I love to travel, since I was little I've always been called by the excitement of faraway places. My Dad traveled for work and I was always fascinated and excited by his stories, an armchair adventurer, I seldom had the opportunity to travel. When I met Mark I was fortunate to meet my travel match, both of us will get on a plane or a train or in the car at the drop of a hat.

But given my current life I sometimes need to curb my appetite for the next adventure. At the risk of filling every single moment with travel, I occassionally need to remember to stay home. And such is the case this September. I'm traveling each weekend between Oct 1st and Nov 20th, but still when contemplating a September trip to Bead Creative in New Hampshire I was so tempted. Cathi has opened a huge new store with a fabulous classroom. Her enthusisasm for the beads is infectious and New England in the fall, well a favorite destination. Mark's good sense prevailed however, and I'll wait until next Spring to see her store.

So in the meantime I am contenting myself with the memories of trips past. I have been fortunate enough to have done a lot of travel. Enough that I think a travelogue will become a weekly feature of the blog.

Here is a picture of one of the hauntingly beautiful trees in Savannah Georgia.

I do have a bit of travel planned, Beadfest in Pennsylvania in August, another Santa Cruz wedding and perhaps a trip to beautiful Sedona Arizona in September.....

I know what you mean about being lucky enough to be married to someone who loves to travel...Thomas and I enjoy our trips together, which is why we try to get out and see as much as we can with our vacation time. I love your travel pictures...I finally got Thomas to fork over the Alaska pictures and got them posted in Facebook...

I am going to be in Philly for Bead Fest - hopefully, I will get to say hi :o)

Thanks for sharing! I love to travel but haven't done much in the last 10 years. I'll be seeing more of Texas this fall, at least. You take beautiful photos. I look forward to seeing more.
