Decided to switch things up again with the website. Instead of having my travels (both near and far) linked to the blog page–they will be linked to this page instead (though some might also have their own blog posts as well).
This is where I’m going to list my bucket list of places that I’d like to visit. So far I’ve managed to check one or two things off the list, and now need to start planning on how I can try to check one to three things off the list a year (hopefully). Places that I’ve visited I’m going to start making pages for that will be linked to this page.
Bucket list of place I’d like to visit (or revisit in some cases):
I’d like to get back to the Islands at some point. I’d gone in 2009 to celebrate passing my qualifying exam in graduate school.
Yellowstone National Park
Europe (England–see London Page; France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Sweden, and Norway)

Take Safari Trip
See the Amazon
See Machu Picchu in Peru

Volcano National Park (Hawaii)
I’d like to go back to Volcano National Park with a better camera to be able to capture the lava flowing out at night, and just to see how much more it has spread since 2009. Currently the volcano is erupting outside the park, and numerous houses have been lost (but luckily no lives yet have been lost). So the volcano is on the march.
Great Salt Plains, Jet Oklahoma
Copan Ruins, Copan Honduras [Have been here–but none of the pictures that I took were digital; I need to invest in a scanner and start scanning these pictures in; I would love to visit again, but the country is now a little too dangerous to visit]
Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Carlsbad NM
White Sands National Monument
Mesa Verde National Park (Again have been here as well, but none of the pictures that I took were digital; once I invest in a good scanner I’ll start scanning those pictures in; though I would like to go back again to the national park).
Devil’s Den State Park (Arkansas)
Arches National Park
Badlands National Park
