Keep Your Seatbelt Fastened

And the countdown UP begins again!
Last year I chronicled my travels on my blog.
 I spent 87 nights away from home, and loved every minute of it.
Well, it's a new year, so time for a clean slate.
It will be interesting to see how close I come to last year's finish.

I rang in the New Year in Key West, Florida (Night 1 of 2011) and since then I've been on 2 mini-adventures.
Here are a few pictures of the fun...
Puerto Rico 
1.28.11-1.31.11 Nights 2 & 3 
It snowed eight inches the day before we left for Puerto Rico.
And it was cold.
Like reaaaalllly cold.
But enter a pre-planned trip to an amazingly warm and tropical location,
and you've got yourself one happy camper.
ME!

We spent most of our time relaxing on the beach and by the pool, but we also went hiking in the El Yunque Rainforest (a must-do!)
I thawed right out the second my feet hit the sand...
I felt grateful to Puerto Rico for a respite from the snow.
We will definitely make our way there again!

Disney World, Florida  
2.4.11- 2.6.11 Nights 4 & 5
We made a quick trip to Disney World this past weekend, and it was totally, magically awesome.
We spent 10 straight hours at Magic Kingdom, took in 2 parades and a fireworks show, sang the night away at a dueling piano bar, and even got to ride my all-time favorite roller coaster, Space Mountain, twice. 
In the front seat.
Bam.

That's what I'm going for!

The El Yunque shots are out of this world. And I also love the fireworks over the castle. I've gone to Disneyworld so many times, I probably have more pics of the parks than any other pictures.

I'm just a little jeal'. All of my vacations these days are spent on the couch watching the Travel Channel. Your photos are fantastic, BTW.

Thanks for linking up!
