I could win gold for getting comfortable in a coach airline seat and reading a novel whilst traversing the big pond on my way to my favorite place in the world......EUROPE!!!!

Are you saying, xxxx, that I should share my gold with you?

I could get a silver for finding the best crepes in Paris!

People who can sleep for hours at a time on an overseas flight deserve Gold Medals.

I, however, deserve the medal for being the fastest at planning the best trips. Umpteen years of experience and practice, I guess.

I get the gold for spending the most on useless souveniers but boosting Europe's economy. I think Great Britain owes me about 10,000 pounds in VAT refunds.

I am probably worthy of the Gold Medal for finding the best bargains for airfare and hotels. And based on the number of email requests that I have received for my travelogue on Prague, I would have to guess that I would be awarded the Gold Medal for answering each one of them.

I should win the Gold for putting up with all of those men following me around Italy, whistling and making those kissy noises. I swear, sometimes it is so much trouble being a beauty! Which by the way, is what I already won a medal for~

Sorry Leslie, I am definitely the gold medal winner in the bargain airfare/hotel department. Almost to a fault. And I also take home the gold for being the lightest packer! I win nothing for planning ahead, yet score high points for spontaneity and impulsiveness! Bronze in chocolate!

My husband says I get the Gold Medal for efficient use of space in packing -- suitcase, carryon, car trunk (boot), shopping bag, you name it.

But I think I get points off for disastrously chaotic pocketbook.
