Welcome to the new Vicarious Traveler Meme! Share your favorite travel destinations with all of us to see! Whether you’re a seasoned world traveler, or simply an arm-chair traveler, give us your recommendations!

Pull out that photo album and post your own favorites! (Family-Friendly).

Each Thursday, create a blog post about your recent trip or where you’d like to visit and then come back here to add it to the Mr. Linky for everyone to visit!

Since I never got to go away on Spring Break or a Road Trip when I was younger, I’ve started the Vicarious Traveler, and hope you’ll join me in participating each week!

Don’t forget to grab the Vicarious Traveler meme banner!


Last week, I wrote that I was feeling sorry for myself as my youngest daughter was away on a cruise to the Caribbean for Spring Break. She’ll be graduating college in May, and was taking that annual pilgrimage that so many young people do ~ the Mother of All Road Trips.

Here are the dispatches from the Little Mermaid sent via Text Messages shared by DD22 to dear old mom left in Connecticut who was freezing her buns off:

  1. Good morning! Happy Thursday! I put my post up and linked here! Cool meme – even though I don’t travel much! Have a good day!

  2. It is a great meme! Unfortunately, because we are traveling the world and educating our child as we go, I don’t have that much time to play, but I added my latest post about how to be a world traveling family. Hope that helps!

    Looks like your daughter is having a ball! Arm chair travel IS the next best thing to being there!

  3. Cruising is our passion! Some of those ports we’ve never been to, they look beautiful. I’d especially love to visit Aruba.

  4. Connect with your Teens

    That’s the great thing about texting, you heard from her probably more than you would have if she only had the ability to call. I’d rather get a text a day than only a call once a week. Preferably I get both.
