Wanderlust replaces the din of Carnival
Another Grenadian carnival has come and gone. The incessant booming base of the Soca music that we lived with day and night has given way to sounds more typical of the marina, roads, and nearby shipping port. The relative silence is quite shocking, actually.

It’s interesting to me that, almost immediately after carnival ended, we both had a very strong urge to get moving again. Even though we’re booked in to the marina for another couple of days to complete some projects, we really prefer time spent at anchor to that tied to a dock.
While we have resigned ourselves to spending the remainder of H-season in this area, or at least keeping the boat here, we’ve been spending quite a bit of time lately dreaming of our future travels. In addition to Patagonia, which is still very much on our radar, we have been compiling a list of other places that we’d like to visit. To help with this planning, one of my most frequently consulted websites as of late has been Google Maps. In spite of the traveling that we’ve already done, it’s amazing how little of the world that we have actually seen!

Where would you most like to travel to?
Fueled by my wanderlust, I started a little poll on Facebook yesterday, asking our friends to list the top five countries in their must-visit list.
To kick things off, I picked:
- Patagonia (Argentina/Chile) – Sorry, cheating, that’s two.
Rebecca’s list included:
- Czech Republic
