Let’s start with, “Where do I want to go?”
Do I want to go to the Caribbean? How about full passage through the Panama Canal with Mexican Riviera? That sounds good. But Oktoberfest in a gay tent with guys from all over the world drinking steins and munching huge pretzels sounds so great. I don’t know. Ooh, how about Istanbul? Like Shopping? The Grand Bazaar with over 3,000 shops. Can we shop or can we? If we added the Greek Islands and Egypt to Istanbul would that be fun?
