Last night we went to dinner at the home of some good friends, Jim and Sally. Jim and Sally have done a lot of traveling in their years together, but have one destination that is their hands-down favorite, which explains why they've spent five vacations there. It just so happens that Dan and I are considering a trip there next year, ourselves, to celebrate our 40th anniversary. So, gracious people that they are, Jim and Sally invited us to their home for a typical meal from that region, and to share with us personal stories and information about traveling there. We came home, late last night, with a bag full of literature, stomachs full of delicious food, and heads full of dreams!
I'm keeping the destination a secret for now. After all, our hope is to go in the fall of 2009, and it is too soon to know whether our plans will all come together. I thought it might be fun, though, as we move forward in our preparations, to provide hints - vague ones, early on; and more definitive ones, later . Can you figure it out before I tell? I'll bring back a souvenir for the first person to leave a comment with the correct guess. [Close family and friends who have inside knowledge are disqualified. But maybe I'll bring you back a souvenir, anyway :-) ]
HINT #1: We will need airline reservations.
