It’s time for the Saturday Six, brought to you courtesy of Patrick’s Place. This time it’s all about travel, something I do not do nearly enough of lately!

1. Which of the following methods of travel do you most prefer: plane, train or automobile? It depends on the distance, if it’s going to be over 6 hours by car then definitely airplane.

2. What is the furthest distance you have travelled by each method listed above? I have travelled by car about 800 miles in one trip to Colorado from Las Vegas. By plane I have gone from Las Vegas to New Jersey, that’s about 2,515 miles.  I must admit I have never travelled by train, I need to remedy that!

3. When flying, do you prefer to fly during the daytime or during the night? I prefer to fly during the day. I can’t sleep on the plane and when I travel overnight, I feel like I am keeping my neighbors awake with my reading light.

4. Take the quiz: What’s Your Travel Personality.


Your Travel Personality Is: Easygoing

When you travel, you’re looking for a lot of downtime. Vacations are your chance to recoup.
All you need is a scenic spot and plenty of time on your hands. You’ll figure out the rest.
You’re not one to make lots of plans when you travel. You just follow whatever path seems right.

That’s not surprising to me at all!

5. If you had the chance to take a one-year vacation and spend that time traveling anywhere in the country you wanted by motor home, would you do it, and if so, where would you most likely wind up? I wouldn’t end up in one place. I would make an effort to see as many places as I could in the one year’s time. I would do a loop around the country and then loop back through the middle.

6. Do you have any superstitions or rituals you rely on before or during a big trip? Not really. I just always make sure to travel my entertainment bag – books and knitting, that way I’m good to go wherever I end up!

Happy Saturday!

Made snow angels? Many, many choirs of angels

Built a fort/igloo? Every winter

One or the Other…

Tree is fake/real? Real until three years ago, now fake. I miss having a real tree.

House/entire yard is decorated? Yes and no. Behold the Santa shelves!
