Top three best travel moments:

Quadruple Rainbow Kansas, USA 1996 - After road tripping out west from Kentucky via Wisconsin to Montana, down to Colorado and Kansas we came upon an unbelievable four, count them, four rainbows spread across the vast plains.

©2003 National Geographic Daytona Beach, Florida 1995 - After attending Space Camp with my father at Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center, we decided to stay south a couple of extra days. One of the most memorable experiences from the trip was when dad let me drive our Mazda Navajo on the beach there at Daytona.

Amber, Carson, Jill, Nick, Jenny-Greece 2008 Isle of Santorini, Greece - Spending three full days in a place as beautiful as this puts your mind at ease. Spending that time with people you love and people you love to have fun with, makes it all the better.  Our days and nights on the Island of Santorini were some of the best and most memorable of my life, despite the mind numbing effects of the local beer, Mythos.

Top three worst travel moments:

The Wall Drug The Wall Drug, South Dakota, 1996 - I don’t know that I would call it my worst travel moment of all time but it certainly wasn’t my best. Aunt Lu and dad had the family loaded in the family mini van and we set course for WEST.  We made our way North and West for what seemed like eons in child time and we ended up at the world famous Wall Drug. Aunt Lu talked about ”The Wall Drug” non-stop for 36 hours, we saw signs for Wall Drug for 36 hours, and we wondered for 36 hours what this place could be. Finally, we arrived at our destination. To this day, I don’t know what Wall Drug is.

Supersize my beer, please! Milan, Italy 2008 - (A terrible day comprised of delayed flights from Greece, rechecking bags for connections, rain, delayed trains, and cat feces, all culminating to missing the Pepper concert at the Musicdrome in Milan. - Jill Kerr Tepe) I’d like to add the fact that we were starving and searching unrelentingly for a McDonald’s that served beer, a rarity that can not be experienced stateside. It seemed to me (without my glasses) that every single “M” Metro Station sign was a signal for the beloved Golden Arches.  Mere mirages, mere mirages. We did eventually find a McDonald’s and dined on cheeseburgers and beer!

Stingray of pain Hilton Head Island, South Carolina 1993 - Every year our grandmother would take us to stay in a big house with her other two children’s families, aunts, uncles and cousins -- no one was left behind. We rode bicycles, built sand castles and played in the waves. This particular year, I just happened to be the lucky grandchild awarded with a trip to the emergency room, having been stung by a stingray. I was about 8 years old and to this day I don’t know that I have experienced a pain so severe as that of the venomous dermal dentical (barbed stinger, I use Wikipedia) of that ray.
