We played Pandemic with some awesome friends of ours, who we adore because they'll come over on short notice to play games with us. As our game wrapped up, we began talking about one particular couple in the ward who had racked up enough airmiles to fly anywhere they wanted to, and they were just trying to decide where to go! Looking at the Pandemic board, and seeing all the different places in the world, we began daydreaming about which location we would choose. My friend wanted beaches, sun, and islands.
I wanted Russia, Denmark, and Sweden which is funny because I've been to all three before. On top of that, I wanted something so culturally different and out-there; Kolkata, Chennai, or what about Kinshasa? I'd never heard of these places before Pandemic, that's for sure.
But, beaches would be nice, too. I keep thinking back to far-too-long-ago when we went to CA. I want another vacation like that, with people I adore, no rush to come home and some sunshine.
