The mailbox on Floreana
 My favorite cousin and his wife just returned from a trip to Peru and the Galapagos Islands, so this BBC Travel article on The World’s Most Charming Mailbox attracted my attention. It’s a wonderful story – be sure to read it.

At the end of the piece, the BBC asked readers to take part in an on-line poll about travel. The first Question was this:
How often do you travel internationally?
Select only one
1 to 3 trips/year - The destination matters more than the journey
4 to 6 trips per/year - Home is important, but travel is better!
7 to 10 trips/year - I am on the road more often than not
I'm nomadic. I don't even have a home address!
Votes 8,506

Wow! I would have loved to click on that last option. I can’t even click on the first one. Perhaps if they’d included the option of 4 to 6 trips in your lifetime, I could have gone with that one.  With 8,506 votes at that time, it seems like there are plenty of people who could select one of the options. Lucky ducks.
