Top Travel Memories

Travelers are often asked about their favorite travel memories. It's always funny to think about which ones stick out in your mind. Some are crazy. Some are nerdy. Some are weird. But all are fun. (Does that also make me crazy, nerdy and weird? Hmm.) Anyways, here's some of my favorites so far.
