To Trip The Light Fantastic. . .

 

To Trip The Light Fantastic. . .  As I go through the roll of the new posts each day when I visit ActiveRain, journeys of all kinds are a part of the expected(and unexpected) itinerary.  The "trips" one can experience are indeed fantastic. 

 

Recently, Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089  wrote of one such experience while she had some visitors come to Maui where she enjoyed a stay-cation of sorts as she was able to appreciate everyday life in her own of piece of paradise.  You can read about that experience in her post here.  

 

Further enjoying one's  home life when you take yourself on that exploration of your own area can be enlightening as well as entertaining and educational.  

 

Expose yourself to those things you might "show off" to a guest or anyone unfamiliar with the place.  Real estate definitely offers many such opportunities...  Why not do it everyday?  You can become interested all over again.  Although I have previously written a Boast-A-Post for the challenge this month by Richie Alan Naggar I mentioned in that post that finding many moments of interest when one surfs the pages of ActiveRain can lead to many such possibilties.  .

I tried to learn ballroom dancing and what was fantastic is how many times I tripped.

Great idea to be a tourist in your own area.  It's funny that many people don't really do it unless they have visitors.

Joe Pryor - I can't recall seriously attempting ballroom dancing but clumsiness and I are close friends.

Sharon Tara - it is interesting how many things have been experienced by long time residents when they have visitors in their own hometown.

Lottie Kendall - you are in a very tourist-friendly city for residents and visitors alike and you do a stellar job at exploring/explaining. 

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 - it is rather interesting to see/learn.

Hi Michael- I love playing tour guide to visitors. There have been times when I moved to a new area that my visitors and I were novices to the area and had fun getting lost and exploring together.

Kathy Streib - I do imagine you might have a tour guide outfit in your closet if it wasn't discarded/re-purposed/donated during your most recent move.

I think if we especially explore local options, we can not only have fun, we can show ourselves to be area experts when we blog about it!

Morning Michael.

We have been to every state in the Continental States except for Wisconsin. Pity, it's only an 8 hour drive. I enjoy going, looking at all the wonderful sights along the way

Aloha, Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - I hope you are enjoying another day in paradise.

James Dray - visiting 47 states is a terrific accomplishment, I am far behind in you in experiencing so much of our country.  There's still much to discover in California for me.  In fact, each day brings something new right in my neighborhood/area.

I too really enjoyed Georgie's post, as you'll see in my YouTube Thursdays post tomorrrow.  Each day is surprise in AR, you never know where we'll be transported via a video, photo, or words.  Amazingly beautiful photo. D

Michael Jacobs - I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and how you give credit to others on AR who inspire you, such as Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089. Clearly, this is not just a Social Media Platform, it's a place to learn from others and imagine the world and what it looks like to other visitors to places near and dear to your own backyard. By the way, I could get lost in that photograph!
