On traveling.

I really love to travel. A lot of people may not know that about me, because I rarely actually do it. I have dreams of seeing the whole world, and I hope I get to see at least part of it some day. It's just that traveling is expensive & right now, the priority is saving for a house & other things. 

ANYWAY. Yesterday's Fill-in-the-Blank Friday was on Travel. Is it too late to play?

1. My favorite place I've ever traveled to is Santa Monica, California. It's just beautiful there. We went on a missions trip with the Dream Center in Los Angeles, but a free day in Santa Monica was fantastic. Shopping & the beach right next to each other, along with perfect weather? LOVE. I also really enjoyed NYC & want to go back!

2. Europe is somewhere I'd love to go someday. Specifically, Italy. More specifically, Greece. But all over Europe, really. I've never been.

3. I pass the time on a plane (or bus or train or car ride) by reading novels or flipping through magazines.

4. My three must-haves when I travel are books, magazines, & my iphone.

5. My favorite travel companion is Brad, once we actually get there! He can be a bit of a pain during the preparing to go process! He worries about getting lost, he gets anxious about money & packing & directions, & he often doesn't want to go at all. Once there, though... he's the perfect travel buddy. :) 

6. The craziest thing that ever happened to me while traveling is getting stuck in the Detroit airport overnight. Ugh. What a long night! 

7. The most exotic food I've tried while traveling is alligator. I know that's sad, considering there are much more exotic foods to be had! And this is silly considering i've lived in Louisiana my entire life! But I didn't try alligator until i was on a missions trip in Panama. We were in the Darien Jungle & the natives took two of our team members & 2 of our leaders & they hunted an alligator during the night. He was for dinner the next day. And yes, he did taste like chicken. :)

8. If i could live anywhere else, I'd live in Charlotte NC, Savannah GA, or Natchitoches LA. 

Where was your most favorite roadtrip/vacation?
