33 Travel Loves

Today is my 33rd birthday. I’m celebrating by taking the day off of work, treating myself to an huge coffee & relaxing pedi, before seeing the film Ballet 422 (I’m such a closet ballet geek). Tonight, B & I are going out for a quiet dinner. To celebrate my new age, I thought I’d share, in no particular order, 33 of my travel loves.
