Over the years I’ve traveled around the country quite a bit. As a kid our family moved from Colorado to California and back to Colorado and later from Colorado to Virginia and back again traveling by car every time. We took a lot of road trips so I learned early to appreciate seeing the sites along the way. As an adult I’ve continued the road trip adventures. before I had kids I would hop in the car and just drive until I got tired… stop and rest and drive back. I love the feeling of exploring when we’re traveling to new places, I always try to jam pack as much into the trip as possible yet leave a little room for those spontaneous “gotta stop and look” moments.

My favorite thing about traveling is experience of being someplace new. There is no one specific thing, some places I love the food, some I love the people. Sometimes I’m just driving through but the drive itself is fantastic. Some of the best memories of traveling are little moments scattered from place to place, not anything grand of photo worthy.. just a great moment in some place new.
Some of my favorite locations:
- Colorado – even living here there are places I only get to visit
- Stowe, Vermont
- Pismo Beach, California
- The Red Wood trees along the West coast, California/Oregon
- Swan Valley and the Titans, Idaho
- The Carolina Coast
- Tennessee in the spring – the air is amazingly sweet!
I haven’t had the opportunity to travel to any other countries as an adult, I think that is what I have to look forward to in retirement.
