Friend Makin' Monday: Travel!

How was your weekend?  Mine was awesome--I got to go up to Cran Hill Ranch for a weekend retreat with my youth group kids.  We had an incredible time, growing closer to God and to each other.  I'll be sharing pictures later, but now I'm exhausted and not feeling 100%, so I'm just doing a quick Friend Makin' Monday post.  Feel free to play along!

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: Travel

Where did your most recent trip take you? I just got back yesterday from Big Rapids.
Is there a place that you’d like to visit that you haven’t yet? If so, where? There are so many places I'd still like to go!  Mike and I hope to someday do a mission trip to Haiti, and I'd love to visit the Holy Land someday. 
Do you travel lightly, or do you cram as much into your luggage as possible? Funny--we just had this discussion this weekend.  I'm a pretty light traveler.  I've learned to bring just 1 or 2 extra outfits (depending on the length of my trip), but to always put as much necessary stuff as possible in my carryon (if I'm flying)...I've had my luggage lost too many times!
Do your eating and exercise habits change when you travel? If so, how? It really depends on where I'm going.  This weekend I did a lot of walking but I had little control over my food.  When I have the chance, like when we went to Chicago or Canada last year, I did exercise when possible.
Tell us about a place you’ve been that you’d like to go back to. I'd love to go back to both Romania and Jamaica.  I want Mike to experience Romania and we'd both love to get back to Jamaica.
Do you prefer to travel at a certain time of year? No, it makes no difference to me!
If you had to choose, would you go to the beach or the mountains? I love warm weather, so I'd definitely pick the beach.
Have you ever needed a passport to travel? Yes, to Canada, Romania, and Jamaica.
Do you collect anything in your travels? Mike and I buy a magnet every time we go somewhere together.
Where do you plan to go next? We are going on a family vacation to Hawaii with Mike's family in May. 
Now it’s your turn! Don’t forget to come back to share a link in the comments! Happy Monday friends!


  1. Came by from FMM. Oooh, Romania! I'm hoping to go there in the next few years (probably in 2015 I think). I'm going to have to read through your blog to see if you've posted about it.

    1. I have written many posts about Romania! I hope you enjoy reading about it. What are you going to Romania for?


Thanks for reading my blog! Leave me a comment so I can read your thoughts on my thoughts! :)
