  1. It is an interesting idea to lead your reader to the places that will end with where you will have thanksgiving. Well done, Also, thanks for the feedback on mine. It is not always easy to write pieces that are entirely grammatically correct the first time I post them. Thanks for reading!


  2. I absolutely love this! What a creative idea. I especially like the simplicity of your statements after each location. Sometimes it’s hard to wrap up travel in to one sentence, and this really was really cool to see how you captured each moment in a few words. Well done!!


  3. I like how you constructed this post! Girl you have been everywhere! That’s amazing! I haven’t traveled as much as my list would be, New York City, Florida, Virgina and South Carolina for Thanksgiving! I have go hit international waters soon for the holidays!


    • Thank you for the quick feedback, V! This post actually isn’t all of the places I have traveled to for Thanksgiving. It’s me giving “thanks” to places that I have been (not necessarily over the holidays) that left their mark on my life. Usually the holidays are spent at home with family haha.

      • Ahh got it! Well then I like the list even more. Every place left a memorable mark on your life and what’s to come is even more exciting!


  4. What a fun idea! You’ve really presented these places in a nutshell to us. That’s what traveling’s all about, not so much the sights but the interesting things that happen while there and the people you meet. A lovely post!
