Friday Five: Tourist Edition

reverendmother here... It seems like this topic has been done before, but I can't find it in the archives, so......

I am downtown on retreat this week. Most of the retreatants are from out of town, so I get to experience this place through the eyes of visitors. So in the spirit of tourism:

1. What is one place you make sure to take out-of-town guests when they visit? (you can be vague to preserve your anonymity if you like)

2. When visiting another city or town, do you try to cram as much in as possible, or take it slow and easy?

3. When traveling, where are we most likely to find you: strolling through a museum, checking out the local shopping, or _________________?

4. Do you like organized tours and/or carefully planned itineraries, or would you rather strike out and just see what happens?

5. After an extended trip, what do you find yourself craving most about home?

  1. MIne will come lots later in the day since I am at work....

  2. I played tourist

    Now I want to go on vacation...

  3. Come travel over to preacher, blogger or procrastinator... and be prepared because that right there is as good as it gets.

  4. Ooh, what I meant was that lame 'travel' reference was as good as it gets... my actual post is quite boring.

    I'll stop talking now.

  5. I played, too--and I included an original photo...

  6. "We're going on a trip in a little rocketship..." (bonus points for the one who can identify those lyrics)

  7. In this cold snowy weather I wish I could get away

  8. Road trip. I am in. Let's go!

    Hey reverendmother, are you snowed in there?

    Just want to know who is coming here after you read what I am offering?

  9. *dingdingdingding* Now boarding Flight 567 at Gate E14.

  10. I played here. Back to packing; sending blessings to Sally and anyone else traveling this very weekend.

  11. I played, for the first time in a while!

    I also posted my t-fig sermon here. comments coveted!

    If links don't work (a serious possibility...), I'm at CleverTitleHere...

  12. We're planning a trip to D.C., NY & Boston over Memorial Day, so I'll be reading for any hints!

    I played here - sit and stay a spell..

  13. No can play. Reedy Girl has strep. Harpy Girl has a concert. I have to finish a paper after a morning at the pediatrician's office... and we are taking teens to a Chrysalis weekend in less than two hours.


  14. I just got back from a trip and played.

  15. I like to travel! Just haven't done enough of it!
