Machu Picchu = 52/100 on my Hillman Wonders list

For many of you who follow this Trini’s blog, you’ll know that my first source of travel inspiration was the Hillman Wonders website. There wasn’t anything super special about the list … I even wrote an open letter to Howard Hillman about the low placement of Trinidad … still didn’t get a response. One would think that with no response from him, I would take him off my website as a source of travel inspiration. It doesn’t work that way … his list will always be the source of my main bucket list. If you’re a traveller, you need to have a bucket list.
I even keep a photo gallery of my Hillman Wonders list … not that I could forget where I’ve been. Actually, scratch that … there have been times where I’ve forgotten where I’ve been. It’s completely embarrassing. It’s like forgetting that whether you’ve been to the Pitch Lake or Devil’s Woodyard in Trinidad. If you’re wondering about my travel inspiration … here’s 11 reasons why I travel or my bucket list page.
Here’s a couple of my favorite pics from that gallery.

#30 – Ballooning in Cappadocia, Turkey
#42 : The Canals of Venice, Italy
#58 Mezquita of Cordoba, Spain
#85 : Night view of the Djemma El Fna in Marrakech, Morocco
#82 Steps into the ocean at Santorini, Greece

As for Machu Picchu … here’s a couple videos from my hikes to keep you entertained … especially with my very poor cinematographical skills. Anyway my point is … you’ll never have anywhere to travel, if you don’t have your dream list … it’s Monday, go out and make one – don’t wait till you’re dying to start living!
