Tuesday Travelogue-December 23rd

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our twentyfifth 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 green.)

I will depart from the alphabetical travels across America (still on C!), and show some Christmasy-type destinations just to keep in the spirit of the holiday season.

Cindy Paxson sounds like she's been having the time of her life photographing the on-going Christmas Boat parades! It's in Newport Beach, California and what a departure from the usual snowy background for Santa!

Evanston Illinois and a visit to Geneva for some holiday shopping, via Noah Seidenberg and his lovely wife (who posed)! A town still the same even after 100 years. As he said, "everything is vintage in Geneva" (except his bride! I added that part). 

 Geneva 3

I was totally enticed by these "horsey faces" and it made me feel like I stepped into history OR a Budweiser Christmas commercial! Georgetown, Colorado....sounds delightful, Joan Cox!

Georgetown, Colorado

I decided to visit Germany at Christmas through Florida! Barbara-Jo Roberts Berberi used to live there. 











Do you want to shop internationally in one place? How 'bout DC?

Christmas market Christmas

Although this international Christmas Market post was written back in November by Lisa Howe, I'll betcha they do it every year! (And maybe it's still going on...it IS a big city, after all). From Vienna, Iceland, Finland to the Ukraine and more....there's something for everyone! 

Or just keep it simple at Christmas....I like your take on this, Tom White from Franklin, Tennesee. 


Happy Holidays from your friend at Fishhawk Lake!

Be safe and spread the love this season!

Gayle, how kind of you to mention my "simple" post, or is it simpleton? Ho, ho, ho! Anyway, thank you and I love this series. Tammie and I used to live quite near Geneva, IL, in fact, we were married in a quaint Bed and Breakfast in that beautiful community twenty-four years ago!
