Loafing with Rick Steves, GlobeTrekker, Burt Wolf and Rudy Maxa.

June 25th, 2011 · No Comments · travel

One of my favorite things to do when I get the chance (which is rare with an 11 year old in little league and an almost 2 year old all over the place), is to LOAF.

Who are the best loafers? Well, cats of course. 98 percent of their entire existence is hanging around the house in one spot or another loafing. Ahhhh….. the thought. That’s what Sundays are for right?

And if one is fortunate enough to have done all the cleaning, to get the kids out of your hair (not in a bad way as I watch my daughter wrestle with the iron board which she won’t be satisfied with until she topples it), and LOAF. I have recorded as many episodes of Rick Steve’s “Travels in Europe”, Globetrekker and other such travel shows (Burt Wolf and Smart Traveler with Rudy Maxa), and just dream away.

One of the things that makes watching these shows so easy to identify with is the associations I’ve had when I’ve traveled. Some of my favorite experiences include the South of France, Northern Arizona and the Republic of Georgia. What else makes these shows so appealing is that there is a high likelihood that I’ll never get to go to the majority of the destinations visited in these shows. I was asked recently if I could choose 5 vacations where I would go.

They are:

1. Israel
2. Mediterranean (Greece, Turkey and Sicily)
3. British Isles (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales)
4. South Pacific
5. Egypt

I wouldn’t use Travelspot to go to any of these places (see previous post). Meanwhile you can see my own version of GlobeTrekker on my trip to Tbilisi.
