I'm happy we have an extra day in February this year because, so far, it has been one fun, exciting, and busy month!
I'm on tour. A virtual tour around the Internet to celebrate my current release, THE RODEO MAN'S DAUGHTER. In this book, my hero takes a trip—back to his own hometown. It's a trip he'll never forget, as the visit brings him smack up against a number of memories, some good and some terrible.
Today, I'd like to talk about good memories.
I once took a trip—a real-life tour—that made a lasting impression: ten days in Europe with a large group of students. And with a smaller number of teacher-chaperones, all of whom actually survived to return home and teach again. LOL
Our adventure began in Spain, where we stood in hushed awe inside churches in Barcelona, felt our blood pulse to the rhythms of the Flamenco in Seville, and—for those who chose to do so—held our breath during a bullfight in Madrid.
We spent two beautiful, sunny days walking the beach and chasing the surf on Palma de Mallorca.
And before the trip ended, we took a ferry to Morocco, where we rode camels and ate exotic food and spent an afternoon at the Kasbah.
I sound like an ad for a travel agency, don't I? (smile) Sorry. But I can't help it.
In those ten days, we probably saw more breathtaking sites and came smack up against more history than I ever had in my life. The photos we took faded, but the memories have stayed bright.
Have you ever visited a place that's made such a lasting impression?
All my best to you,
Barbara White Daille
