Other than a quick trip down to Nashville, we stayed close to home this year. That doesn't mean I'm not thinking about travel, though, dreaming of new destinations or old favorites. Recently, we watched Princess Bride again (such a great movie) and some of the scenes triggered my wanderlust. I started to google the film locations, especially for the scene where Buttercup pushes Westley down a steep slope into a valley. I found out that valley is Cave Dale, near Castleton in Derbyshire Peak District in England.
And...another business trip. It was a rainy few days in Nashville during our visit and we spent most of our down time on Broadway, visiting the bars and listening to music. I had a GREAT time, and will definitely go back.
Maybe next time the weather will be nice enough for some hiking, because it is beautiful down there!
Another business trip, this time to San Francisco, gave me the opportunity to meet up with a friend who played tour guide and showed me some of the highlights. First stop: Chinatown. I loved the light posts, the lanterns, and all the signs. I also enjoyed the shopping.
