We have a Winner!

Queerstork guessed correctly!  We are going to Bali and then to the Gilli Islands off the coast of Lombok.
Lizzie from Two Chicks in Pursuit of a Babe guessed Java / Bora Bora so I'm giving props to her as well since Java is sooo close and Bora Bora was on the list of places we were considering.

I had a feeling these two would be the winners as Queerstork and I are neck-in-neck for countries visited and Lizzie is a world traveler, too.  Well Done Ladies!
If both of you will PM me, I'll get your details and you'll get a free I Love NY T-shirt!

This contest really weeded out the map junkie/geography students, didn't it?   Years ago, I got this laminated world map that I mounted on foam core and framed.  It hangs in our bathroom and has tiny colored push pins with all the places we've been.  Every time I get home from a trip, I can't wait to add another pin.  I'm out to conquer that world map. When we have guests, they tend to stay in the loo longer then usual!  
Yes, Rachel, you are right.  We plan to keep right on traveling with this baby. It will be different, but it will be wonderful and we can't wait!!

When JD and I first started dating he had one of the wall-sized national geographic maps hanging above his bed. But he took it down after about a year (during which we traveled from Morocco to Iceland to China in a single summer) because it was just too tempting for me to lie in bed and stare at the map and plan trips ... so now we have the much less helpful Jasper Johns painting of the 50 United States hanging in the bedroom ... it doesn't even have city names.

so cool! i was wildly googling starwood properties in southeast asia to get a hint (the event producer in me saw the reference to using the points) but work got in the way and my quest for the answer was thwarted. sounds like a wonderful trip! my australian friends rave about bali.

Hooray! I win!
If you're on Facebook, I highly recommend the Traveller IQ Challenge game... that is addictive.

Sorry, with three posts in a row I'm being annoying - but how do I PM you?

Hey, I was only a couple thousand miles off. Okay, so further, but not bad for a non-travel-buff. :)

I'm a winner! Or, sort of. I'm a runner up! Yay! How do I pm you??? xo

We're considering a June/July trip to Indonesia so we're revisiting this part of your blog for tips. I was going to ask what you'd choose between Indonesia and Peru/Bolivia/Ecuador but I suspect Indonesia would be it.

I can't wait to add more pins to my laminated and framed world map-on-foam-core. We both have one of these? Too funny. xos
