8/20 December Blog Challenge: Where have I traveled.

Traveling. It’s a pretty amazing thing to do. There is so much to see, learn and experience. Its so great in fact that many people list it as one of their life ambitions. I am no different. I love traveling, the excitement of seeing a new place…. or even revisiting somewhere and the price in knowing how to get around. It’s all so amazing and its absolutely wonderful that we live in a day and age where, although not cheap, pretty much anywhere you want to go is a possibility.

I have not done a lot of traveling compared to some people… but I have gone to a few places. 🙂

Countries I have visited

1. Canada – of course I live here… I have been to all but 2 provinces and the territories ( Newfoundland and Manitoba – in case you wanted to know the two i haven’t been to.. yet!)

2. USA – I have mostly been to the border states. Too many to list… Ill have to just add a map!

amChart3. Mexico – Ive been to places right along the border because I used to live in Arizona and you can pretty much toss a rock into Mexico from where I lived. Ive also been to a resort outside of Playa Del Carman. It was pretty awesome swimming in the hot hot ocean water!

4. Europe – I worked on a cruise ship in 2010… so for 4 months we traveled around to Italy, France, Spain, Tunisia and Malta. It was pretty amazing… Also when I was in grade 10 or 11, I traveled to Italy and Greece and visited turkey. And I had an amazing layover in 2010 in Amsterdam. It was so much fun exploring around and getting a quick taste of another country.

 

I would love to travel more places. Some of the places on my list are : Japan, Norway and because I want more beaches and swimming.. places like Dominican, Cuba, Bahamas and Jamaica!… I would also like to travel to outer space…

Where have you traveled or where have you always wanted to go?

5/20 December Blog Challenge: A list of all the places I have lived.

moving

So to start this blog post off… I should probably warn you that I have lived so many places that I will probably forget a few so I should probably try and start at the beginning and go in chronological order.

  1. Somewhere before Meacham I think some place called Colonsay SK. (1982)
  2. Meacham SK (1982)
  3. Prince Albert SK
  4. Yuma AZ (1986-ish)
  5. Prince Albert – again
  6. Yuma AZ Again (1988)
  7. Prince Albert YET again!
  8. Cobble hill BC (1989)
  9. Duncan BC (1989)
  10. Mill Bay BC (1989)
  11. Prince Albert SK
  12. Regina (1994-ish)
  13. Edmonton (1995ish)
  14. Prince Albert (1999)
  15. Edmonton (2000)
  16. Prince Albert (2004)
  17. Edmonton (2004)
  18. A cruise ship in the Mediterranean for 4 months (2010)
  19. Edmonton (2010)
  20. Oromocto NB (2012)
  21. and finally back to Edmonton Alberta! (2013)

Now, that is only 21 places in the last 32 years… But I can also tell you that in each of those places, I moved around a bit too. Fun Fact : 13 schools total form K-12.

I am really good at packing… and I don’t have a childhood home that I remember growing up in… I remember fragments of my childhood at different houses. Sometimes I think that I missed out on things like having friends that you grew up with your whole life ( though I do have a couple friends that I knew wayyyy back then that I still keep in touch with!!)… But sometimes I also think, How lucky was I!?!! I got to go and do all these awesome things in all these different places….

When I was in grade two… I lived in Yuma AZ… I had a pool in my back yard… which doesn’t happen in Saskatchewan because… it is winter for seemingly 70% of the year. My sister and I were homes schooled during that time, so we basically did our school work by the pool…. yeah I’m jealous of me too!

So there you have it… all the places I have lived… well the cities anyhow. 😉
