    What is your most treasured travel moment?

    Seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time on my 50th birthday is up there for me.

    I had such an amazing time in Key West, Florida.  I treasured every moment down there whether it was a fun or breathtaking moment.  There is a great combination of fun people and wonderful times on the ocean that I have not experienced anywhere else.

    Oh I have so many! Traveling to Korea and Russia was so awesome and educational I loved learning about new cultures.  Also when I was 11 my family took 3.5 months to travel across the US by motor home.  So many incredible sights! I would love to do it again!

    My most treasured travel moment involved relaxing in a hammock with my husband on an island in the Bahamas. It was during our honeymoon last year and was picture perfect. I hope I get the opportunity to have many more travel moments throughout my life!

    Years ago I was on a working holiday in Ireland. We managed to score tickets to see U2 in Croke Park, Dublin. Croke Park is a stadium where concerts are held and football is played etc.
    In 1920 during the Irish War of Independence, 14 civilians were killed in Croke Park, making it one of the 2 infamous "Bloody Sunday"s.
    Hearing U2 belting out that song, in a stadium 80,000 strong, standing on the pitch where the event happened and people were killed was such a poignant moment for me, as I'm sure it was for many that night.

    In my city there is a German howitzer from the First World War, it is my favorite monument to visit because it is a reminder of the sacrifices on all sides during war.

    There's been so many of them! I'd probably narrow it down to riding through the streets of London watching the night life, learning about how God shaped humanity through an excursion through Europe, or just China and Singapore in general. All very cool.
    now that I think about it though, the ones that probably mean the most to me are the ones where we concentrated on helping others and not ourselves (mission trips)

    I like storms...........lightning, hail, wind, ice..................

    As a child ( reared by Grandparents), my Grandmother was afraid of storms.  My Grandpa met them head on.  It is his tendency that I follow.

    Being domestic travelers, on a long, tiring journey, my hubby and I were at odds with one another............we were simply road weary and tired........

    The Kansas hiways had become mundane, and expected.............while stopping for fuel and restroom breaks...........hubby said, " come, and see".........

    A true storm was on the horizon.........clouds, rain, wind,   rainbows, the sky was dark and yet, held a scarlet hue..........this was weather turmoil..........and we would be driving straight into it.........we were on a schedule........the eye of the storm dared us.............

    and we met her.........

    As storms go, this one was not "fantastic" or even worthy of the national weather news............but, for a fleeting moment, the colors of the stormy sky exploded into a great majestic free for all.....................and even though he was upset with me for other matters.........my hubby, called me to see............

    That Kansas storm healed a rift between us.............I knew that he appreciated my appreciation, and he knew that his value was valued by me.

    Personal strife and struggle gave way to the majesty of the skies......as we faced ( and endured) that storm together.

    Perhaps, this story is too 'romantic' or "too simple" for  this board, but it  is A story among stories, that make the story of my life.  It is a most cherished memory......my hubby called me forth, to see the turbulent sky in its colorful glory and threat, knowing, that I would be humbled and made calm by it's brewing.

    Stepping off the plane in Scotland.  For all the places I have traveled...Scotland is the only place that felt like home within 5 seconds of leaving the plane.

    Sailing into Venice at sunset to the sounds of Vivaldi.  Priceless.

    My most special travel moment was when my fiance and I travelled to Paris in May this year. It was our first time away on our own and we ended up having lunch under the Eiffel Tower on my birthday. It was so romantic and a day I will remember for the rest of my life.

    One summer, in the Swiss Bernese Oberland Alps, I was in a party of Scouts that hiked up to a mountain hut just at the snowline - about 5,000 ft as I recall. We arrived at dusk and spent the night in the hut.

    We got up before dawn and hiked up a glacier to the top of the alp, arriving just as the Sun came up over the whole southern Alps range.  We stood in total awe as the finest day in living memory showed us a 360 degree panorama of those majestic mountains, blazing white under a deep blue sky.  Sharp, clear air; a flask of hot coffee; breathless from the climb; the company of like-minded souls; nature in all its glory.

    That was a travel experience that will remain in my memory always.

    Thank you all for sharing your travel memories.  There are some stories I can really relate to - davenmidtown, your recollection of stepping off the plane in Scotland, truly resonated with me.  From my first visit I was in love, and Scotland, in general, was the object of my affection.

    The most exciting aspect of travel is, these memories you've shared now, can and will be surpassed by other adventures beyond the next departure lounge.
