June 30, 2013–Vacation’s end

Day 122/365.  I love entering Kentucky from the south on I-75, just over the border from Jellico, TN.  It is the prettiest Interstate entry point of this state, in my opinion.  Cattletsburg, Louisville, and Northern Kentucky don’t have the unspoiled scenery that you find here.

June 21, 2013–Travel and technicolor

Day 112/365. “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine

I enjoy travel of any type.  Destinations near or far make me happy because they give me the opportunity to see different scenery.   They also provide me with wonderful photo ops 🙂 Before travel I’m like Dorothy in Kansas:

En route, and once I reach my destination I feel like Dorothy in Oz (without the tornadoes, wicked witches, angry apple trees and flying monkeys!):

My time off work so far has been a combination staycation/vacation with trips to Louisville, Cincinnati, Atlanta, and different parts of Lexington. As always I enjoy the journey, the stuff I see along the way, and the things I do once I get there.
