My World Cup Journey


This afternoon, I booked the final flight and accommodations for my upcoming trip to Brazil and Argentina. I've been saving and planning for this trip since the last World Cup ended, in July of 2010. It's hard to believe it's only months away. I've also submitted a guest post on packing for the World Cup over at Her Packing List - watch for it! Writing my bio for the piece had me reminiscing about the journey it's taken to get here, a journey that's (not to sound dramatic, but...) lasted literally half my life.

My Nordic Top Ten Wishlist

Majestic Norway 

As a traveler, the Nordic region has never really been a place that calls to me. My brother visited Finland and Sweden on a "sports ambassador" trip the summer before he entered high school, and brought me back a pretty awesome hat, but I never felt a "pining for the fjords" myself.
