Sometimes I enjoy planning our travel more than actually traveling. Mainly, because I’m usually alone, in a quiet place, reading and putting together our itinerary. I get my (temporary) fill of omnipotence without any complaints from the smaller people in our household about 1) being shortchanged of pool time, or 2) the unavailability of rectangular chicken nuggets.
And, by the way, I prefer the old school method of looking through glossy travel guides, as opposed to navigating through flash-ridden websites. Don’t look for my picture next to the definition of “early adopter.”
Our Go BIG plans for this spring and summer are coming together nicely! Now if only the price of gas would stop its precipitous climb.
These are the adventures we’ve planned so far:

World’s largest hot dog stand – Nathan’s Famous, Brooklyn
World’s largest collection of lilacs – Rochester, NY
World’s largest collection of electronic games – Rochester, NY
Frying pan used to make world’s largest pancake– Penn Yan, NY
World’s longest pleasure beach – Virginia Beach, VA
World’s largest gorilla – Virginia Beach, VA
World’s largest living history museum – Colonial Williamsburg, VA
