Traveling is such a huge part of my life and work (Red Deer, here I come!!!), and I am absolutely in love with it. Whether it's to Toronto (pics from this weekend's Afrofest 2010 are coming soon) or Latvia (Riga is really the bomb, y'all!), each place is such a jewel with soooooo much to offer.
I was in Honolulu last year, and as with each trip, I really tried to build in my list of criteria - stuff to check off to make sure I get the best out of every trip. One of my mantras is DO IT ALL! On vacay, that's not always possible, but this list helps keep me grounded. It helps me to do a smaller number of things, but enjoy the substance of the place, its people, and its traditions.
