Birthday travels

Last year, I spent my birthday on a dive boat, anchored in Pirate's Cove at Catalina Island in southern California.

The year before that, I celebrated my 40th birthday at La Diferencia, my friend's restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico.

In 2005, I visited New York City for the first time on my birthday, having no idea that I'd be living there in the near future.

Back in 2001, I found myself in Parma, Italy on September 7, enjoying some fantastic Italian food.

This year, I did not travel anywhere on my birthday—but a week from now, I'll enjoy a belated celebration in Curacao, an island in the West Indies off the coast of Venezuela.

And next year? Who knows where I'll be? That's what's so exciting about the future!
