I don't have the opportunity to travel too often but I would have to say the best time I had traveling would have to be when my husband and I got married. We didn't do the typical honeymoon trip. We drove to Bend, OR where we had a condo for a week but we decided to cut the trip short, after purchasing beach bikes on a whim, and drive up the 101 coast camping at various different camp sites. We rode our new beach bikes on the beach and drank wine straight out of the bottle. We had a great time just enjoying one another and really enjoying the great outdoors. I think this trip will always be a fond memory to keep and cherish as I grow old with my husband.

My worst travel experience was when I was studying abroad in the Czech Republic in college. I decided to go to Poland for a couple of days...well no one told me when I bought my ticket at the travel agency that Canadians had to have a visitor visa in order to enter Poland. At the border, armed Czech guards came on board to check everyone's passports. Because I didn't have a visa (I couldn't understand what they were saying), I got kicked off of the train in the middle of nowhere on a Sunday (trains only ran each way once a day on Sunday). I called my parents and my dad was trying to tell me what to say in Polish, but I wasn't on the Polish side yet! After 10 hours, a train to Prague came through and I headed back. The hostel I reserved accidentally booked me in a male dorm, so after an awful day, I was awoken at 4am by 10 drunk German men... I just hid under my blanket. Worst. experience. ever.

My best travel experience was when my husband and I returned tour roots, him to his birthplace of Bremen in Germany and the port of Bremerhaven where he boarded a ship to his new life in Australia. We then went to England to my birthplace Sheffield in Yorkshire. We also went to the post of Southhampton where I had boarded a ship to my new life in Australia also. The trip was taken to coincide with my 50th birthday and I had a very special experience I woke up on my special 50th birthday in the very same room I was born in. What an amazing experience something I will never forget. The bedroom was in my Nannan and Grandad's house where I had spent some very happy times in my childhood.On the trip we also had the amazing chance of a lifetime in a small coastal village of Whitby where we experienced the arrival of the Barque Endeavour where the original Capt Cook ship of the same name had departed from on her travels to Australia years ago. My husband and I had watched this replica ship Endeavour being built over a period of time and had watched her being launched in Fremantle Western Australia for her trip to England. So can imagine how exciting it was to see her arrive in her original port in this cute little coastal village . This was an amazing trip full of even more wonderful memories, in fact it was this holiday that got me into scrapbooking to record all of the wonderful photos and experiences, to reminisce about for the rest of my life.
