Tuesday Travelogue August 26th (oops almost the 27th--a day late!)

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our tenth 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!

This week I perused some of the resources for Local Info and found some hidden treasures. I decided to check out places like Iowa and Utah, just cuz....but first, Victoria and the outer fringes of retirement!

Sometimes a trip is equally as important for WHO you go with as much as what you do and see! This very special once-in-a-lifetime shot was captured and Norma Toering shares her momentous experience with us! Victoria Falls!

Victoria Falls Wet Faces

Okay, so this guy, "spoke to me" with his Blogpost title: Life is Free! Cheaper with Age Anyway!  I HAD to go check it out. Randy Landis is an overseas retirement consultant, doesn't that sound cool?? He talks about the desire for LESS money, rather than more. Read it--I like this guy's thinking, he knows the Secret!

When was the last time you sold GOATS as an amenity for property?? Well, Larry Sullivan does it quite nicely...."Innovative business in billy goat country"--he's got the Goat Goods! (This one is old, but still around thanks to localism posts...who cares, it's still showcasing "out of the box" thinking when it comes to real estate). 

High Uinta Pack goats

To end on a chilly note...the most common universal theme that we have across cultures is the WEATHER. It is always a top topic of conversation. The recent earthquake in the Napa Valley, the fires in Oregon, the flashfloods, the ridiculously high temps we've experienced across the nation, the what-have-you.  In the heat of the moment, Ginny Gorman has shown us an immediate way to appreciate what we have NOW, because here's what could be coming! Prepare yourselves, Rhode Islanders....

Gayle, now that's what I call air conditioning!  We've had magical weather around here lately.

Thanks Gayle... These are great finds and I would have missed them if you hadn't pointed them out! I really enjoyed all 3 and discovered once again some new talent here in the Rain. Thanks!

What a cool idea.  I love Norma Toering's photos - I've been to Victoria Falls too and based on her pinterest boards, we've traveled to a lot of the same places.

I'm going to try to schedule some travel time. Always appreciate a virtual trip - the packing is so much easier. ha.

Going traveling for real this afternoon to show a few houses in Camas. The out-of-town buyer again. Hoping we find her something...

Gayle, 10 weeks and still going strong! Love it. I've actually heard of people swapping their lawn mowers for goats. They may be the next most coveted home feature!

Video show and tell transports the best. Not static image but motion, sound, action. That is what transports, connects best.
