I recently found an online group called Kansas Women Bloggers. In case it’s not obvious, it’s a gathering place for women … in Kansas … who blog.
One of the features on the KWB site is Wordless Wednesday, and I try to participate as often as I remember to look for the week’s theme ahead of time. A recent theme was Get Your Passport — we were asked to share favorite images from international trips. I took a liberal definition and considered any trip that allowed me to travel across the U.S. border or overseas (therefore I included Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands). I travel a lot and there are a lot of truly international destinations I’d love to visit. Because I didn’t travel much as a kid, though, there are so many places within North America that most of my trips are here or in the Caribbean because it’s fairly easy to reach and affordable.
I’m carrying over the KWB’s theme here and sharing some of my favorites from trips to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (2002); Belize (2006); Hawaii (2007); Alberta, Canada (2009); Cayman Islands (2011); Puerto Rico (2011); St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands (2011); Exumas, Bahamas (2012); Nassau, Bahamas (2012); and Toronto, Ontario, Canada (2013). To keep it under control, I limited myself to no more than two photos per location.
