Tokyo, JapanBarcelona, Spain - 2 failed attempts Toronto, CanadaMaui, HawaiiDubai, UAEMonaco, French RivieraZurich, Switzerland - 1 failed attemptCairo, EgyptRio de Janeiro, BrazilCrete or Athens, GreeceCompared to most of our well-traveled friends, PIC and I are probably the least traveled. Looking at this list and seeing the number of cities I've missed from the European contingent is simply disheartening.
