I figured a “Throwback Thursday” would be a most appropriate time to wax nostalgic and invite you to join me on my next virtual vacation! This weekend I will set off on a wondrous adventure “across the pond” touring southern England! As if that weren’t fabulous enough, I’m traveling with my daughter Sara, just the two of us, as her graduation gift before she heads off to college next month!
During my 25+ years at ABC7, many of you have watched Sara grow up over the years - here’s the nostalgic part - and during that time she has become an incredible traveler!
She took her first cruise before she was 2 - at 4, she was climbing pyramids in Mexico!
At 6, Sara accompanied me and my Mom on a trip to Spain - 3 generations in our mother country! At 10, Sara was sightseeing through ancient Greece; at 12 she experienced the glaciers of Alaska!
I took her to President Obama’s first inauguration - we explored the holy land together with members of our congregation.
I chaperoned a high school choir trip to Ireland, and back in the states we took road trips to our national parks and the entire stretch of Rt. 66! Sara’s 18th birthday with a destination party to the “Happiest Place on Earth!”
I now invite you to join us on our next adventure, as I share our discoveries in London and many other historic places in the UK. We arrive at Heathrow Airport Monday August 4th; posts on Facebook and Twitter soon to follow! As this is an “interactive vacation,” feel free to make suggestions, ask questions or give advice - this is the first time in the UK for both of us!
One more thing - a heartfelt thanks to my incredibly understanding husband for giving Sara and I this special bonding time while he stays at home. Besides, someone has to watch the dogs, right?!
