My Travel List of 2010.....

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.  I travel for travel's sake.  The great affair is to move.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson

(Vancouver Island)

(Cherry Picking Week- Greenbluff, Washington)


(somewhere in Arizona)

(Grand Canyon)

(Edmonton, Alberta)

{The Canadian Rocky Mountains}

(Sedona, Arizona)

(The Backyard)

Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.

~John Howard Payne

No place like it.

Oh I agree. All the other places were pretty, but that "backyard" photo suckered me right in. :)

I like best what you see out in your backyard. I like how nice it looks. I like green, I guess I see the cactus and the rocks in Arizona and that part so much, I really like the pictures of green.

Sedona is the center of the universe to many. I went to school in Tucson,AZ.Vancouver island is dreamy, and watch eating too many cherries during cherry time.Nice picks, I hope to see Vancouver again soon.

i love your photo's Dawn!
it is true there is no place like home but I must say
out of all the places where I've been , there is one place where I've experienced a home feeling as well. I know that the saying...home is where the heart is, is also true.

take care!

Aimee said...

Wow..you've been to some amazing places. But, you're right, there is no place like home! :)

I'm going to bookmark your blog and will be back!

My best to you and I hope you have a very happy New Year!

All beautiful photos... like the others, I agree "theres no place like home". But you have to leave it to really appreiciate it. I think thats half the fun of traveling!

Jimmy said...

I too like the backyard picture, the others are beautiful pictures but that backyard shot tops them all.

What do you have planned for 2011?

Michelle said...

I do love the shot of the backyard.

Pat Tillett said...

That's a lot of travel! You've been busy this year. I've been to all those places (except your back yard), but it took a lot longer than one year!
I've always said I'd never move away from the ocean, but there is something about Sedona that I never felt anywhere else in the world.

Mary said...

I'd post my travel list of 2010, but I don't think photos of my mom's house or the grocery store would be very exciting.

You do get around, girl. Lovely photos -- I'm so envious. :)

Allison said...

I have wandered so much in my life that recently I've begun to ask myself what I've been looking for all these years. And why do I always feel like moving on?

What a list this is..and if i am not mistaken..this is just one continent!
But it can be done!

Beautiful photos Dawn! I love the last one, sometimes the best place to go is the back yard, well out at the farm anyways! :-)
