Top Ten Tuesday
Top Ten All-Time Favorite Vacations
(and this is from yanowhatimean.com) and for some reason when I create links they do not work but my tech help is at school.

The order of these is most recent first and my definition of vacation includes accompanying hubby on his business trips. Scientists travel a LOT and numbers 4, 6, 7, and 8 were scientist trips.

1. Calgary, Alberta, October 2003--an out of character trip for me to watch short track speedskating and to see hometown athlete, Apolo Anton Ohno, skate. It was a blast and I made some really cool friends.
2. Loire Valley, France, pilgramage to Canterbury, England, July 2003
3. San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, Feb. 2003
4. Milan, Venice, Stresa, Italy and Paris, France, July 2000
5. Puerto Rico and St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, June 1998 to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary
6. Lyon, France, Aug.-Dec. 1995 (World Health Org. sabbatical with 7 and 10 year old children and it changed our lives forever) includes side trips all over France and to Ediburgh, St. Andrews, Scotland; London, Brussels, Basel, Switz; and the Netherlands
7. Rome, Florence, and Cinque Terre Italy, July 1992
8. Edinburgh, Scotland and London, September, 1989
9. First trip to Hawaii--early 80's
10. Honeymoon to Seattle, WA and the Washington coast--changed our lives forever because we knew we'd move here someday, June 1973
