Getting away from the baby for a while, here are some trips that we would love to take:

Bali and Java, Indonesia: this would be great for Maggie when she was a little bit older. Old enough to appreciate the monkey forest and the beach, little enough to still be relatively portable.

Portland, OR and Seattle, WA: visit all those microbreweries in Portland, take the train up to Seattle, enjoy the local music and food scene.

Wellington, New Zealand: as a potential next location, I’d love to check it out first. Tom was there in February and declared it “the perfect city”: great climate, good public transportation, lots of great wine and food, good people.

Tokyo: Japan sounds like fun and I’ve never been to a country that doesn’t have an alphabet.
