Ten on Tuesday

1. What book, movie or song has made you want to travel to a particular place? (eg. I went to Prince Edward Island because I was such a Anne of Green Gables fan) .. Although I've always wanted to visit Greece and the Mediterranean, watching Mama Mia and the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants only solidified that dream. It looks so gorgeous.

2. Aside from your significant other, who would you want to take with you on a dream trip? I would love to take a nice trip with a few girlfriends. I have been away with the girls before, but only for work conferences and bachelorette parties. I'd love to do a vacation just cause...

3. Where would said dream trip be to? Anywhere with sand, margaritas, seafood and water.

4. If you were hosting guests or providing tips, what three things would you show visitors to your hometown? Well, we live about 30 minutes from D.C. and 30 minutes from Baltimore so the possbilities are endless. I'd probably take you shopping in Annapolis, out to dinner in D.C. and to the aquarium in Baltimore.

5. If you had a long weekend ahead of you, where you head – beach, city or country/mountains?I hate the city-- funny considering I live so close to two major ones. I enjoy living close to the cities, but I don't actually enjoy vacationing or visiting most cities. If I had a choice, I'd most certainly choose a relaxed weekend at the beach with plenty of BBQing or camping in the mountains.

6. Do you have a passport? If so, did you get it for a particular trip or just to have, in case? I got my passport when I was 19 for a college spring break trip to Acapulco Mexico. I need to get my name changed on my passport-- thanks for reminding me. I've only been married 6 months. ha.

7. Are there any travel souvenirs you collect? If not, is there something else you collect? Pittsburgh Steelers clothing or cool paraphenalia.

8. If you could name a paint colour, what colour would it be and what would you call it? It would be purple and I'd probably name it "Royalty" (original, right? ;)

9. If you were heading away for a weekend solo, where would you go? (forget about practicality here and flight times, assume you can get to any city in the world for the weekend). I'd head to Greece-- first class of course!

10. Is there a song or a smell or something that you strongly associate with a particular holiday/place/time, such that it always takes you back? I'll have to think about this one....

Greece looks amazing and both those movies made me want to go even more (not long now - I'm going Island hopping in June). I'm too chicken to go solo though.
