Where I've Been

Everybody's done this already. I'm only just getting to it because I'm a bitchy contrarian.

Not counting all the states I've passed through on road trips. California barely counts because I was, like, 8 weeks old:

or write about it on the open travel guide

Places I'd like to go to before I die: New Zealand, Australia, Iceland, Italy, Czechoslovakia - sorry, the Czech Republic - Hungary, Germany, Morocco, Greece, Ireland. Somewhere in South America or Africa. Japan, because I was really only there for a night. France, because I was only there for a weekend. And I'm always happy to visit the UK.

But perhaps I should think of something closer to home, that's worth a road trip. Oxford, Mississippi? Key West? A Great Ball of Twine?

Yikes. Methinks the image needs editing.

i was sad to see Tahiti not on the list. granted i was only there for about 2 hours while our plane to sydney refueled, but i did get off the plane and visit a gift shop! (i mean! the vatican city was on the list and i was there for about the same amount of time and also visted a gift shop!)
and that might have raised my 4% countries visited to somewhere around 4.1%

If Tahiti is its own country it ought to be on there. Maybe they forgot?

The Ball of Twine is just ok; it certainly is big. I went a few years ago with some friends who had heard the Weird Al song "The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota" and were inspired to take a road trip. I do recommend the Twine Ball Inn, located across the street from the ball. It has world-famous rhubarb pie. The glass gazebo that encases the ball had a bunch of bullet holes in it.

Love your site, by the way. It's one of many that I read when I should be working.

I love rhubarb pie. The Twine Ball Inn certainly knows how to market itself.

Thank you for reading!
