Tuesday Travelogue-October 10th

By
Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our 138th 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!

Therapy, anyone? If it requires a beach, or a gallery with a girlfriend or or or...it's often what we need to escape, even for just a virtual moment!

 

Belinda Spillman pulls at my memories when she takes us to one of my favorite places on earth, Hawaii. This time it's Kawaii.

 

Let's go to Lugano for a completely different viewpoint. Kim and Kristine Halverson talk about going off the beaten track and explore things the unknown. 

Lugano, Switzerland

 

 

Bob Crane inspired me to start a new group, Travellers in the Rain because of this photograph. I'd totally forgotten! Wisconsin Lakes welcome you.

The world is a beautiful place to escape to when disaster strikes. Dorie Dillard speaks to this when she was on vacation in Italy from the then then devastated areas of Texas. As a result, she says, "I will never take things for granted again". A good lesson for all of us! 

Please don't forget to comment on these blog posts and I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels. 

 

Travellers in the Rain!

I want to visit Hawaii.  My sister in law and her family live there, but we haven't made the trip yet.

Hi Gayle - Very nice picks for today's post. I'm starting to get the itch again - it has been too long since we last hit the road.

Roy Kelley it's my pleasure...

Beth Atalay I have wanted to extend the travelogue out to other countries but am finding it more difficult to locate those AR members that do it and then share. 

Dick Greenberg thanks to you, the Gallapagos Islands are one of my future targets. God only knows when, tho! I'm hoping to get my sister to travel with me to Europe next year. Wooing her by telling her for her 60th birthday that I'll help pay her way. Here's hopin'....

Sharon Lee Hawaii is NOT TO BE MISSED!!! I am sadly disappointed that it's been so long since we were there. And I stumbled upon Kim and Kristine's post...a delightful find!

Kathy Streib sometimes having no general theme gives me free reign to just go with the flow. This week that's what happened. Glad you appreciate it.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  you nailed it quickly when Dorie Dillard asked "Where is this?" I, of course, was clueless because I haven't been there YET. Trying to woo my sister into going just the two of us next year. Gotta DO it!!!

Gayle, your wonderful travelogue is especially welcome today, as a stress and worry about clients and friends in Sonoma and Napa counties who have had to evacuate from the wildfires that are raging and don't know whether or not they will have a home to return to.

PS: Kauai is one of my favorite spots too!

Lottie Kendall one of my dear friends and a vacation home owner at Fishhawk Lake and I spoke in the middle of this terrible event, which she saw very closely out her door of the school where she is an educator. She has a humane society in that county and was able to acscertain that all of the animals were safe. This is a life-changing event that I would NEVER want humans or wildlife to go through.

Endre Barath, Jr. I will be here when you come to your traveling senses! 

Bob Crane You often offer localism posts that I yearn to go visit. Thank you for you! 

Sheila Anderson what's so wonderful is that I know you will do that. Thank you! And thanks for all of the glorious trips that you've taken US on as well. 

Liz and Bill Spear vicarious, virtual, whatever works for you to float your boat, I'm all in support of that, Bill!
