What Runs Deep In You?

This week's Five Minute Friday prompt is Roots.
 
 Start

As I'm finishing last minute packing on a Friday and wondering why summer weight clothes weigh so much, I know that I'm not the first in my family to go this route.     Third generation world traveler here.    Not my first rodeo, but still a procrastinator.   

Both my grandmothers had lots of travel experiences.   One grandma when she was newly married before having children.   My other grandma when she became a widow when she was still very able to climb in and out of safari jeeps and tour buses.  

Mom is another one.    She took me to Greece earlier this year.   Then she went off to the Canadian Rockies.    Thanksgiving will be in Spain followed by an early December jaunt to St. Lucia.   

I want those roots.    The roots that take pride in an old suitcase, photos and a well-loved passport.  

In the words of country music, "these are my people."  
Stop

  1. I'm right there with you....I love looking through the stamps on my passport and knowing I've been blessed to experience different cultures and have my perspectives stretched. Keep traveling!!
