I was in Anchorage for work and gave my last $5bill to the bell ringer and went up to the 5th floor in the 5th Ave mall to the food court only to find out the hotel triple charged my debit card for the hotel room and used up all my space left on debit and I didnt have any food money. I didn't eat for two days. Nothing. Not a single thing. I now carry an emergency credit card for this reason alone.)
7. Been to Disneyland/world

I enjoyed the meme. I read through your Australia blogs also. WOW! I guess they forget to show all of the beautiful parts in books and on movies. What a wonderful trip!

Great scuba and Hawaii pics!

We went to Bora Bora for our honeymoon. LOVED it there - those over-the-water bungalows are hard to beat!
