Tuesday Travelogue-August 19 2014

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our ninth week! Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:


" to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

and hopefully much more!

Bob Swetz, "Vegas Bob" happens to be one of THE best photographers on ActiveRain and his Alaska trip through his lens is not to be missed! (I've had several Tuesday Traveloggers visiting there this year!)

You're so VANE.....Donald Hester keeps us updated on his trips through Scandinavian countries and shows us local artwork up in the sky!

Peg Barcelo, one of my favorite crazy artistic-types in ActiveRain moved to South  Okanagan, BC within the last two years or so. She shares why she loves this lovely BC community! (I always like to learn about our neighbors up north!)

Mryl Jeffcoat always delivers a great story and this time travel piece takes you back to a time in pre-EuroAmerican California. She is a marvelous storyteller (and terrific photographer to boot)!

Please be sure and take the time to comment on these blogposts!


 I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels. Please feel free to join our group

Gayle, thank you so much once again for this Tuesday Travelogue.  I absolutely love the Bob Swetz photo of that Alaskan sky and this is getting motivated to travel there.  I am going to be in Arkansas on September 2-5 and will be sure to take some photos of our beautiful south.

Hi Gayle - I had somehow missed this cool series before. Great idea, and I'll be checking these out. (And Mary & I are heading up the Amazon in November and will be posting about it once we get back to wi-fi country).

Joanna, ironically, I randomly chose Arkansas as a place to check out to see if there were any interesting posts on travel...alas there weren't any. I hope that you will change that!

Roger, this is why I'm here! To be a vessel for showing you the way to other lands and other times...

Dick, I hope that you've joined the Travelers in the Rain Group so that your travels can be found there! Thank you for finding my weekly travelogue...it's so much fun exploring the universe! 

Carla, nice to see you and thanks for the compliment!

Donna, happy to oblige...enjoy your trip.

This is the first I have come to your Travelogue Series. I find it enjoyable to see where other AR members have traveled or are traveling and appreciating through their photos. Very interesting, Gayle. I see there is a Travelers in the Rain Group?

Morning I believe if I left today and went traveling I would not be able to see all the wonderful sights I would like to before I'm just a memory.  Pity

Jane, you are now officially invited! I sent you a link. 

Joe, it's fun to share AR bloggers' posts, and where they're all going that we haven't been to yet. YET is my watchword. 

Marco, welcome, glad you found it!

James, preachin' to the choir, my friend.

Sorry I missed this one last week Gayle.

I did see the series that Donald posted a while back including the weather vanes, it was a great series, my favorite was the one about he land with the funny name and the driftwood art.

Myrls picture reminds me of some of the Navajo structures in NM and AZ.

So many gems in the rain, thanks for taking us along on the trip!
