To Do

511. Go snorkeling in St. John

Updated May 4, 2009 The snorkeling is so good in St. John, there’s an entire web site devoted to it: stjohnsnorkeling.com photo courtesy of Alex Dodd All the ingredients are there: beautiful island; white sand; tranquil, warm, blue water; coral reefs full of amazing fish and sea creatures. What a terrific way to spend an […]

510. Moped in Bermuda

Updated June 22, 2009 There is definitely a soft spot in my heart for white sands, blue water and tropical plants. I especially adore islands so small that there aren’t any cars, where people make their way around on golf carts, moped, or scooters. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a few islands like that […]

507. Eat real key lime pie in the Keys

Updated September 6, 2009 Once, after taking in a movie with girlfriends, we stopped in a coffee shop for a cup of tea and slice of pie. I had the worst luck with the pie that night. First, I tried ordering a slice of cherry. When the waitress returned with pie slices for the other […]

483. Visit the Galapagos Islands

Updated April 30, 2009 As a biology major, I learned over and over again about Darwin’s historic trip to the Galapagos Islands that led to his theory of evolution. We also studied the islands because of the unique ecosystem and wide diversity of life. I’d just like to go and experience it for myself.

198. Rent a Virgin Island

Updated May 3, 2010 Did you have any idea that you can do such a luxurious, sumptuous thing as rent an entire Virgin island all for yourself? You can, and that’s probably just the tip of the iceberg. It’s not cheap, but if I save my pennies, then maybe one day I’ll be able to […]

63. Drink the healing waters on Margaret Island in Budapest

Updated May 16, 2010 There aren’t many places on this planet that I wouldn’t like to travel to. I definitely have a wandering foot that gets itchy from time to time. There’s nothing for discovering more about yourself than to put yourself in an entirely new place with an entirely different culture. All your comforts […]

5. Re-visit the Bahamas

I took an amazing trip to the Bahamas during Spring Break and I can’t wait to go back.
