“See the USA in your Chevrolet.” Remember that jingle, or are you too young?
No that’s not a Chevrolet we’re filling, but we were on a road trip and the gas station attendant was filling our tank. When was the last time you had that kind of service?
Tuesday is Travel day, and while there is a plan in the works for a regular post about traveling. For today you get pictures of some of my travels.
Most of the time my traveling is done locally. Although, not riding a bike for my traveling like my sister sometimes does.
A few years ago I dipped into the savings and took a quilting/Fall foliage tour in part of New England. While I thoroughly enjoy the trip, I did not have the time or opportunity to see several sights. Guess, I’ll be going back.
One of the hotels where we stayed, the Crowne Plaza. Not sure which state we were in, I need to be better about documenting my pictures. Very sure I won’t be staying there again, it’s a little out of my price range, but a wonderful experience.
I met some wonderful people, we danced, we ate, we celebrated birthdays. We had fun.
Didn’t even have to leave the country to meet some wonderful women from Brazil.
Another time I “traveled” all the way down to Texas, (seriously, it was less than a four-hour drive to my destination,) to meet an online friend, and author, Mariam Kobras.
Last year I “traveled” all the way to Stuart, a whole twenty miles. To participate in a 5K event (I walked it) with a friend. In the rain no less.
So far this year my travels have taken me back to Stuart for a birthday party (mine), to Colorado for a graduation, (my grandson’s) and through parts of south central Oklahoma as I drive to a Toastmaster meeting.
There is no telling where my travels will take me as the year continues. One thing, I will enjoy wherever I go and cherish my time with friends (old and new) and family.
Do you enjoy traveling?
Do you prefer to travel local or international?
