A BIT OF ME (ME) — TRAVELING — FEB. 12

Today’s A Bit of Me (Me) adventures, hosted by There’s A Book, take us to the places in the world we’ve visited and loved.

Here’s this week’s question:

What is the single best trip you’ve ever taken?

I have only been out of the country to two destinations—Mexico and Canada.  I was a kid when we went to Mexico, so I scarcely remember it.  I loved Canada…but there have been other trips I recall and loved more.

Something very close to Canada is a place I’ve loved for years.  Seattle!  My first visit there was in the seventies, and I remember looking out at Puget Sound and watching the fireworks on Fourth of July.

Later, I went a few more times, but the most recent trip was to a nearby island, reached by ferry.  I attended a wedding there, and we had a weekend of beautiful sights of  Friday Harbor, on San Juan Island.

FRIDAY HARBOR -- SAN JUAN ISLAND

I can’t leave the topic of beautiful destinations without mentioning one I’ve often remembered nostalgically...a trip to Boston in the autumn, back in the early eighties.  I went on a business trip, but as luck would have it, I had to stay the entire weekend.  That left time for sight-seeing.

Boston Public Gardens
Cobbled Streets
Ah, the Boats!

I had some of my own photos of these events, but I would have had to scan them…and crop out the people for their anonymity!  LOL

 

So these are some of the best, but I’ve also loved road trips, and traveled through several states as a kid.

Then there are my Arizona trips, which give us this:

THE GRAND CANYON

Okay, I’m done!  As you can see, I had trouble stopping with just one….

 

What delightful tidbits and images would you love to share today?  I’m eagerly anticipating your visits….

  1. Isn’t it incredible that there are so many beautiful locations here in the US and neighboring countries? I think we get consumed with the idea of going “somewhere else” that we can forget the beauty here. I especially love the pictures in Boston and the Grand Canyon, so gorgeous! Love it! Thank you so much for sharing!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Danielle…I remind myself of this whenever I think about not having gone to Europe yet. I still have a lot of places here to enjoy…like New York and Washington, D.C.

      I would also love to visit the Southern states, like South Carolina. Or Louisiana (New Orleans).

      Until I visit them, though, I get to enjoy them in books and movies!

    1. Boston in the autumn is fabulous! It was just one of those happy accidents that I went in the fall, but later, others told me that’s the best time of year there. The colors are unbelievable!

      Thanks for stopping by, Crystal…hope you enjoy your trip.
