Did you ever have people say things to you like….?
- You should write a book.
- You should write stories about your Mom and Dad.
- You should write about all the places you have been.
These are words that some of my close friends have said to me on a number of occasions.
Should I write about my many experiences and share my stories with all of you?
I set up a facebook page and called it Traveling with LucyResources.
Hmm… maybe that’s what I should share on this page!
Someone asked how many countries have I visited and off the top of my head I said probably 100! Well, why don’t you do a series called Traveling Tuesdays and write about one place each week was his next comment.
And so the idea was starting to gel.
The first thing I did was wonder if I should tell the stories in Chronological Order or Alphabetical Order and so I wrote down the alphabet and made a list of the countries I had travelled to beside each letter.
I learned something! There is only one country that starts with O and that is Oman! Guess what! I was there twice when I taught in Kuwait. I had the opportunity to travel to Oman with the school volleyball team as the chaperone for the varsity girls’ team.
There is only one country that begins with the letter W and that is Wales in the UK and yes, I have been in Wales on a trip to England. Friends from my church in Lethbridge had moved with their family to Canada and they were from Wales. I had the opportunity to visit Wendy’s parents at their home near Cardiff in Wales.
I also learned there are no countries that start with X, but there are places in China that start with X. When I get to the letter X, I want to tell you about the Terra Cotta warriors that I had the chance to see while staying in a city nearby that starts with an X.
So now, that I have peeked your interest…let this adventure begin!
