Where have you traveled to?

visited 18 states (36%)

Kelsey over at Eat, Drink, and be a Tourist posted today of all the places she had been in the US. I had no idea a site could make a handy dandy map like this so I knew I had to do a post of my own. I love road trips. I think I get it from my Grandma and Grandpa. My Grandpa was a truck driver for years and years so if my Grandma wasn't hitting the road with him, they were taking their own little trips. I think the only state she never got to was maybe Hawaii. 

I've mainly traveled through the Midwest and Southern states. A lot of states I've been to were merely ones driven through like to Florida or to Michigan (pretty sure I puked in the backseat on that one - hey I was 6!).

One of my favorite trips which actually wasn't even a favorite at the time was when my aunt and I took a train from Oakland, California to Eugene, Oregon. I'd love to do that again because I was only 14 at the time, and well, I didn't really appreciate all the things I got to see back then. Of course the recent road trip (which at some point I'll finish doing my posts on that) with my sister to Tennessee was pretty freaking awesome! The best state I've been to? I love California, and have been blessed to have parents send me there 3 times during school to visit my aunt, but a few years back my sister's family, some friends, and I all drove to South Carolina to go on a cruise. I feel in love with Charleston, the place we had to port out of. Downtown Charleston was absolutely beautiful. Cobblestone walkways, big huge Victorian houses, and the walkway right next to the beach. Sadly, that's all I got to see before we had to board ship. I'm hoping next year I'll be going there again.

So what about you? Where have you traveled to?


  1. I love to travel! and always wanting to go to new places. My husband and I do one big trip a year and then 1 small one. :) We want to do Germany next year and maybe Vegas this winter. so excited!

  2. This is such a cute idea! I've got most of the west coast taken care of but I'm dying to travel more!

  3. Hey, that's pretty good! You should come explore the Northeast- we are nice! :)

    I'd love to do one of those big road trip across the country. And buy souvenirs in all those places in the middle that I haven't been yet! That would be such an adventure :)

  4. In the US, I've been to a good number of states, a good chunk of which come from traveling for my mock trial competitions in college. Outside of the country, not including Canada and Mexico, I've been to Turkey (to visit family).

    I just found your blog. Nice layout! :)

  5. My grandma just called to let me that she will be going on a world cruise this year. It's 3 months and she literally goes EVERYWHERE! She said she called to give me a heads up so I can keep an eye out for the house, but I'm pretty sure she called to make me jealous! But seriously, who wouldn't want to go on a cruise for 3 months for a little over $8,000 and that basically pays for everything?

    Btw, I love your blog (from your posts to your layout design!)... My blog is about Chick Lit book reviews and author interviews. I'm having a giveway next Thursday (28th), so come check it out!



Feel free to comment - they make me feel special. Plus I will think you are awesome if you do leave one. Seriously. You are awesome.
