Return of the Friday Five
It has been a few weeks since I've done one of these, so I figured I should get back into it...
1. What's the last place you traveled to, outside your own home state/country?
Vegas baby! Read about it, or See it!

2. What's the most bizarre/unusual thing that's ever happened to you while traveling?
On my honeymoon, Julie and I got stuck at the docks and they wouldn't let us board the cruise ship because we were missing some paperwork. We finally got it faxed and notarized, when they told us we couldn't board the ship because they didn't allow unmarried couples under 25 years old to share a state room. "But it is our HONEYMOON!" we protested... But still they would not let us on, because we had no proof that we were married. So we showed the guy my wedding ring with the dame date engraved on it, pictures from the digital camera from the ceremony, and a book of matches with our names and the date. And they finally (after 4 hours) let us on the damned boat...

3. If you could take off to anywhere, money and time being no object, where would you go?
Hmmm. Vegas is always an option... Greatest town on earth, and if money was no object, it would be even better! But Probably Europe (France and Italy in particular.) There is this little café in the shadow of the Paris Opera House with the best snails, and I've always wanted to take Julie there!

4. Do you prefer traveling by plane, train or car?
Plane. Though, there is something to be said about the good ol' American road-trip. The ultimate, "it's not the destination, it's the journey."

5. What's the next place on your list to visit?
New York (see a taping of Conan), Louisiana (I have a lot of family there that Julie has never met. Plus the FOOD!), Japan (always wanted to go there), Europe (see above), and Chicago (more food, more family.)
