Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

Yeah, I almost went to Iceland last round, figured it wouldn't make it back around. Now I have to figure out where I planned on going next?

I mean, not really

Not if it means that you have no desire to see what the rest of the world is actually like

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

It just seems so American

I don't mean to give you a hard time about it

I'm actually taking my family to Costa Rica for Thanksgiving; I've never been there before, and most of them have never done any international traveling at all -- it's supposed to be a really nice and beautiful place, and definitely welcoming

Great pick!

If anyone not in the draft wants to randomize the third part of our trip, that would be nice.

nah, it's true that my trip isn't very adventurous. when i was younger i was much more interested in hanging out in some tiny village in rural china, or with jungle people in south america, or way up in tibet.

strangely, as i've aged i'm just not as interested. i'll take comfort over adventure.

If all your picks are just based on hot chicks, you could at least have the decency to post write ups.
