This is my family that I would love to take places in the world

Assuming the Mayans were wrong about the end of days, I look forward to knocking off a few of the destinations l have listed on my Bucket List. Having a baby now of course poses a whole new challenge and adventure in my future. But let us see how I rise to the occassion. I'm itching to travel to far away places after almost a year of inactivity due to a tough pregnancy with my soon to be delivered son. He is scheduled to be delivered by C-Section delivery on February 01, 2012.

I have spent many hours admiring my fellow travbuddies who have been to the very destinations I so long to visit. I have admired photos and read a great many travel blogs and reviews in the last 8 months.  If any of you has the destiinations below on your list of places to visit, I should love to have a group tour or join in sometimes after July 2012.

The newest addition to the family; Alexander
Milford Sound in New Zealand is at the top of my list now. I should like to make 100 countries, I currently have 87 countries visited.

I was also going through the list of the 1,000 travel destinations to see before one dies, compiled by the Travel Channel. It is quite a list and one that is worth looking at, if for nothing else, to get some inspiration. I have been around, but I found there are so many places that I want to visit/ see on that list. I began traveling more with my family in 2010.  I look forward to doing more family oriented travel as soon as Alexander can make it more than an hour on the road. Of course family travel becomes more challenging due to the expense involved and the safety of the children involved. The US gov't has also imposed some restrictions on single parents traveling with children etc.
