Sidebar: I’m sort of sad that list wasn’t included in the Hugh Grant/Tony Blair thing going on here:
In that singular moment I knew that there was no going back. No matter how expensive or scary getting on a plane was, I couldn’t stop. I promised myself then and there that I would try to get out of the country at least once a year—if timing and finances allowed—and I’ve been blessed to have been able to stick to that promise. These are the little, perfect moments I live for, and the ones that keep me coming back for more.
