I signed up for Blogapalooza with travel writer Angela K. Nickerson at her blog "Just Go!" to write about my scariest travel story. I thought this would be a piece of cake, then I sat at the computer with absolutely nothing coming to me. I called to Mr. Man and he didn't have any suggestions, he actually said we've never had any travel nightmares! Wow, could this be? We've done tons of traveling with two children without any mishaps. I could think of plenty of scary traveling stories from when I was a child. My daughter walked in the den and I asked her if she had any memories about traveling misadventures. Oh, yeah tons she said. How about the time Deke had to go to the emergency room in Horse Cave, Kentucky or when he got his head stuck in a chair at the Alice in Wonderland tea party at Disney World. The time our car broke down in Nowhere, Pennsylvania and we had to ride in a tow truck for two hours or the time she threw up salt water taffy all night in Mackinaw. How about the time in Paris when you complained that the sheets in the folding bed hadn't been changed from the previous guest and we had to listen to the apartment manager yelling about us from her apartment all night? Finally she said, "Mom, an easier question would have been do I have any memories of traveling when we haven't had any nightmares? No!"
I had truly forgotten about all of these things, I guess that's why we still go on trips.
