12 OUTDOOR ADVENTURES TO TAKE THIS YEAR
A cheat sheet to make your 2018 extraordinary.
Jen Anderson, Author
The new year is full of hope, promise and endless beauty in all seven regions of Oregon. Will you summit a new peak? Try fat biking or float the river for the first time? Take the family on a scenic snowshoe trip or moonlight paddle?
It snowed in Logansport LA – 50 miles south of Shreveport… Kendray Owens up real early and playing in the fresh snow… NO SCHOOL TODAY!
I am excited to let you all know that in a couple of weeks we are going live on You Tube! Our channel will feature live stream videos and all our advertisers will get a plug in on our destination videos. As soon as the information is available to us we will share it here on The Family Traveler…
I love to travel with my family and this summer, my plans are to go to new and exciting destinations… no, not leaving the country any time soon Guys! But my concentration right now is on the West Coast – Washington, Oregon and California. I’m not excluding the Gulf Coastal states or the Eastern Coastal United States either. This year, I will be concentrating heavily on the West Coast for the summer months with the Eastern half for early Spring and the Fall months.
Having said that I do want to plug in a few websites that are new. I’d like for everyone to take a peak and let us know what you think. They are new and lacking in content right now but as the weeks pass, my plans are to change all that. I’ve started my contact database for the west coast area. Before long these sites will be saturated with delicious stories and pictures from all three states and beyond! Here are the blog sites: Oregon Family Travel Host (New), https://oregonfamiltravelhost.wordpress.com; West Coast Family Traveler (New), https://westcoastfamilytraveler.wordpress.com; California Family Travel Host, http://californiafamilytravelhost.wordpress.com; and Washington Family Travel Host (New), washigntonfamilytravelhost.wordpress.com.
Come on everybody – lets plan some road trips! We’d lobe to hear about yours. Email pictures and stories to The Family Traveler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where Kids Really Want To Go On Vacation
by Marcella Simmons
It is interesting to hear kids talk about vacation time and the places they want to go, and why. What is more fun is taking the information they give you and building a road trip around it, if you can. Open your ears and really listen while they are talking about destinations. They will sometimes reveal a certain place or thing they want to see or do.
This week, I interviewed my three young grandsons, Kendray, age six, Tristin, age ten and Nicolas age thirteen about where they really wanted to go on vacation this year. The three boys are frequent travelers and have traveled to several states, camped and hiked in the highest mountains of Colorado, rafted some of the roughest rapids for amateur rafters, and enjoyed being on long road trips with grandparents for not two, not three, but four weeks at a time!
The answers varied because of the age difference but if you’ll take two minutes to read on, I will reveal to you some of the places they want to go to this year, and why.
The youngest of the three, Kendray answered in a shy little voice, “I want to go to New York this year. They have the tallest buildings in the world and I want to go up an elevator to the tip top.”
Now you have it, Folks! New York; a six-year-old child’s dream vacation for it’s tall buildings. I would have expected something like Florida so he could go to Disney World, but instead he chose New York.
In a separate interview, Tristin said he wants to go on a cruise to Mexico. “I just want to play in the water park on a cruise,” Tristin commented. “That would be so cool!”
Nicolas, on the other hand, wants to fly to Beijing, China. “I read in a book about Beijing and how beautiful it is and just want to go there on vacation one year.”
Kids have different ideals and notions about why they want to vacation at certain places. I am not sure when we’ll get to New York or take the cruise to Mexico or fly to China but hopefully someday these boys will get the vacation of their dreams. But sometimes just knowing what kids wants and why is a good reason to plan a trip according to their wishes. They know what they want and where they want to go, and why!
The Magical World of M. C. Escher coming to the Museum of Art
– DeLand, FL
Maurits Cornelis Escher wanted to capture infinity and cast it onto paper.
To that end, the Dutch graphic artist created lithographs, woodcuts and mezzotints of interlocking reptiles, strange creatures and birds in flight that metamorphosed in and out of each other. He depicted twisted dragons, and ants crawling eternally on a Mobius strip. Read Story Here
I Am Starting A New Tradition for 2018
By Marcella Simmons
Everywhere I look someone is starting a new tradition or making new year’s resolutions… Well, as a writer who just happens to love to love to travel, I want to start a new tradition myself. This year, my new tradition will be to travel to places where I have never been and enjoy life to the fullest a little more than in years past.
Life is too short – I had a near enough death experience in 2017 when I found out I had stage four mouth cancer. The surgeons are confident they got it all and with 6 weeks of radiation coming up, starting tomorrow, five days a week, we hope to have it sealed and gone for good. Having said that, when I got sick it dawned on me that life is shorter than we think, and if we don’t do things while we have the chance that we might not get that chance later on.
So, I am starting a new tradition for myself which includes traveling to a new destination at least once or twice a year, and I am resolving to post (or write) on one or several of my blogs at least once or twice a week.
There’s no time like the present to do what you wish to do with the rest of your life. When I ended up flat of my back after a fourteen hour surgery that left me slightly handicapped for several months and not fully able to speak clearly, scared and bewildered and at the point of sheer despair, and on the point of giving up, I pulled some of my inner strength to the surface and fought with all my might to get well. There is still work to be done, places to be traveled and explored and many travel tales to be written by me.
So here I am, the day after the first day of the new year, vowing to the world that I am starting a new tradition for myself, and bringing my new year’s resolution (to write and blog more) nearer to fruition starting on this day. I have got several trips planned for the upcoming months so you will definitely be reading about some new places that will be unfolding right here before your very eyes!
Whatever your goals, traditions or ideals for the new year are, get started and bring them to fruition with the time you have left! Life is too short to wait because no one is promised a tomorrow or ever after. I was given a new chance and I vow to make every second count for the rest of my life…
