    OK the likes list is cool, but come on! Brussel sprouts? Yu can live on thoose things. And if your travelling, bats snakes and spiders will be with you everywhere you go. Now where is that spell check buttom?

    Here’s the info you were inquiring about – http://www.exploreforayear.com
    or contact my friend directly at lily.leung@gmail.com
    she loves talking travel.

    Have fun…Wait. Sean Connery??!! You don’t like Sean Connery. Well, if I wasn’t so technically inept I’d erase lily’s contact! Oh the shame… ;0)

      Thank you so much, Doug!! Ha – maybe you can live on Brussel sprouts but I prefer to live on chocolate and fresh fruit 😛 I’m just assuming the international bats, snakes, and spiders won’t try to eat me like the domestic varieties…a girl can dream anyway.

      I had no idea my dislike of Sean Connery would offend so many people lol. But boy am I glad you didn’t erase Lily’s contact – even though I’m at work I’ll probably be spending the next half hour (at least) exploring the website and reaching out to Lily…and compiling a list of reasons why Sean Connery isn’t as great as men seem to think he is 😉

      Seriously though, I can’t thank you enough and I’d love to keep in touch and hear all about the travels you and your wife have enjoyed so far!!!

    – I’ve only seen one movie with Sean…it was so so.
    – Chocolate and fresh fruit…you can be my friend!
    – I’ve had to lift my bicycle over a python that was summing itself across the entire width of a road – true story!
    – While Elephant riding In Nepal I encountered a spider that covered my whole face…bleaaahhh eew yuck – it was massive but apparently non poisonous and caused great laughter from the guides. I try not to write my travel stories because I wouldn’t know when to stop and I’d be packing and on the move again within a week!

      I have to think that a spider the size of a man’s face wouldn’t need to be poisonous – it could just swallow a person whole! But how exciting to be elephant riding in Nepal! I know what you mean, I haven’t even been to that many places yet and I can’t shut up about them 😀

    What’s the matter with turning into your parents? I think that at least 1 of us is a fine person

      Hey, I know this was a while ago and I’ve recently sucked at keeping things updated on here, but THANK YOU SO FREAKING MUCH!! It makes my heart happy to know others appreciate my quirky/inappropriate/sarcastic/stupid sense of humor as much as I do and my friends and family pretends to 😛 I hope I can continue to keep you laughing.
