Thursday 13

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Places I have travelled and want to travel to!!

I am splitting this one because I have not travelled very much!!(yet))

Places I have been:

1. Mexico - I went here with my grandparents when I was 12. They were missionaries and would take their grandchildren down there when we were a certain age. I loved it!!!

2. Texas - I stayed at a trailer park on the same trip with my grandparents. It was a seniors complex and I learned to play shuffleboard!!

3. Florida - On the same trip as above, I remember going to Disney World and waiting in line for Magic Mountain, I think? And when we got inside the mountain (the line was soooo.....long) I kinda freaked out and didn't want to go anymore. My grandma was so upset, she wanted to go on it so badly!!

4. Went across Canada with my family once when I was younger and then as a teenager again. This is the trip that I met my husband on!!

5. Barbados - My aunt and uncle used to live there. I went when I was 14 and I had a ball. I remember the monkeys running and playing in the backyard and getting my hair braided on the beach

6. We have travelled to many of the States to visit relatives and see the sites. One that remember, and probably always will , was the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, in Virginia. That was, by far, the craziest thing I had ever seen.

Places I would love to go:

7. Botswana - I did some research on the computer for a Sunday School class at our church. I fell in love with Botswana.

8. Australia - I have always wanted to go here. I can remember as a child wanting to go to Australia.

9. England - I have relatives here whom I have never met before. I would love to do this trip someday!!

10. A Holy Land tour - Something like the link...I heard about a homeschool group doing a trip and it really intrigued me. Maybe one day...

11. Hawaii - I had done some looking on the internet too. It looks like such a nice and interesting place to go.

12. The Canadian Territories (Northwest Territories, Yukon, Nunavut) I love the idea of this totally different culture in Canada. I am so intrigued by these areas.

13. Ireland - I did a report in school one year and made an itinerary for a trip. I would love to do the trip. There were so many things to do. (I still have the report from school...can you say PACKRAT!!!!)

  1. Sounds like you had an awesome time in Barbados; traveling is so much fun when during the teenage years when you don't have to worry about so much!

  4. Great travels!

    I think it's important to see different places in the world - taste new foods, experience new cultures... it makes us better people with a greater compassion for others.
