From time to time I provide links and photos of some places I've really enjoyed. For example, did you know that southern Illinois has a cypress swamp? No 'gators, pretty cool.

I've been to Japan about 6 times. If you plan to go to Japan, here are a bunch of helpful links:

I went to Mongolia with my husband in 1997. All we had to do was call 1-800-DIG-DINO. (I doubt that telephone number is still in service, so please don't try it.) Please check out my husband's view of the trip to Mongolia.

Overall, I'm not much of a traveler. I tend to enjoy most indulging in the area where I live. Some of my favorite local places are listed on my other sites.
