My friend Chris tagged me recently, so I must answer 15 questions about myself. Chris did say I could change the rules (if you read Chris's blog Prisim Trail! you already know Chris has never followed a rule in her life)! So, instead of writing out my answers, I am answering in pictures and that way, if you really don't care where I am going on my next vacation, you might still enjoy the photos!

Chris just returned from Hawaii and has posted a series of beautiful photos of her trip. Start here!

Chris also changed the "tag eight people" rule and only tagged one person! I like that change. I am tagging Liz, who just returned from a fabulous trip to Cairo and probably has all the time in the world to do this! Well, maybe not, but she is a wonderful photographer and I am hoping she will follow my lead and answer in pictures. Be sure to join Liz on her Cairo adventure. Bon voyage!

I was so enchanted by the

I was so enchanted by the pbotos of the rain forest and all that luscious moss. So ethereal, it's like looking into an enchanted world. How wonderful that you take all those incredible photos and thanks for sharing them. To me it's very enriching to see something different and experience other ideas.
We've been through Washington but never had time to stop to see places that were off the highways. My hubs was a trucker so I'd go with him to see what could be seen from a truck as we whizzed by. I really miss not getting to go anymore, he retired from trucking in 2004.
I've always loved traveling, my Dad was a bit of a gypsy also, guess that's where I got it from. He'd throw a few clothes in the car and off we'd go, just the two of us.
I'm so glad I clicked on the links to learn more about you.
