Yep, that's exactly what I was thinking. Christchurch seems like a good base. Big enough to offer a decent number of employment opportunities. Close enough to the mountains that I could head out whenever I want. Perfect!

Right now there is two places I really want to be;
1) Exploring in Istanbul
2) Driving a motorcycle in the Sahara Desert

Saskatchewan has been having a cold and rainy summer so I could go for some adventure and extreme heat.

Hmm, well considering.... I want to be somewhere in Guatemala or Nicaragua with a HUGE bottle of Flor de Cana, and a bunch of backpacker girlies.....
But, I would also gladdly be floating around the Greek Isles, the coast of Croatia, or the Almafi coast of Italy....
Or...... Smoking some super stinky stink in Vondel Park in the Dam....
When an adventure ends you can never go back, never relive it, never hope to feel the same emotion. The secret is to not try and go back but to keep searching for new adventure....

Here. I'm ready to not be traveling for a little while. Sometimes home can be just as exciting!

That said...yesterday I saw a beautiful elderly indian woman all decked out in her traditional clothing with a bindi dot on her forehead and india was suddenly right at the top of my list...

Hmmm Brazil was very nice!!

Every now and then i remember a wonderful place and i want to be there. Other times i dream of a fab place i visited and get pangs to go off there again. Going to so many places means i dream about them all at different times and the memories are so wonderful.

But sometimes its the jungles i trekked, the glaciers i walked, the mountains i climbed and beaches i sat on.................its way too hard man!
