Off we go….

Cities in the Americas

St. Augustine, Florida, USA Darcy presents St. Augustine is Full of Free Wine posted at Of Winds and Water, saying, “As we travel up the east coast of the US, St. Augustine, FL has been one of our favorite stops. Then again, who could say ‘no’ to free wine?”

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Zhu presents Ottawa’s Tulips Festival posted at Correr Es Mi Destino, saying, “It’s this time of the year again in Ottawa: tulips have taken over the city and dozen of tour bus are parked in front of the Parliament and at Dow’s Lake. People are desperate for colors after our long white winters!”

Omaha, Nebraska, USA Jordy Clements presents CARNIVaL Danse Dement posted at Omaha Music, saying, “CARNIVaL Danse Demet is one of two large annual parties thrown by DJ crew 1/Fourth. With Ames, IA band The Envy Corps and Broken Spindles (Joel Peterson of The Faint) along to help out, The Waiting Room was transformed, at least for one evening.”

Los Angeles, California, USA Jack Norell presents Los Angeles Zoo posted at Eyeflare – Travel Articles and Tips, saying, “Whether a local or visitor to L.A., the Los Angeles County Zoo is a great day out, especially with kids. You’re even encouraged to bring your own food, making it much more budget friendly.”

New York, New York, USA Madeleine Begun Kane presents Limerick Ode To Kathleen Madigan posted at Mad Kane’s Humor Blog.

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada Nick Lewis presents Top 10 things I miss about Vancouver posted at Organized Chaos.

Camp Springs (Joint Base Andrews) Maryland, USA Jon presents Skydiving with the Golden Knights posted at The PlanetEye Traveler – Washington DC, saying, “Imaging jumping in a plane and watching the Army’s parachute team, the Golden Knights jump at a major airshow. That’s what I was able to do…!!”

Los Angeles, California, USA Mary Jo Manzanares presents Los Angeles is Vacation Heaven for Sports Enthusiasts posted at Traveling with MJ, saying, “From the beaches to the hills, from active to spectator, there are lots of sports going on in LA.”

Morrison, Colorado, USA Byteful Travel presents The 3 Unforgettable Sights at Red Rocks Park posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “Natural majesty. Breathtaking views. Absurdly large red rocks. The incredible Red Rocks Park in Morrison, CO is unlike any place you’ve ever been to before. Though this park is on Earth, being in this surreal landscape makes it easy to imagine you’re not on Earth at all.”

Laguna Niguel, California, USA Jennifer Miner presents Ambassadors of the Environment at Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel posted at The Vacation Gals.

Cities in Asia

Shanghai, China Dana Rebmann presents Things to Do in Shanghai with Kids posted at Welcome to the Ciao Bambino Blog, saying, “Traveling in China exposes kids to many new experiences that they cannot find anywhere else – who wouldn’t enjoy riding on the world’s fastest magnetic levitation train – check out how family-friendly Shanghai can be for your Asia adventure.”

Cities in Europe

Sergiev Posad, Russia Gary Mullen presents Sergiev Posad: Home of the Russian Doll posted at Culture Blog, saying, “Hello Sheila, I thought you might find this article about Sergiev Posad interesting. Many thanks, Gary.” (I did like it, Gary; thanks!)
