Hello out there! I swear I am still alive and kicking! I have been so busy with a verity of different projects I have not had the organization to blog. This was brought to my attention by one of my diehard supporters and followers – my mom 🙂
I got a formal complaint that not everyone is on a social networking site. And you know what? She is right. My good friend Jenn LeBlanc and I were discussing this complaint yesterday. Though I have not been as up to speed on my blog, I have been trying to keep my Facebook Page fairly up to date. Facebook is like lazy blogging Jenn and I decided. And I promise to you that I will get you all caught up on my actual blog soon!
Now on to the post:
My best friend Amie has her own blog and she has created Three Things Thursday and I have decided to participate. (Actually, I decided I wanted to a while ago, but Thursday always ended to quickly!) SO basically, she comes up with a theme for the post and then I will answer the questions. I think it is a cool way for you to get to know me, or if you know me well, learn what you don’t know!
So here it is:
THREE THINGS THURSDAY
Three things about …. Where I’ve traveled.
1. First, I love to travel. It does not matter how far or how close to home. I love it. I am one of those people that does not get tired of traveling. Most people I know are ready to go home by the end of the trip. I tell ya, if it was not for those I love, I would probably still be traveling somewhere. Coming back home is a bit depressing for me. Just because I have to get back into my normal routine and I have to get back to life. Traveling is like becoming someone else completely. You stress and stress till the day you leave town and then you say, screw it. I can’t get anything else done, I’m outta here! Then you are free from your life for however long you are gone.

2. Local: I grew up in Colorado, and I have traveled much of the state it self, there are a lot of places to go just in Colorado! And each area holds a fond memory.
I have a small family, and we are the only ones that ventured to Colorado, so I’ve done a lot of traveling to see family in the States. My mom’s family lives down south, (Alabama and N.Carolina) – but I’ve been to all the southern states. That is my favorite area to visit. Just visit, I don’t know if I could live there. They have the most amazing food, the awesome “old south feeling,” and I love the humidity and what it does for plant-life down there. Moss growing on houses? WOW! I spent a lot of my summers in Alabama. My dad’s parents and my best friend from Elementary school lived in Chicago so I’ve been to Illinois plenty of times as well. That was the first time I took a flight alone was to see my friend. I have taken a ton of different transportation methods across the states. I’ve taken Amtrak, Greyhound, the trusty Subaru Loyal and Ford Ranger, as well as plenty of different air lines. I like all for different reasons. But I do love to fly the most. It is so exciting! I love going through all the different steps. I’ve been to most states, except Pacific North west and Alaska, and the north east coast. I have been to Hawaii, but what I remember most was that they had giant snails and I got to feed the big fish in the fish pond- (I was 5).

3. Not so Local: I have been to Mexico, South Africa and Lesotho. This list will grow. I love traveling international. I went to Mexico with Amie and her Husband (then boyfriend) and that was one of the best trips I’ve had. Amie has inspired me to travel to many places. Next up on my international list? Germany to see her! Mexico was a “spring break” trip – that did not involve a lot of typical spring break partying (we are not so into that). Instead we went to festivals the locals had, drove around the island of Cozumel (where we stayed) visited the ruins of Tulum and so much more. We were gone for 9 days.

I just recently returned from Pietermaritzburg SA. I went down there with my Uncle and BMX team USA for the BMX world cup. Check out my blog posts from Africa to see more of my trip!
Germany! Here I come! (and who knows, Team USA wants me to join them for next years championship in Holland. – oi, better start saving!
