Map Pins

This is one of my favorte jokes from the late comedian Mitch Hedberg:
"I want to hang a map of the world in my house, then I am going to put pins into all the locations I have traveled to, but first I will have to travel to the top two corners of the map, so it won't fall down."
Here are the places I have gone to that hold up my map...

This is an old picture from before I got my job travelling. It was a special project that sent me up to Juneau, Alaska. I got to spend a week at Grandma's Featherbed Inn. If you ever travel to Juneau, it's the place to stay. Grandma cooks breakfast and is nice and close to the Mendenhal Glacier. The picture is from a day trip I took up to the side of the glacier - it's only about 10 miles outside of town.
(See, even back in 2000 I was a Coug fan)

This picture is from our vacation to Kona, HI. We had a great time and I can't wait to go back.

One of my notorious pictures from our honeymoon. Cancun, MX was the perfect place to unwind after the wedding. I still have the bottle and it is storing my loose change that will hopefully take us somewhere fun again.

This last one isn't the greatest picture but it was taken at night. St. John's, NL is 4 1/2 hours away and I wasn't there long enough to adjust to the time change. This picture is at Cape Spear which is as far East as you can go in North America. Next stop, Europe. (actually it would have been faster to fly to Poland from there than it was to fly home)
I will be going back soon so hopefully I can get some better pictures during the day. It's really a beautiful place.
