I am a little excited about this post; it has been in the making for the past week or so. For Christmas my friend, Torie, gave me a set of mugs that have different city names and landmarks on them. I LOVE THESE CUPS!!! I've actually been to 4 of the 6 destinations. Which ones you ask? Well, let me know show you. :)

I've been to New York a few times in my life, but I'm going to take you the fall of 2008 when my friend Joy and I went to Philly for a week. We spent one day in D.C. and one day in New York where we met up with my friend Allison! That's right, we rode the ferris wheel INSIDE Toys R' Us at Times Square. We also befriended Jason, the ferris wheel operator and Obama fan.


Ok, I've only been to California once, and I have NO CLUE where we went. BUT...on my return from Japan I stopped in San Fran.
I was beyond blessed that my 8 hour layover turned into a 1 hour layover!! Here I am waiting for my flight. I was catching up on some textings...2 weeks away from the phone...not gonna lie, it was pretty nice. On the left you see a Japanese treat!! It was a huge cheese puff...I'm sad I only grabbed 2 for the plane rides back. They're delish!!

"I think I'm going Japanese...I really think so!"

My next cup takes us to Tokyo. I haven't officially been there, but I flew through and I mean come on...I've at least BEEN to Japan, so this TOTALLY counts. :) My 1st weekend back in the states I was craving some sushi and missing some Jana and Robert, so I ventured out for some food. There is an HMart by my house that carries lots of Asian grocery foods, and actually has a little food court. I decided to try the spicy bento box. It was pretty good!! I'm excited to try it again.

I loved that there was always a random cut out. :)

We now head west to the city of love, the city I love...Paris.
(I found a Paris scene on my computer!)

I've been to Paris twice and I honestly don't know why I love it so much. I think it's because I feel like I can hide and escape from people. I don't look like a tourist, but if I need to I can play that card. This past trip was one for the books. I mean, just look at these 2 appetizing pictures! The beauty of just the architecture and the beauty of the culture and people. I loved being at Sacre Coeur.
My hostel was a 5 minute walk from there, and I spent as much time as I could there. I adored the people watching. Studying the tourists and the locals. I'm getting excited just thinking about it! I would love to return, but I also want to visit more countries.

Two places I can add to my list are Shanghai and Rome. I never thought I'd be visiting the eastern world like I did, but I'm excited to possibly travel to China! I also never saw myself hitting up Rome. I mean I love art and I love men, so you'd think this would be a no brainer decision! Yet, for some reason I just haven't made it that way. Soon my friends...soon!!
