Weekly State Department Round Up: Oh The Places You've Been

This week's theme:

"Favorite Places"

Places you have discovered on your travels that you have loved or that have kept you sane in some way or another.  At home or abroad - what have been some of your place related joys?

Feel free to email me or leave a comment below before Friday :) 


  1. Happy 6 years to you and Max! I still remember booking it down that hill in Salt Lake trying to get to your wedding on time. I looked to the other side of the street and Matt Coleman ( I think?) was doing the same. Ha ha. Love you!!

  2. hi. nice theme. we just started our first post so our place is somewhere we're now missing (especially since we're in hot, humid chennai, india):

  5. I'm super sorry. I don't know how I missed this! I love the theme. I didn't write this week on one of my fav places - and I have yet to be overseas yet (just a month out from Cairo, though!). However, I did spend some time in Colorado in May on my Army Reserve annual training and had free time enough to run through Garden of the Gods a few times. Here's my archived run photo blog of my journey that day. It was magnificent. Thanks for hosting this week!
