    Australia is near the top of my travel bucket list–after Peru and the Galapagos Islands, Alaska, an African safari in Botswana and before Costa Rica. I think I need to check out some of the items on your list before I move it up on mine.

      A long travel list – I know the feeling! The Galapagos Islands, Alaska and an African safari are on mine too – as well as Japan at cherry blossom time, Great Wall of China, Italy, Greece, New York… The list goes on!
