I've been to 2 places on the list! (the Cotswolds & Civita) Makes me feel cool.

Snowdonia is one of the most incredible places ... it gets more beautiful each time I go. I'm sure you'll love it. Already looking forward to your Snowdonia photos!

You are a lucky man to dream of such places... and my guess is you will actually cross them off that list one by one. I live in Nebraska and rarely make it as far as Colorado. Be happy that you can dream so big.

If you ever go to Otavalo you have to call me. I own a farm a couple of miles north of the Market. =)

And by the way, if you like Otavalo you have to check: Cotacachi, Cuicocha, Ibarra, San Pablo, Natabuela, Atuntaqui, San Miguel de Ibarra.

I have a house in deepest darkest Gaelic Donegal. If you're ever in the UK or Ireland, drop me an email and I'll put you up.
