Friday Five

I got this link from Dani’s website. What a cool way to open up discussions!

1. What’s the last place you traveled to, outside your own home state/country?
Las Vegas (state) / Mexico (country)

2. What’s the most bizarre/unusual thing that’s ever happened to you while traveling?
So many bizarre things have happened! My Dad tried to feed me to the geese in front of Buckingham Palace and that was pretty strange. But Canada was the strangest. People kept yelling “Texas!!” at us in the car, and everywhere that we went, they would turn off the good music and turn up some really trashy Canadian county music. We also ate at a place called The Ranch, where everyone in the place (all five of them) had just stepped off the boat from Ireland. One of them was named Ronald McDonald. It was really strange. Tip to Canadian visitors: everything costs double what it is here, and if you ask for an iced tea, they get really upset with you.
Oh! And don’t ask for pickle relish in London; they think it’s the funniest thing they’ve ever heard. “You want ‘pickled relish’? Doesn’t that rather defeat the purpose?”

3. If you could take off to anywhere, money and time being no object, where would you go?
That’s easy. I’d bundle up in my warm clothes and take off to the west coast of Ireland. Cairo runs a close second, with all of Greece at third, and Germany and Spain tied for fourth.

4. Do you prefer traveling by plane, train or car?
You know, I like all three. But there’s just something exotic about riding on a train. We don’t get to do that a lot in Texas. It’s prohibitively expensive here.

5. What’s the next place on your list to visit?
I’m really going to try to hit California this year, but I’ve got to go to Houston or Denton again soon. My relatives are starting to think that I fell off the face of the earth.
