tickling itchy feet

It's what the Lonely Planet site has on the header of their WorldGuide, and it's a syndrome that I chronically suffer from. What do you do when you've got an itch? I don't know about you, but I'm a chronic scratcher. Today's top 5 is a list of random towns I want to visit soon.

1. Kutna Hora, Czech Republic
2. San Cristobal, Chiapas
3. Iceland (anywhere now that I've seen the amazing Flickr photos)
4. Bangalore, India
5. Lesotho, Africa

In other news, my trip to the airport late yesterday proved fruitful. After waiting in line at the American counter for 30 minutes, I finally had answers to the questions the Internet could not solve for me and the automated phone system refused to help with. Turns out my the return ticket I didn't use from San Angelo to BWI can be used anytime before December 27 as long as I pay the $100 change fee. I also learned that I can use my voucher pretty much however I want. Talk about a conundrum. I was left wondering whether I should go somewhere exotic alone or get two tickets to somewhere in the states and take a friend. I really want to share Austin with these two but think plans for a quick trip might need to be put on hold. One thing is certain; a jaunt around the globe will happen sooner rather than later.


  1. I want to go to the Czech Republic like whoa. Iceland would be cool, too. I also WILL be going to Scotland in two years (if not sooner). And Russia. I must get to Russia.


  2. ah, sounds lovely. i know i have a list, it's just not that specific yet. i need to get on that.

  3. I want to go everywhere. Literally everywhere. One place in every country in the world at least.

  4. ...lesotho is a country

  5. I know Lesotho is a country. I have peeps there I want to visit. I just got lazy and labeled everything a "city" early on. Lord knows Iceland isn't a city either.

  6. More outstanding Iceland photos here.
