Friday Favorites : Travel

I have travel fever, lately, and nothing to do about it, besides post about how travel crazy I am. And as soon as I've been somewhere a few days, I know I'd get homesick.
This is one of the only foreign places I've been, besides Canada. This is the day that Greg almost dropped his GoPro (camera) in a Jamaican river. I also got a cool scar from when our tubes slammed together going down the rapids, and I ripped a piece of skin off my wrist.

It didn't hurt that bad, but I admit I couldn't stop thinking of horror movies where alien parasites take over your body.

So here are my Friday favorites, travel edition:

17 Amazing Trips for Animal Lovers
Volunteering to work with pandas. Hugging and feeding pandas every day sounds like a place that I would love to be.

Angel Falls, Venezuela. The real life inspiration for Up! All of these places are incredible. I could daydream about them all day.

This site is hilarious; it's a stockpile of weird and funny reviews from, such as:

"the weather was a big disappointment first off- it was cold, wet, rainy, windy - felt like being back in UK. Then you only get to POKE a dolphin, the whole thing is so restricted, it makes you think, “I’ve payed a grand for this, and they arent letting me even give it a proper hug or whatever. Also, the guy went nuts when my finger was within 30cm of its blowhole." - jadedghiacand

Honestly, I am lost. I have a terrible sense of direction. Abominable. But this quote makes me feel better. Maybe I am just enjoying my ride.

Just don't do this:
