I checked my Delta frequent flyer account and found that I now have 100,000+ miles. Apparently that's enough for two round-trip tickets overseas. I think MoBob will use one to visit Morocco this summer, and the other...I guess the world's pretty open.

MB still holds a Moroccan passport which presents some challenges as to where we can go together. But off the top of my head:

* Montreal
We both have friends in Montreal and I haven't been in over ten years.

* Istanbul
Moroccans don't need visas and I can get one at the airport.

* Bangkok
We can both get visas at the airport.

* Marseilles/Montpellier/Sete and maybe Paris?
Believe it or not, apart from transiting through Paris-CDG airport, we've never been to France together. MB's gotten a French visa several times so I'm sure it won't be a problem.

In the end, though, I just want to hang out at home.

Ooo, I went to Istanbul once and really, really want to go back. I vote you go there :-)

I was there in Oct. 2002 (for work of course) and definitely want to go back - plus it'd be interesting for M.

You hate traveling! I vote for home (or maybe North Carolina?). But if you must, how about France to visit Mohamed's sister?

thanks for the postcard, btw.

Too true! We will definitely visit but it'll be a road trip I'm sure! Miles expire in 2011 so might as well plan now.

Maybe M can get a visa to France and then sneak over....
