10 Unique Experiences Travel Has Provided

1. Having someone shut down shop (in Istanbul) for six hours just to teach me about carpets.

2. Getting caught in the rain on top of a Mayan Temple.

3. Looking out to Morocco over the Straight of Gibraltar – from my bed in Spain.

4. Harvesting and eating snails in Sicily.

Sicily 2007 6305. Choosing a ginormous fish to eat (without knowing what kind of fish it is)

6. Avoiding sink holes while driving on unknown roads.

7. Taking the night bus to save time and money; then not being able to sleep because of absurdly loud movies playing.

8. Taking two long cab rides during one trip due to circumstantial problems.

Sevilla 2007 (6)9. Avoiding a monkey who was trying to steal my purse on the rock of Gibraltar.

Sept 2007 Vacation 23410. Camping on one of the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world.  Flamenco Beach (Culebra, Puerto Rico) used to be used for war games – hence, the rusted out tanks on the beach.
