The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

amazing list...let's hope that, with the sales of your books, you'll be visiting these places very, very soon!

Thanks Janet, and rus. And thanks for the good vibes! From your lips to the heavens, rus.

As for why...the biggest reason is because I studied Asian Art & Architecture in college and fell in love with the Taj Mahal and also (which I cannot believe I forgot to list on my 13) Angkor Wat, which my brother visited last year.

So that's my 14th: Angkor Wat.

(And Janet, thanks for the Mr. Kin--er, I mean Mr. Linky info.)

What? You don't want to visit Alabama? I swear we have indoor plumbing nowadays. ;-)

If I made a list of places I wanted to visit Italy would be number 1.

I did this same list 2 weeks ago. You have alot of the same places that I did!

Ah, to be wandering again. Last night Lancelot and I were talking about all the places we'd love to go: Africa on safari, Vietnam, New Zealand, Peru...

I would love to see these places, too! But, as a cat, I suppose the best trip I hope to take is a stay in a clean litterbox.

I can't wait to read your stories when you visit these locations!

Great TT!

Thanks for stopping by, Kukka and Gypsy. (I'm wondering how the typing's going for you, Kukka. Do the pads get in the way of your paws?)

I would love to go to Peru too. My brother and stepfather hiked to Macchu Picchu some years ago and I saw the photos. Gorgeous.

Colleen, great name. ;-) I'm sure your list is similar because we have so much in common.

May I suggest a new title? How about 13 places I want to visit before I start back at the top of this list again? :-)

My TT is up.

That's a great list! I'd love see all those places, too.

I do a TT when I can remember. Or when I manage to create a list of 13 things.

I plan to try and create a list of 13 vampire authors debuting next year for my last TT of the year.

PS I don't think we got Lilith month after all. Sad.

I've traveled overseas a bit and long to do more. Someday.

(pssst, I just added "The Rest Falls Away" to my wishlist on amazon!)

Okay, so how cool is it that you are an author? I feel like i'm in the presents of greatness! Thanks for coming and checking out my blog!

Great list....I would love to go to all of those places too!

Zeek! May I just do a little teeny *squee*? I know it's not professional, but I can't help it.

Ahem.

Colleen, there's no great presence here. LOL. Glad you came by and came back. Hope you haunt us regularly.

Annie, great list. I don't know why I didn't put Thailand on my list. I think I'm going to need to do an extension of the list for a different Thursday Thirteen.

Jersey Girl, I've been about that close to the real Taj Mahal too. Maybe some day.

Tracie, thanks for coming by!

This just makes me yearn for vacation. I didn't go anywhere all summer, and now I'm just desperate.

Great list--mine would only change a few I think. I'll post to my blog and not crowd you up here.

Hi Colleen,
If it's not too much trouble, can you explain to me how to get the extra Thursday Thirteen code so as to allow people to leave their links so that I can make that little visitor table?

Sorry to bug you with this, but I can't seem to figure it out.
