Photo Challenge – Day 26: Transportation

 

"Row...row...row away."

“Row…row…row away.”

A canoe is a very pleasant mode of transportation. This was the first time I have ever been canoeing in my life. I had a blast! If you have never been, I suggest you put it on your bucket list and try it!

10 Places To Go

I dream of traveling the world!   I can’t seem to get it off of my mind!   The world feels so huge and I feel like I’m stuck in a little corner of it, waiting for my turn to explore.   I would like to go so many places and see all the special spots each place has to show me.   I have come up with hundreds of different places to visit and have painstakingly narrowed them down to a list of my top ten.

1. Giant’s Causeway, Antrim, Northern Ireland.

2. Venice, Italy.

3. Cairo, Egypt.

4. Zakynthos Island, Greece.

5. Transylvania, Romania.

6. Paris, France.

7. London, England.

8. Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon, Iceland.

9. Neustadt, Germany.

10. Isle Of Skye, Scotland.

 

(I hope I spelt all of these correctly!)

My Favorite Vacation

One of my biggest dreams in life, is to travel around the world.   I haven’t gotten far yet, but then again, I’m only just eighteen.

My Mom and Dad have still traveled around the states with my siblings and myself.   We have even made it to the Bahamas!   Out of the places I have traveled with my family, and the vacations I’ve had with them, I do have a favorite.   It was hard to pick out, but I have found it.

My favorite vacation was when my Mom and Dad took us to California.   We drove there from our house, stopping along the way to visit my Aunt and Uncle.   I had so much fun in that sunny state.   Anywhere near the Ocean will usually count as a favorite place for me!   On that vacation, we visited so many places and saw so many things!  We even went whale watching for the first time in my life.   We hiked, ran along the beach, sun bathed, swam, and visited museums and refuge zoos close to our resort.   My family and I were even able to ride horses along the shore, one of the biggest highlights of the trip for many of us.   The weather was beautiful the entire time, and the beaches were plentiful, not to mention abundant with sand dollars and shells that I brought home by the pound.   Our location was surprisingly quiet and pleasant.   It was a very fun experience, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

5 Items to Buy!

Lets say I just won, came into, or inherited one-million dollars.   Using the one-million dollars I now hold in my hands, I am allowed to buy five things with this money.

If this amazing event ever took place in my life, these are the five things I would buy:

1. A house with land near the ocean in a small, unknown Oregon town (maybe Tillamook), and bring all my pets and horses with me.

I know these are petty things, but if I had any money left over I would put it to better use!
