Travel Bucket List

This will be updated as things are accomplished, and hopefully they will be many. I cannot place them in any particular order, save for the first.

Coming from a girl who held a LotR party, chanted over a home made Hobbit Stew and Lembas all while dressed up, relentlessly watched all bonus features on the extended editions while dressed up, and never having lost at LotR Trivial Pursuit, this is kind of necessary. I’m pretty sure I will cry – for JOY and EPIC AWESOMENESS.
