Soooo I just finished my annual travel budget template...I'll spare you the gory deets on how much of my income I'm willing to allocate to travel. Hey, don't judge me...some people love expensive shoes...I love to travel ;-) So this is my 2013 travel schedule, but trust me I'll be revising  a few times because I just don't have the vacay days to support this much jaunting...blegh

Buenos Aires, Argentina- it's been a few years since I've touched down in my FAVORITE city...I've never been during Spring/Summer and I can only imagine how gorge the city is in the sun!

Girlfriend Getaway: Europe - I'm celebrating a milestone birthday this summer and what better way to celebrate than to hit Europe with my, French men, history, Italian men, yummy food and great booze!

London - I looooooveeeeee London and all of its offerings (family, fashion, accents) - FOOD IS NOT ONE OF THEM ;-) This trip will be all about my uncle's 50th bday and hopefully I can squeeze in a pro football match (REAL FOOTBALL).

LeftCoast - * I'm going going, back back, to Cali Cali * it's been eons since I've taken a trip to the West Side and I think it's time for me to sprinkle some of my fast talking, quick walking, cynical BrookLanta humor on the Califoniaaannnnssss. I would love to hit San Diego (yes, I've been saying this for years), but minimally I need to visit my prima in LaLaLand.

TDot - My family reunion is in Toronto (pronounced Tronno) this summer!!! Yup, the secret is out...I was born into a tribe of NOMADS! 

New Yawwwkkk - *Start spreading the news * What's a year without touching my other home base :-)

I'm in Miami B*tch! (nope, that never gets old) - A quick 90 minute flight and I'm enjoying most of the perks of island life! As much as I try to deny it...I really do love Miami for all its classy ratchetness and  nouveau riche!
Jamaica - Well of course you knooooww I have to get my carnival fix, beach fix, family fix and most importantly RUM fix...#priorities, who needs 'em

Doesn't look like I'll be squeezing in any new destinations this year (I barely know how I'm squeezing in the existing list)...but in the event that I win the lotto...I would love to add San Andres - Columbia, Split- Croatia and Baku- Azerbaijan to my list #ImJustSayin
Stay tuned for my posts on how I prepare for these trips - the farewatching, the hotel picking, the packing, the's sure to be a beautiful mess!
