many sentences on this blog with "So....") It was a list of 100 places throughout the world and sadly I only got 22 places. But I'm sure its more than the average person has seen.

This list makes me realize I want to live abroad again, particularly in Europe. It's just so cheap to hop on a plane and jet off to another country for a long weekend. I'm not interested in exploring more of America, which I really should be. There are many 8 places I really want to visit in the US. Perhaps another few years of living abroad isn't impossible after all. I mean, I've already lived almost 7 years abroad already!!

The other day watching House Hunters Internationals on HGTV gave me anxiety because I kept wondering if I'd ever get to experience living abroad again :/
