Take Me Away Highlights

The new travel link party, Take Me Away really took off this past week!  Well, actually we didn’t have a huge turnout but those of you who linked up really shared some amazing places!

Instead of just featuring a few, I am going to share all the wonderful trip reports with you!  I will continue to do this each month…until the party turns into a huge bash with hundreds of people cramming to get their travel posts linked up…lol!  Let’s get started.  Take me away…

Cancun Trip - by South Shore Decorating

Stacy from South Shore Decorating took us away with her to the most amazing place she has ever been.  Her stay in Cancun with the girls was a dream trip!  You must check out all the gorgeous photos of this breathtaking resort.  I tend to be a Caribbean fan myself, but this resort has me thinking that I need to look into Mexico.  I promise you, this place really is amazing!

Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite - J Bigg's Little Pieces blog

Speaking of amazing, Judy from J.Biggs Little Pieces took us away to Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite and I was blown away by the beauty of this place.  I have never been to that area of our country but I think I need to add it to my list!

Pedernales Falls - The Other Side of the Road blog

Another place I have never been is the big ‘ol state of Texas!  Tanya from The Other Side of The Road took us away to Pedernales Falls in the Texas hill country.  What a fun family getaway complete with hiking, swimming and ending the day with smores!  A great adventure for kids and the entire family!

LBJ Ranch - The Other Side of the Road blog

But Tanya’s Texas fun didn’t end there.  She also took us away to LBJ Ranch for a trip back in time with a fascinating lesson in history.  What a gorgeous national park to visit!

Graveyard Fields - From My Carolina Home blog

More beautiful falls to admire when Carole from the blog, From My Carolina Home took us away on a hiking trip to Graveyard Fields in the magnificent North Carolina mountains.  Her photos of the falls are truly stunning.

Great Scot Games and British Car Show - From My Carolina Home blog

From My Carolina Home also took us away on a perfect picnic to the Great Scot Games and British Car Show in Greenville, South Carolina.  What a lively day filled with antique cars, music and outdoor games! 

Mackinac Island - Life in my Empty Nest blog

For years, I have heard about the beauty of Northern Michigan and now after reading Vicki’s trip at Life in my Empty NestI am ready to book a vacation.  Vicki took us away on a “memory making” getaway to Mackinaw City and the enchanting Mackinac Island.  I was surprised and delighted to learn that no cars are allowed on Mackinac Island.  What a enjoyable way to spend time with family riding bikes surrounded by lovely scenery!

And that wraps up the May highlights of the Take Me Away Party!  Thank you to everyone who linked up this month!

I hope you will join me again on the first Friday in June for our next round of travel adventures!
