E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #18

It’s time for EM’s Sunday Ramble. She provides questions on a topic of her choice. Today it is “Vacations and Travel.”

Here are the questions:
1) When at the ocean, do you want to be in it, on it, or just look at it? (If you don’t like visiting the ocean, what is a hobby you enjoy on vacation or in general?) I love the ocean. It is my happy place. I used to need to be in the water swimming.  Now I am OK  wading in and getting my feet wet.  Sitting on the beach, when I am stressed, immediately calms me down. 

2) Have you ever surfed or gone snorkeling? I had a friend who tried to teach me to surf. (Back in my teen years) I could stand up for a second or two, and then fell off the board. I went snorkeling in Hawaii with my ex. It was part of an all day cruise. I have used a boogie board successfully many times. 

3) When traveling, do you experiment with the local dining experience or pack a picnic/cook for yourself and anyone with you? I have tried many different foods in numerous countries. I do have my limits though.

4) What is your biggest pet peeve when traveling? Rude tourists. I try to never be one of those.

5) Are you someone who takes a lot of photos on vacation? If so, you can share your favorite vacation photos. (If not, share your favorite vacation story.)
I loved to take tons and toms of photos. My camera hasn’t worked in years so I must rely on my phone to take shots. I do have some amazing photos in my Shutterfly account.  One of my favorite shots was when traveling to Australia and New Zealand with 30 middle school kids. One of our activities was to go scuba diving and snorkeling. I was all suited up in my wet suit. I sadly had a panic attack caused by claustrophobia. The picture was funny, but I was disappointed at my body’s reaction.

  1. Hi Lauren! That sounds like such fun on your ocean and beach vacations! I use my phone for pics too. The ocean is my calming place, so we share in that as well! Thanks for rambling with me! I’m sorry you got claustrophobia! My daughter gets that, and it’s like torture.
