I'm Back!!!!!

It's Good to Travel, But It's Good to Be Home Too!!!

I am finally home after spending three weeks in the United States on holidays.  We had a great time travelling around various states and visiting such places as the Kennedy Space Centre (my son and daughter now have ambitions to become astronauts), Walt Disney World, Gettysburg, Myrtle Beach (I have ambitions to do nothing but relax), Charleston, Washington DC, Savannah and other places.  I absolutely love to travel and can never get enough.  One of our goals as a family is to visit every state in the United States and every province in Canada.  We have this big map posted in our house where we colour the places we have visited and put tacks in the cities in which we have stayed; it's so motivational to see the places I read about all the time.  I can now envision how the Pentagon really looks as well as the J. Edgar Hoover Building, places I read about so often in thriller novels.  I was so excited I almost stopped paying attention to the road, not a good idea when driving in downtown Washington (and anyone who has been there will understand exactly what I am talking about).

I will post more about my holidays and the many reviews I have in the next few days.  As always, after being away, I am glad to be home!


  1. What an exciting adventure! We did WA DC a couple of years ago. Two days wasn't nearly enough time to do everything. I want to go back again!

  2. I would love to go back to WA DC myself. We only spent two days there as well and didn't get to see nearly as many things as I wanted to see. I've also been to Charleston twice now and still have barely seen all that I've wanted. I think that's why we keep returning to the Charleston/Myrtle Beach area year after year. And I live in Canada, so it's a fairly long drive.
