The Friday Five - Vacation Style!

The Friday Five makes its appearance two weeks in a row; please, hold your applause. <giggle> For those of you that haven't played before, all you have to do is answer these five questions in the comments below or in your own journal (but don't forget to link back here!). The first player of the week will have her or his journal promoted next week. Also, we always accept questions or themes from our players! Enjoy! Last week's entry can be found here.

Last week's first player was Dawn, of Carpe Diem. Seize the day she tells us, because every day is a precious gift and a chance for us to make a difference in the lives of the people that love us the most and that we love in return. It's a chance to make a difference in the lives of people you do not love, and that love you. Dawn teaches us that life is love, no matter the quality of the other, her journal shows that they too, need our love. And on we go!

1. What is (or would be) your dream vacation?

Easy! I would travel with the Yankees for the ENTIRE season - away, home, wouldn't matter. How much fun!

2. What's one thing no vacation can do without?

An atlas. If you don't know how to get from here to there, go get a map. Don't argue. Don't huff. Don't puff. There's no point. She's right and you are lost.

3. What has been the best trip of your life so far?

In 2001, three other adults and myself brought twenty-two of my students to the Yucatan peninsula for a strip studying the ancient Mayan civilization. That moved my heart and soul.

4. Who was with you on that trip and what is the role of that person in your life?

Jillian, Jon, and Lori were all chaperones. Mariana was our tour company liaison (she was amazing) and her husband drove the company bus. I had twenty-two students, of which, only six were boys. INSANITY

5. What's the worst thing that can happen during a vacation?

Car/transportation issues. I HATE traveling there. I just want to BE there. I'm becoming a much greater fan of trains for that very reason.

Enjoy folks! Don't forget to link back!
