There's good news for those of us who love to travel, but don't have the funds for a bus ticket, let alone a plane ticket. Rumor has it - from those rumor-mongering neurophysicists - that PLANNING for a trip is as stimulating to the mind as actually being in an exotic environment, feeling the sand between your toes, or smelling the cool mountain breezes, or listening to the calls of the unseen birds in the jungle canopy. The even BETTER news is that researching, planning, and envisioning your travels presumably prepares your mental wiring to be able to say YES to the universe when, out of the blue, the stars align and a ticket to Aruba appears in your mailbox. Quantum physics suggests that we attract that which we attend to. It is my desire to attract the opportunity to explore as many places on the globe as possible. So, I'm willing to give it a try. And I'm willing to let my fellow Dabblers choose my first destination - either Scotland or Greece. Please comment with pros/cons/gutfeelings/randomvotes, and then once the choice is made, we will start planning over on the Study Abroad page. You may all join me in planning for a trip to the chosen location, or follow the same process in preparing for your dream trip. The polls are now OPEN.

I'm there already...
