Travelling #OpenBook Blog Hop

I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
Crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breatherd the mountain air, man
Travel, I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere

In a previous life, I used to travel for work. I'd hope on a plane at 6 in the morning, head to somewhere in the United States,  spend one or two night and fly home. In between I'd spend my time shuffling computers and wires and switches and routers. So although I got to be lots of places, I didn't get to see those towns. In fact, I doubt I could list all the places I've been. I don't remember all of them. I don't have pictures to remind me of them.

So, in no particular orders, here's a list of places I'd like to go back to and spend time exploring.

Sacramento, Ca. I actually made two trips there. Never left the town. I'd love to go back and visit wine country. Not that I'm a big wine drinker, but it looks beautiful. at least it did before the fires.

Connecticut—after all, it's a small state compared to where I live now! And no one city in particular, but I'm a bit of a history buff, and so much history was made there. Sure, Massachusetts is more famous, but that's what makes Connecticut more attractive to me. I got to go two different cities in Connecticut, and I'd love to explore more of the state.

Seattle, WA. I'm not a big city girl. But there was something about the quirkiness of Seattle that fascinated me. But that was over a decade ago, and who knows what I might find now.

Tennessee. I've been in the state for both business and pleasure. But there's lots of it I never got to. (mostly the western part.)  I'd like to see more of it. Maybe drive through it going east to west instead of north to south.

One last one. I spent a lot of time in airplanes flying from the East Coast to the West Coast. And although none of my trips ever took me close, I flew over the Grand Canyon several times. Flying over it doesn't count, however. I'd like to see it all, from the rim to the village at the bottom.

Now let's go find out where the other authors are headed!
