Trip Begins with T Which Starts Tomorrow Morning

I'm leaving for a grand trip tomorrow morning (so early in the morning!).  My husband and I are going with his Mother, brothers and their wives on a Caribbean cruise, and I'm excited (well, down deep I am; I'm just feeling tired at this moment because I've been going all day getting packed and cleaning).  

I love taking trips- any kind of trip is fine with me!  I especially love road trips!  Nothing like driving down the highway at a nice pace (at least 5 mph over the speed limit) with either the radio at a  high volume or talk radio on.  I love it!

There's something about getting away, leaving my life behind and doing something new.  I have found myself traveling quite a bit since all of my children grew up, moved away, and got married.  Most of the trips I take are to visit them and my parents and sisters who live in Texas and Arizona, but I've also gone a few other places as well.  It's been great!

Last year I made a Vision Board which sits in my office behind me on a table; one of the phrases I cut out of a magazine and thumb tacked on the bulletin board reads, "Adventures Big and Small".  Funny how since I have pinned that up where I can see it daily, we've gone on two fun, family trips with my husband's family. 

I'm looking forward to this get-away and still have some things to do to get ready.  (I'm going to try and write a few more letter blog posts tonight; whatever I can't finish I'll blog about by the end of May (I hope!).  It's going to be a busy few weeks, and I'm looking forward to it.

What fun trips have you been on and where is your favorite place to go?

  1. Nice post! I’ve just got back from a week away in Uley, in the Cotswolds, England. It was lovely… although a wi-fi black spot for me, so I had to ignore the virtual world for a week nut it did me good. Stayed in a Gothic mansion – fabulous place & I’ll put a post up about it just as soon as this a to z challenge is over
