Perpetually Peregrine

Monday, October 19, 2009
Added links to more destinations in my ever-growing list of links deep down below at the bottom of this blog page. Added links to . . .

  • Belgium (not been there . . . yet)
  • Denmark (not been there . . . yet)
  • England (lived there for about 3½ years, when I was a teenager; lived in the village of Shenington, and later in Bloxham; this was during my high school years)
  • Guam (been there; was a stop-over when I moved to Okinawa and again when I moved to Thailand)
  • Japan (lived there for about 3½ years, when I was very young; lived on the island of Okinawa; went to kindergarten there, in fact)
  • Philippines (been there; was a stop-over on the return trip from Thailand)
  • Poland (not been there; have had several friends over the years from there; currently have one friend who lives there, in Bialystok; good reason to go visit, if you ask me)
  • Scotland (been there; visited when I lived in England)
  • Sweden (not been there; for some reason, though, I've liked Sweden and have wanted to go there, even to live, since I was about 16 or 17 years old)
  • Switzerland (not been there . . . yet)
  • Thailand (as with Japan, lived there for 3½ years, but this was four years after we had left Japan, so I was 11 years old when we moved there; my junior high school days were spent in Bangkok)
  • Turkey (been there; was a stop-over on my first trip to England, before I moved to England)
  • Vietnam (been there; was a stop-over on the way to Thailand; wasn't allowed to get off the plane, however, as this was at the height of the Vietnam War)
  • Wake Island (been there; a stop-over on the way to Japan)

I've been to a lot of places, and I'd like to go to even more. I'd like to change those "stop-overs" to actual visits. I am, as always, perpetually peregrine.
FOOTNOTE: Did another bit of customization to the code for this blog. The default bullet for unordered lists was a disc. In fact, that's always the default, unless you change it. Wanting to be diff'ent, I changed it to a circle.
