Wow, you have a lifetime of fun memories and your still young. Looks like you have traveled to a lot of really neat places. Were these a part of your husbands military that you got to travel? I would love to go to Paris. Everyone who has been really enjoyed it.
Anyways, thanks for sharing. I feel like I know you even better now.

Take care

Holy cow! I thought I had done some pretty interesting things, but I don't think I can compete with your list!

That was really cool! I've never been to Hawaii...lucky you. I went to Paris, loved it, saw the Mona Lisa, behind layers of glass and a gate, kinda takes away from the excitement of seeing it in person.
