Lately I was relaxing in Greece after a quick trip to Spain. This was all done without suffering passport photo application and TSA hassles. Over the last year I’ve even been to visit some of the Italian wineries after a quick wink at the French Rivera. It didn’t matter that I hadn’t packed my bathing suit or that I can’t handle two drops of wine without getting dizzy. I like to travel. And I do so by staying cozy in my living room. I am a bigtime homebody but I am interested in what other countries are like. I make great use of our library’s travel videos and our current guide is nice guy Rick Steves, who is personable, fun, and easy to travel with.
I may never get around to traveling the world (although I did get to Europe when I turned 21–*ahem* a few years ago) I have enjoyed seeing the sights and should I dust off the passport I will know where to go, what to do, and how to do so on a retired teacher’s budget.
Others who live the adventuresome life by traveling all over the world definitely get my thumbs up (see Rick) and one special traveler, adventurer, and blogger is Lesley Carter who has the incredibly popular Bucket List Productions
blog. She has been all over the world and has had some amazing adventures. I admire her pluck and I enjoy her blog and so I cast my vote for her as a contestant in the Biggest Baddest Bucket List Contest
. Swing over and watch her video, get inspired, and give her a vote.

Another person who inspires me is Matt Harding
, who is a phenomena all in his own. Watch him dance all over the world and then check out his website
. His story is just as amazing as his videos. I smile every time I watch one.
And no, his videos are not a hoax. Check out his hoax explanation–too funny.
For those of you, like me, who desire to travel the world from the comfort of your living room. Enjoy your travels with Rick, Lesley, and Matt. Pass the popcorn.
