My photos for the weekly photo challenge are all about road tripping. I was chatting with someone recently about their upcoming “drive” to Colorado – and we were talking about how road trips can great. There are times when they can feel painfully long, but for the most part, what a great way to get to see “America, the Beautiful….”
I have not taken a road trip since last summer and so my “I’d rather be….” is finished with “road tripping” -to see scenes like this:
Sometimes there are clogs – like waiting to cross the border:
Sometimes there is bad weather:
And sometimes we see people who are really “road tripping” – like those with the CannaBus:
As I peek around at some of the posts this week, it seems as if a few bloggers have similar on-the-road themes.
So I am going to come back here and link a few posts that seem to fit the vibe here.
- Starting with Su’s “I’d rather be…. on the road” with a cool shot of the road to the Whakapapa village here.
- This next one is not a road trip post – but Georgie Moon invited us to tour the Isle of Wight here (IOW), which “is the only place in the U.K. that has a passenger hovercraft in operation.”
- Cannot have this linking post about road trips without mentioning Tom and Audrey’s blog log about some of their journey through the United States: USA Through Our Eyes HERE
- Paying for Eyebrowz shared a gorgeous photo of the Mississippi this week. Her post gives us some of the multi-faceted essence of road trips: challenges with navigating, beautiful scenes, socializing, and that coming home feeling of reprieve: “After two full days on the road, navigating crazy interstate traffic I am safely home, and can honestly say, “There’s no place like…Doright Manor!” her post is here.
- Ana L. had a travel theme with tasty layers. From escapism to reminding us how we have more access to travel now than ever before: She shared, “Traveling wasn’t as accessible back then as it is nowadays, so that collection of postcards representing places she had seen was quite an achievement.” and then got into this juicy part, “But I also traveled because for a number of years I felt I had to be anywhere but home in order to be alive.” and….. “I can accept the fact that early summer, and sometimes early spring as well, make me giddy with that familiar desire… I want to get in my car or on a plane and keep going, not looking back. I love that impulse, it generally makes me feel alive, if it stems mainly in the need to travel, not to run away.” Enjoy the full post here
Hope you have an enjoyable rest of your day.
