Tuesday Travelogue-December 2nd

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

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


(Be sure and click on the links in blue.)


We are taking a brief departure from our travels across America alphabetically, because I just HAD TO SHARE this amazing Amazon trip that Dick Greenburg and his wife Mary took!!!!! (I wanna go! I wanna go!)

Owl Monkeys

The photos, the experiences....absolutely mind-bogglingly wonderful! You can keep the tarantula though, Dick.

Bird-Eating Tarantula

NOT FOR ME, thanks anyway! This is just a tease, please enjoy the array of photos and fabulous commentary by our traveling host, Dick (The Man)Greenburg. 

Since I'm feeling worldly, I thought we'd have Sheila Anderson take us to South Africa next!

All of these cool places that our fellow and female ActiveRain travelers have visited--I'm so jealous happy for them! 

Now it's off to Burma with Vegas Bob! A long way from Nevada, VB, but worth the trip.


Let's end our travels today with a sunset in Aruba....thank you,Ed Silva for taking us to the sun in December (on your anniversary, too)!

Vacation in Aruba

Please don't forget to comment on these blogposts and I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels. Feel free to join our group:

Gayle, wonderful posts this week.  I love Dick Greenburg's photos of the tarantula and those wonderful monkeys - that tarantula looks very hairy! Love your commentary as well!

I've been to Aruba!!!  LOL. The other spots are a bit more exotic than I'm used to!

Interesting coincidence though....my daughter just got home yesterday from a 10 day hiking trip to Peru. Prior to that trip she spent a couple months visiting a friend in S. Africa.  She was only home 2 days in between the two trips.

Gayle, I saw the pictures on Dicks blog. That spider is sort of scary. I'd check it out.

Good evening Gayle. Will photos of my trip to the lumber yard suffice? I really have not been to very interesting places here lately.

Gayle, The most I can contribute is my 500 mile trip from San Jose to San Diego (LOL)!  What great fun sharing the amazing trips Rainers take.

Hello, world travelers and world traveler wanna-bes! I'm off to deliver new fliers for a brand new listing (gotta get that up on AR soon!) and then the 2nd walk of the day with the dogs in the balmy 32ish degree temps before the sun goes down.

I'll leave you right now with this photo I took of my new listing last night as the moon was coming out...can you see it? (I had a wide angle lens, so at least you know it's in the sky somewhere....)

Winter frost on a Fishhawk Lake eve!

We have not travelled out of the good old USA but we have seen most of that! I think there are only 4-6 states we have not been to.

I too want to go to the Amazon some day - the trip looks incredible. Not too dangerous - but enough for a bit of a thrill. Although watching a sunset from a beach in Aruba sounds mighty nice about now... ;)

I'm so happy that you are enjoying traveling with me and my "guests". It's like reading a great book, it takes you somewhere else and you don't have to leave your comfy seat!
