Jealous! I would love to go somewhere out of the US...I've never left the US. Though I had a patient a few wks ago come in to see me for a pre-travel visit. She was going to Hawaii and her exact words to me were "since I'm going somewhere foreign I figured I better make sure I have all my shots updated."
This girl was younger than me so I'm sure she learned that Hawaii has been a state since before she was conceived. So trying very hard to not make her feel stupid, I gently informed her that Hawaii, being a US state very much like Oregon, did not have any special shots needed to be safe though I did tell her to stay out of the Ala Wai Canal unless she wanted to get a flesh eating bacteria. So there, according to her, I grew up somewhere "foreign." That counts, right?
This year our summer plans include a quick trip to New Orleans in 2 wks for a friend's wedding, camping for my birthday (hopefully my father in law will be feeling better in time for that trip), and then hopefully at least one weekend backpacking somewhere in the beautiful Oregon woods - because there's nothing I love better than feeding the mosquitos of the Oregon woods! That's just like donating blood, right? LOL! Then we've got to plan our 1st anniversary retreat. I'm thinking of going to the Tree house B&B in Southern Oregon. It's supposed to be like Swiss Family Robinson - one of my favorite movies from childhood. That's the nice thing about getting married on a friday, you're guaranteed to have your 1st anniversary land on a weekend day!
