    Haha, I love it! LOVE it!!! I'm sure my bestseller is even BETTER than EPL – but if Julia Roberts played me, she'd be sued for false advertising!!

    This'd be a great post to link up to my 'Round the World' extravaganza #2 next week!!!

    Have a great day!!

    It is indeed a great practice to keep track of places you have been and things that you have done. Remembering those beautiful views along the travel can make you feel relax even for a while.
