What ideas do you have for either weeklong or day trips for me to take during the remaining months of 2007? There are lots of weeks in between to fill in with travel fun. I am open to all suggestions, either by automobile, train, bus or airplane. Anywhere, anytime! I am packed and ready-to-go. Traveling companions always welcome!

  1. What about the historic/fun/nostalgia, Philadelphia week. Liberty Bell, Valley Forge, Hershey, West Chester, and last but not least, Chow down on the Scott and Ban (our very own) Cheese Steak taste testing tour. Honestly, how can you say no to that? ;) Holly seemed to have fun here, but then again, she never came back…. we really really miss her….sniff, sniff.


  2. A Simply Excellent Idea! Once you are all settled into your new home, just let me know ‘what and when’ suits your schedule and I will book the ticket. I could even keep you company, cook and ‘child watch’ while you are painting and crashing and banging around your new house. I love that thought.


  3. I cant wait to be able to travel. I am so happy for you. I would love to see the world. I think Australia would be a fun place to go see. Mostly because I love the accent. I would also love to go to Italy, France, England, Jamaica, Hawaii, & New York. My list is a mile long. I would be happy if we made it to half of those places. I would love to go back and see Salt Spring in a few years and see how it changes.


  4. I think it is time for a return trip to Guam. ;)


  5. Actually Heidi, that’s interesting that you mention Guam. When Andy and I were in Las Vegas we met a guy who was visiting from Guam and we got talking. He said that the economy is dead and that tourism is way down and that without the military the place would be primitive. He told us that the prices were sky high, there were so many poor people and the whole island needed updated and repaired. I think we were all there during a prosperous time, but we would likely not recognize it the same way we remembered it if we went back.


  6. If you go to Philadelphia, don’t forget to invite me, too! Wouldn’t that be fun. I think my dad has been toying around with the idea of coming down this way for a visit (and also to see Alma’s grave). Don’t forget, there’s always tons of room at my house. All the Washington fun is only 30 minutes away! ;)

    I would suggest going to Astoria, Oregon, and Newport, Oregon. Both fun places to visit with neat historical things to see, and yummy seafood, if you like that sort of thing:)


  8. We were planning to go to California this summer to visit Rob and Amy and hopefully all head to Disneyland, but with Finley’s arrival we have postponed our travel plans for another year or two. I too would love to go back to Guam, but only if all of us went, it wouldn’t be as much fun without everyone else. We really were there at a good time, and I feel badly Guam is struggling, but I’m sure none of us are shocked to hear that. It always seemed as if those in charge were sinking the island/economy while taking all they could for themselves.
