Karen Presley Cosse asked this question on the Facebook page for Travel with Aging Parents: “What are your funnest travel moments with Mom?” I’ve decided to answer that question with pictures. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words – and Mom and I must have a million words’ worth of shared travel stories!
May 2001: Mom and I testing out the ancient potties in the Roman ruins outside of Valencia, Spain. Like mother like daughter!
Thanksgiving 2003: Drinking hurricanes in Pat O’Brien’s courtyard in New Orleans (one of our favorite US cities) before taking a cruise. And joining us on this trip was one Karen Cosse, who sent in this week’s Reader Question!
October 2004: Our last family trip together to Branson, Missouri. Dad unexpectedly passed away less than a year later.
Thanksgiving 2006: Family vacation to Washington, DC including dinner with Louise Koehler:
I struggled to narrow down which pictures to share here. Over the years, Mom and I have shared too many fun moments to count! Here’s to many, many more adventures together!
Thanks for the question, Karen!
