Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our thirty-third 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.)
In our travels across America alphabetically, we are at the end of the "I" states...Iowa to be exact. Let me see what I can find.
Opera in Cedar Rapids, Iowa?? You bet!!
Granted, this was back in January, over a year ago, but it's fun to show how the arts can be found in this state where there is a lot of corn and open spaces! I enjoyed Karen Feltman's posts, as I haven't really read much of her work before now. I will now and I'm going to hit the "follow" button as a result!
Here we are at Davenport, Iowa at a humongous skate park! The people don't even look real....and even though this was in March of '08, the post-snow post is fitting! Lucky Lang (yeah, that's his name, really! I don't make this stuff up), shows us a couple of things you can do in Davenport, and check out the Mississippi if skating isn't in your "wheel"house!
With all of the talk about SO MUCH SNOW, isn't it kinda fun to think about July and summer events in the heat of summer?? How about a 4th of July parade in Coralville, Iowa? Thank you, Denise Hamlin, for showing us something besides snowbanks!!
Doesn't having coffee at a place called PerkUp Cafe make you want to check it out, just cuz the name is happy and SAYS what they are??
A new place in Urbandale, Iowa, along with new blogger, Wanda Greif has me all perked up to read more! Join me in welcoming Wanda...go check her out and be sure and comment to welcome her aboard!
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:
