The Short List

Published by at 11:28 pm under Random Musings,Travel

Do you know what Brittany and I do when we’re bored?

1. Eat
2. Talk about what we should eat next

But this lazy Sunday afternoon we were pretty full from lunch, and we already knew what we would be having for dinner…so we found ourselves in unusual and unsettling territory. Of course, there do exist rarely employed alternatives for just such emergencies:

3. Talk about the places from our trip that we miss
4. Fight to the death

Oddly, there are no other options. Because I’m afraid of Brittany’s unusual strength, I quickly started asking her which places from our trip she misses the most. Before long, she was beautifully and safely distracted at the computer, reading our old blog posts and breathing sighs of reminiscence. And instead of fighting to the death, we talked about which blog entries are our favorites, now that we have the benefit of hindsight. We each have our own peculiar favorites, but it wasn’t hard to agree on the ones that make us both smile. For those of you who prefer to walk on the CliffsNotes side of life, please enjoy the following short list…our own hand-selected “best of the best.”

In no particular order:

  1. Trekking in Thailand with Johnnie Walker
  2. An Unexpected Meeting in Cambodia
  3. Our Greek Music Video
  4. Top 5 Tips for Not Looking Like an American
  5. Brittany Gets a Tempting Marriage Proposal in Laos
  6. Ben Eludes the Policia in Seville
  7. Ben is Caught by the Policia in Barcelona
  8. A Photo Journey in Chiang Mai, Thailand
  9. Won’t You Take Me to Monkey Town?
  10. The Motorcycle Diaries in Vietnam

    What about passing the time thinking about food you had on your travels? That is one thing I like to do. From Cherry Soup in Hungary, to Sweet Rolls in China, food is my favorite thing.
