She said she has seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa (and has the cheesy photo to prove it)...and so do I.
This reminded me that when I was overseas I was very conscience of the fact that a lot of friends had been in the same place that I was at that moment, at a different time. And it made me wonder if we somehow leave a small part of the essence of ourselves in the places we visit.
Then this morning as I read Megan's post I felt some kind of added connection with her as we have visited quite a few of the same places.
And then I had this idea...if you have any cheesy (or non-cheesy) photos of yourself in famous places that possibly a lot of us may have visited, how about posting them so we can all see what places in common we have visited. Who's in? Here are mine (I have way more cheesy than non-cheesy, sorry about that!). I'll be so excited if I see you in a photo similar to mine.
