places I’ve been…



There are people in this world, contemporaries, who have visited every continent and all the world’s countries (193/196?). I am not one of them  – nor do I have plans or the desire to join that elite group. I did, however, do a quick tally of my travels over the years and determined I have visited:

  •   27 states and live in Washington DC – technically not a state – which brings the total to 28. I have not been to Alaska but I have been to Hawaii;
  •  both Canada and Mexico;
  • several islands in the Caribbean , more than once;
  • 5 European countries: Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland; my favorite was Austria.

All in all, I’ve racked up a few miles over my lifetime. My memories of those visits is sketchy in some places and others, quite vivid. During the last nine years of my work life, (1998 –  2010), I worked with my two friends and blog soul mates: Kathy and Laura.  And though we live miles -hundreds – apart (Kathy lives in Delaware and Laura, Florida), we have continued our relationship, managing an annual meetup most years.

Wherever we plan to meet,  I hope to be there, as long as I have the wherewithall. Say, Alaska is on my bucket list…interested?

    First, the page is just beautiful. Your layering just gets better and better. (Problem for me.) Second, Alaska is absolutely on my bucket list…along with that 2-week tour of the Utah national parks starting in Vancouver…and, oh yeah, via the Orient Express! Cool post. Now, I need to think.

  2. Gorgeous layout! Ditto what K posted!

    Alaska? Right after Washington state & Vancouver!
