Reports have been swirling about Mitt Romney's upcoming three-nation excursion to the U.K., Poland and Israel, with most analysts agreeing it's intended to beef up his foreign policy credentials.

However, Romney's itinerary -- which has been leaked by an anonymous source -- seems to indicate otherwise.

Turns out, Romney's trip will indeed consist of three nations, but not those offered by the campaign, for he apparently will be visiting:

1. Switzerland
2. Cayman Islands
3. Bermuda

Stunningly, it appears that Romney will be taking an international trip to, well, visit his money rather than engage in diplomatic window-dressing before an admittedly strange trio of nations.

Romney's campaign, which has been publicly touting the GOP candidate's upcoming international excursion, has yet to comment on the leaked itinerary, neither debunking its veracity nor admitting to its accuracy.

It's possible that Romney, who appears to have changed the itinerary rather recently, became wistful of those places where he's stored millions of dollars after seeing them in an Obama campaign attack ad (called "Firms" -- seen below).

While this trip, if it indeed happens as planned, will be sure to cause major blowback against a campaign already reeling from being defined by a host of Bain ads.

Whether such a risk will stop Mitt from visiting his money remains to be seen.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
