Valentine’s Day in Azeroth

I have often considered romantic getaways in exotic locales….tropical islands, Nordic chalets, Xanadu…the usuals.  Afterall, I love my husband, and I love travel, so what could be better?  But never in a million years did I consider the virtual realm of Azeroth to be the ideal Valentine’s Day excursion!

He rode up on a giant warsteed, whisked me off to distant lands, killed multitudes of creepy creatures that were threatening my life, gave me gifts of love and practicality (armor and bags for holding my loot).

Also, it’s damned hard to wash the highlighter marks of the computer monitor…..
