Carole picked a great Ten on Tuesday topic this week. . . but I'm going off book. I'm suffering from jet lag. I miss the sidewalk cafés. And my morning pain au chocolat. And, well, for that matter -- spring! So today. . . I bring you my own Ten on Tuesday. I'll call it. . . Ten Great Things About My Travels.
