Thanks for playing! I loved reading everything. I want you to send me the details about volunteering walking the dogs!

There are so many things on the list that I love too (Santorini being my number one wish I could go). Although I did actually fill my want to get a dog, best decision ever!!
By the way, are you an UWSer? Lots of the places you mentioned seemed to be by me.
