Kow and Tell Friday: Travel Edition


Another week, another set of questions. I (Reese) have a friend flying into England from Germany so in honor of her visit this week will be all about travel. Can't wait to read your answers!

1. What is your favorite mode of transportation (flying, train, car, boat, etc.)? Why?

2. If you could fly like Superman, jump and swing like Spiderman, swing on vines like Tarzan or fly on an umbrella like Mary Poppins, which would you choose?

3. You're driving down the road and you see a small cluster of people, all with their thumbs out hoping to hitch a ride with you. As you near the group you realize that the people standing there are Queen Elizabeth, Johnny Depp, Barrack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and John Grisham. You only have room for one person. Who would you pick up?


4. What was the most memorable trip you've ever taken?

5. If you were planning a road trip with your best friend, where would you start, what would you stop to see and where would you end?

6. You are able to transport yourself back to any time. What would it be and why?

7. Would you have flown with the Wright Brothers when they first discovered air travel?


Reese's Answers:


1. What is your favorite mode of transportation (flying, train, car, boat, etc.)? Why?
I love the speed and efficiency of air travel. It's really a headache flying with little kids, but if they were older or I was alone I'd enjoy it all the more. A cruise would be fun too.

2. If you could fly like Superman, jump and swing like Spiderman, swing on vines like Tarzan or fly on an umbrella like Mary Poppins, which would you choose?
Spiderman looks so free and limber, I'd go for swinging and jumping around a city.

3. You're driving down the road and you see a small cluster of people, all with their thumbs out hoping to hitch a ride with you. As you near the group you realize that the people standing there are Queen Elizabeth, Johnny Depp, Barrack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and John Grisham. You only have room for one person. Who would you pick up?
I'd be afraid to drive The Queen anywhere; can you imagine the lawsuit if I maimed her in an accident?! Obama and Oprah... I make it a point not to discuss politics very often, so they're out. (Besides I'm not an Oprah fan. She'd probably have me in tears over some heart-wrenching tale before the end of the trip. Then I couldn't see to drive properly... and can you imagine that lawsuit?!) John Grisham... hm, maybe. If I happened to have a fully complete book manuscript by my side I'd probably pick him up and lock him in the car till he promised to read it. But, Johnny Depp is reported to be extremely nice and I'd pick him up in a heartbeat. I might try to get a small part in his next movie too! Plus, I'd like to know what he smells like. LOL! He looks like he smells really good.


4. What was the most memorable trip you've ever taken? Hard to say. Probably the first time I crossed the English Channel into England. I had fantasized about going to England so many times. It was like a dream. At the time I didn't know I'd eventually move here. Tim kept smiling at me, holding my hand, whispering how happy he was so take me. He ended up tossing his cookies into the "rubbish bin" on the ferry which made it all the more memorable!

5. If you were planning a road trip with your best friend, where would you start, what would you stop to see and where would you end?
I think I'd start on the East Coast and make my way west toward my hometown in Oregon. Maybe start in New York and hit Amish country in Pennsylvania, Chicago, Yosemite National Park, and maybe even stop in at Las Vegas.

6. You are able to transport yourself back to any time. What would it be and why?
Texas, 1800's. I want to see my cowboy ancestors in action.

7. Would you have flown with the Wright Brothers when they first discovered air travel?
No way, Jose.

Heather's Answers:

1. What is your favorite mode of transportation (flying, train, car, boat, etc.)? Why? I guess I would say I really enjoy the car, if I am not driving. When you drive you can stop for a break and check out the scenery

2. If you could fly like Superman, jump and swing like Spiderman, swing on vines like Tarzan or fly on an umbrella like Mary Poppins, which would you choose? I have always thought it would be a blast to swing on vines like Tarzan.

3. You're driving down the road and you see a small cluster of people, all with their thumbs out hoping to hitch a ride with you. As you near the group you realize that the people standing there are Queen Elizabeth, Johnny Depp, Barrack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and John Grisham. You only have room for one person. Who would you pick up? Oh, definitely Johnny Depp! (which reminds me of a certain evening in Germany) LOL! Heather, you'd better explain that one. It sounds a little naughty without explanation. :)

4. What was the most memorable trip you've ever taken? Most definitely my trip last year to Germany and Italy. It was such a blessing to be able to go see Reese and her family. I was able to see castles, quaint villages and cottages, the Vatican, Colosseum, Pantheon, etc., etc. We had so much fun!

5. If you were planning a road trip with your best friend, where would you start, what would you stop to see and where would you end? I think I would meet her on the East Coast and just drive wherever we wanted until we hit Oregon.

6. You are able to transport yourself back to any time. What would it be and why?
Definitely the 1800s. That is my favorite time period. I love learning how the pioneer's lived and what they did.

7. Would you have flown with the Wright Brothers when they first discovered air travel? Not in a million years.

  2. Fun questions and answers! I'd never travel to the 1800s ... I'm too into modern conveniences... like toilets that flush and showers that have hot water. and straightening irons. and cars. etc.

  5. LOL! Kow and Tell - good one!

    Okay, the night in Germany is going to sound really boring now that Reese has made it sound naughty! LOL! Hmmm, too bad it wasn't a tad bit naughty, I mean it doesn't even involve the real Johnny Depp ;)

    So, Holly, Reese & I were sitting in Reese's livingroom having a nice quiet chat when her son, Sean, walks in with a blanket held up in front of him. It was one of those wonderful fleece blankets with Johnny Depps face as Jack Sparrow. Reese's dog Gretchen, a jack russell terrier, starts going absolutly crazy. She's attacking Sean and barking, poor thing is just going nuts. Then we realize she is scared of the Jack Sparrow face that Sean is holding up. It was so funny! Probably a "had to be there" moment, and not naughty at all! LOL!

  7. Great questions...as usual!

    Reese, I never would have thought about the responsibility (& liabilty) of hauling around the Queen. And I am just cracking up that you want to smell Johnny Depp. Too funny!

    Heather, I envy that trip you took overseas. How fun!

    Looks like all 3 of us want to travel back to the 1800's. Wonder what we would all think of that time period when we were there.

  8. Great questions again! This was a lot of fun...very creative. Reese, so funny that you want to smell Johnny Depp...never thought of it, but you're right he does look like he smells good! (LOVED the pic, BTW!) And Heather, I must admit I was a bit disappointed in the Germany story after all the hype! Thanks for another fun Friday!
