I've Changed My Mind

The Pacific Northwest is the nicest climate I've ever lived it.  I was born in Juneau, Alaska and let me tell you, if you think it rains a lot in Seattle you have never been to Southeast Alaska.  Southeast Alaska gets 54.4 inches of rain a year while Seattle gets 37 inches.  

However, I did move to the Pacific Northwest at age 5 (almost) so I really don't remember Alaska very well.  But I am convinced that I lived in the tropics in a previous life because I love sunshine and hot weather - I even dream about hot sunny weather!  The letdown of waking up to another cold, gray, drizzly, Seattle day after dreaming about hot, sunny weather is a real bitch, let me tell you.

I belong here:


Or here:

Definitely here:


So forget teaching, I think I'm going to run away to Mexico and become a bartender or a beach bum.  I could really use some sun...

I guess beach-withdrawal is considered essential travel to Mexico, of course, you'll need to wear your face mask and all that jazz. It should look great with your bikini, LOL!

Oh yeah, I would be happy in any of those places pictured. I may live in a relatively warm climate but I do miss the water!!
