If Shallots or Milt's was up there at the top you'd probably make the trek.

Why not just have an uber messenger pick it up for you?

Oh gosh. You like to ask tough questions, huh?

I honestly don't believe I could pick just one... but if I had to pick two, I'd probably say New Zealand and Cape Town. To my mind, they both must be in the top 10 most beautiful places on earth.

Which is not say that Kauai wasn't wonderful. Or that Singapore wasn't interesting. Or that Bali isn't worth the trip.

But New Zealand coupled with an RV with Milford Sound... and Cape Town coupled with Table Mountain, Cape Point, and Kosher food... they're tough to beat.

(Disclaimer: My answer my change tomorrow... or in ten minutes.)
