Blog Challenge: Write a Travel Post

I travel pretty much full-time, living on the road, sleeping in motor homes, trailers, tents, hotels, and other odd places. I started traveling extensively when I was a teenager, turning it into a full-time life in 1996. I have lots of travel stories I share on , and this week, I want your travel stories.

This week’s blog challenge is:

Write a Travel Post.

Write a travel story or memoir. Recall a experience recently or in the past on a trip. You don’t have to explain the whole trip or give a blow by blow travelogue, just tell us about an experience you had traveling.

Take us there. Make the location and situation come alive. Was the moment funny? Sad? What made it memorable? Was it the people you encountered, the situation, the struggle to get to or from your destination?

Show us pictures. Show us pictures with words. Help us travel with you as you tell your traveling story.

These are published weekly and are an attempt to kick your blogging ass. They serve to challenge your thinking and efforts in blogging and blog writing. To participate, start challenging yourself now. Today. Go for it.

    @ Shefali:

    It’s times like this when your conscious must be your guide. If you think you can write a better travel post today, do one now and see how you improve for the doing. There are no awards here. You get the pleasure from the doing, and if pointing to the old thrills you no end, go for it.

    Definately will not go to Vilamoura anymore, 6 Hour rounds of Golf and 4.5 Euros for a beer , we will stay clear of the Vilamoura golf courses this year, and the so called free shuttle bus turns up if you are lucky.
