The Friday Journal

I’m not an avid traveler, and I’ve never been outside of the United States, but I am a dreamer. Today I thought I’d share a few places I’ve been .

I’ve been to Utah, of course, because I’ve lived here my entire life. so this is where I’ll start.

Personally I favor the old slogan (Still The Right Place) because this one makes it sound like everyone is high.

As for my travels. when I was about ten-years-old my aunt in California got married. So the whole family (plus my grandparents went to california. not my favorite state but I’d never been anywhere else so it was exciting.

I still don’t think much about california, but I did get to visit the beach the second time we went down there, so that was nice.

but onto the real travels.

In 2010 right before my 17th birthday Doc’s family invited me to go to their family reunion in Florida. (Remember we live in Utah, that’s clear on the other side of the country) I was so super psyched!

On the way there we went to

As soon as we crossed the border there were tons of places to buy fireworks…. and we did. Doc bought like $75 dollars worth of fireworks (many of wich we still own and are now legal in Utah)

After Wyoming we visited Colorado, Kansas and Oklahoma (I can only spell this one if I sing it in my head) on the way to Doc’s Grandparents in Texas.

I enjoyed texas, although it was really hot and humid, but I got used to it, plus I was taking a lot of Dramamine (I get car sick really easy. My mother didn’t call me throw-up-baby for nothing) so I hardly notices. We stayed on night with Grandma and Grandpa before getting back on the road again. Grandma made biscuits and Cocoa Gravy for breakfast. It is so delicious! After leaving Grandma and Grandpa we stopped at a gas station and Doc’s mom and dad got a few scratch off lottery tickets just for fun. They gave one to me and I won like $7. It’s dangerous for me to gamble or play the lottery because I always win.

After we left Texas we headed through Louisiana.

(I tried Google translate but it wouldn’t translate the words underneath)

I am not a fan of Louisiana. It was dirty and it smelled funny and I felt all uncomfortable while I was there.

After Louisiana we went through Mississippi and Alabama before we finally made it to florida.

The first thing we did when we got there was, buy some real Florida Oranges! they were so good! After the oranges we found a hotel in Gainsville (This is where Doc was born and where his parents lived before they moved to Utah)

these are the only two substansial trips I have ever been on but I have also been to Navada and Idaho. I cant wait to travel some more. One thing I wish I’d done is take more pictures. I feel like I should have had some pictures with the people I met and the things I did and of other family members. So from now on I’m going to try to take pictures of everything, (as long as I can remember to charge my cameras more often.

Well I hoped you enjoyed taking this little stroll down memory lane with me.
