Time for Reflection . . .

The saying, where does the time go certainly applies when looking back at our travel blog.  While researching topics to blog about, we might take the cue from our readers, a specific location, special events that have yet to take place or upcoming holidays.  Before we know it the present and future have become the past.  We try to provide our readers with timely information, and when that is not possible then we do the next best thing, blog about how great the event was.  Our ultimate desire is to provide blogs of interest that are entertaining as well.  So, where do we go from here?

Wherever your and our travels take us – that is our destination!  We hope you will join us as we traverse the far corners of the world, or even our very own back yard, for there is always a story of interest out there.

So, as we say goodbye to 2010, and get ready to herald in the New Year 2011, we leave you with a little reflection of the blogs that appeared throughout 2010 on www.Get-Packin’.com

Following January is February, the shortest month of the year, where we heard the thunder of the Daytona 500, reflected on Black History Month, travelled to many places to compare religious architecture, and 2010 being the year of the Tiger brought forth some interesting facts about the Chinese Zodiac.

In March, guest blogger, Jennifer K, wrote of her trip to India to attend an authentic Indian wedding.  Not only did she bring back a wonderful story to share, she also brought back a lot of great photos of India and the wedding festivities, including a photo of the Taj Mahal.

We couldn’t speak of March without at least mentioning March madness and basketball, before we brought forth the beauty of the flowering fields of Texas as we discussed flower and garden shows aplenty during April. 

Our travels took us into outer space during the month of May when we showcased the Space Shuttle Discovery crew and NASA Astronaut Stephanie Wilson.  After hurtling through space we brought everyone back down to earth for more thrills on Kinga Ka, Tower of Terror, Son of Beast and the Colossus; known to roller coaster enthusiasts as the tallest and fastest roller coasters in the world during the month of June, before we exploded fireworks galore in celebration of our nations birthday on the 4th of July.

The dog days of August had us meandering through “cool” caves in our quest to beat the hot sultry days of summer, and nostalgia as well as educational tourist venues had us visiting popular antique car shows and unique ‘small’ museums during the month of September.

Speaking of things that go bump in the night had us scaring up business when October rolled around, getting an oil change and highlighting America’s Top Ten Safest Cities for tourism.  As we began winding down 2010, November had us hunting up things to do with scruffy looking men sporting scraggily beards, looking in our rear view mirror at America’s beautiful horizons, and talking turkey.

We wished you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, and now it is time to say goodbye to 2010, and shout a resounding HAPPY NEW YEAR, as we turn the calendar pages to 2011!
