Wanderlust and Its Offspring
Posted by April W Gardner on March 28, 2012
At breakfast this morning, I told my 10yo that I had no idea what to write about for my Reflections post today (just bein’ real, folks). He suggested trees. Trees?? I’m still not sure where he meant for me to go with that topic, but it did make me think of the redwood I hugged in California last week, which made me recall with fondness that entire trip, which made me think of ALL the trips I’ve taken recently, which made me wonder how many states I’ve visited since we moved back to America in July of ’09, which gave me the idea for today’s post. Thanks, Buddy!
I thought it would be fun to share pics of all the cities and states I’ve visited in the last 33 months. Most recently, I traveled from Georgia to California–East Coast to West Coast. It took me nearly 24 hours from start to finish, and it wowed me. We have a HUGE country. Granted, it was a round-about way to get to Cali (Atlanta to D.C. to Denver to Ontario, CA), but still, no one can deny America is big. And breathtakingly beautiful!
After eleven years living overseas, we moved from RAF Lakenheath, England to Robins AFB, GA in July of 2009. Two days after arrival, we drove from Atlanta to Nashville and haven’t stopped exploring our amazing country, since. Here are a few shots of those adventures…

Where will we go next? I have a another research trip to Florida in the works. I’ll be exploring the setting of the third book in my Creek Country Saga.
The travels never end!!
