About Carmen

I am a traveling fiend!

I love to travel, I love to talk about travel, I love to help other people discover travel.

Even the Chinese know how much I love going new places and seeing new things. :) I once got a fortune cookie that told me I would step on the soil of many countries. I decided that was less of a fortune and more of a mandate, so I am now on 16 countries and counting!

My favorite U.S. destination is hands-down, Las Vegas! I also really love New Orleans and Boston. Admittedly, I've spent more time abroad than in the U.S. on my travels, so there's lots more I'd like to see.

I often get asked what my favorite trip is that I've ever taken. That's easy. Australia! I spent New Years Eve in Sydney several years ago, and then took a trip around the country to Melbourne, Uluru, Cairnes, etc. I loved Australia!

I am also something of a Europhile. I enjoy Europe, no matter where I am. I think it's because of their "work to live" philosophy, instead of the "live to work" philosophy we have here in the U.S.

My dream trip list right now includes Russia, Buenos Aires, Easter Island, the Galapagos, and more.

So thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope you find my posts "travelicious!"
