Friday Fives

1. What's the last place you traveled to, outside your own home state/country? Las Vegas? Craig? The Wyoming/Colorado border at Baggs, Wyoming?

2. What's the most bizarre/unusual thing that's ever happened to you while traveling? Getting really drunk, I mean like drunken soldiers drunk (in fact we were drunken soldiers!) while driving in a Jeep CJ7 across Europe and getting lost, I mean really lost. Bat shit lost in the tiny European country of Luxembourg. We were trying to get to Paris for the very famous Paris Airshow but kept taking wrong turns. So many wrong turns. And the beer was running out. And good German beer. We picked up cases of it at the brewery in Stuttgart and needed that beer to make the voyage. If the beer didn't hold out - oh Lord! Eventually we found the interstate and got to Paris but a five hour detour in the thick of night in a country whose native language is still largely unknown (German? French? Flemish? Luxembourg-ese?), well, that is a fright. But then again, we were very drunk.

3. If you could take off to anywhere, money and time being no object, where would you go? Finland, in the spring, just after the long nights, as the sun is just beginning to creep up and stay up all day and the snow filled horizon is glowing with blue and I have some friends, some music and some vodka and quiet.

4. Do you prefer traveling by plane, train or car? Plane ( I love airports! and taking off!), then train (I love the whole Agatha Christie aspect of train travel, especially in Europe.) then car. The first five or so hours of good old fashioned road trip are great and full of fun energy. Then the boredom and the responsibility of the whole event sit in and I just sit behind the wheel and stew with a grimace.

5. What's the next place on your list to visit? New Orleans. via Kevin.
