10 on Tuesday - On Thursday

I'm a little behind this week. And I can't seem to organize my brain well enough to put together any of the 3 posts I've been thinking about due to this insane hormonal headache (and a weird toothache/ jaw-ache) so I am going back to Chelsea's 10 on Tuesday and answering pre-made questions. (Chelsea just had a baby, too. Our boys share a birthday)

1. Favorite way to travel (plane, train, automobile, etc.)
Depending on how far and who I'm with. I prefer a plane for great distances (more than a few hours drive), but a car for closer (less than 6 hours) journeys. I'm not a big fan of train travel, but I've only ever taken tourist rides on a train, so I guess I don't know for sure.
I can handle any length of trip with Daddy Fuss, but with kids, it becomes much more of a challenge and with our families, it's a whole new ball-game. :)

2. Where’s your favorite place to travel to that you’ve been to?
New Orleans or Prince Edward Island

3. Where’s the place that you want to go but have never been?
Europe, Charleston, SC, Wine Country in Washington and Oregon.

4. Do you deal with traffic well?

5. Ever had an emergency while traveling?
No, thank goodness.
6. Do you have a passport? What countries have you been to?
No passport, I've only ever been to Canada and I went before passports were required for travel into Canada.

7. Are you’ve light packer or do you pack everything but the kitchen sink?
Depends how long I'm going to be gone, but really, I'm more of a light packer. Though I've learned that there are always challenges in weather and accommodations that you have to consider.
8. Do you take the fastest route or the road less traveled?
Fastest route. I'm not into the actual travel, I want the destination.

9. Do any activities on the road? (like road games, reading, sleeping, etc. )
My husband and I talk a lot. Or I sleep, depending on the situation. But I can only sleep for small quantities of time in the car.

10. Use a paper map or GPS?

  1. I took a train last year from Philadelphia to New York and it was pretty interesting. These days it's not the most economical way to travel so I'd almost say "why bother".

    Charleston is beautiful. It's one of our favorite places to vacation, but we also like to camp and there are some nice places to camp about 30 minutes outside of Charleston so you can go into the city for the day and play tourist. I've been to wine country in California (amazing) but not to Oregon or Washington, so that's on my list too.

    BTW, my friend Jordan had a baby boy named Kellen on the same day as you too :) She was induced a week late as you were induced a week early - you might actually have been within an hour of each other.
