World of Wow: Share Your Story!

Original Image Source: Flickr

Isn't this world we live in so incredible? Travel is definitely one of my favorite things. I've loved the places I've been, and I've got a bucket list a mile long of places I'd love to see.

So I started a fun travel series to travel vicariously to all the amazing places readers have visited. Want to see where they've been? See the posts here.

If you'd like to share your submission, here's the deal: Choose any place, near or far, and share something that surprised you when you visited or lived there. The first sentence for submitted posts is this prompt:

When I went to ___________, I never expected ____________________.

Then tell your story. I'm so excited. I can't wait to hear about your excursions. Need a few ideas to get you started? Here's a few I could write, mixed with ones I just made up.

When I went to Kenya, I never expected to need an ice pick.
When I went to Atlanta, I never expected to eat boiled pig's feet. 
When I went to Guatemala, I never expected to see a mother nursing on a motorcycle.
When I went to Thailand, I never expected to fall in love.
When I went to Pennsylvania, I never expected to learn so much about my mother. 
When I went to Uruguay, I never expected to understand power and privilege in a new way.
When I went to Cancun, I never expected the water to actually be turquoise.

I mean... seriously. That water is ridiculous. 

The story you tell is up to you. You can celebrate the beauty, the culture, the people. Or you may share honestly about the challenges. You can make us laugh or make us think. 

If you have any question, please feel free to ask in the comments or contact me directly. Otherwise, let's get this party started! You can sign up here.
