One of the best things about Shutterfly has to be the Share sites. There are so many great ones, covering family, school, youth sports, pets, passions, genealogy and more. Some of my favorite Share sites are about traveling. When I visit a travel site I feel like I’m taking a virtual vacation, and I’m always inspired get out and see more of the world.
One of my favorite sites is called Clyde’s Photography. It chronicles a couple’s bicycling trip from Oregon to Virginia, which they took 20 years ago when first married, and now 20 years later they are doing it again. They’re biking through Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Virginia. The entire trip will be recorded in photos and journal entries – about the rains, animals, state lines, meeting people, heat, National Parks, covered bridges and beautiful countrysides. I always look forward to reading their stories and seeing their pictures.
North To Alaska
Jamie, her mother Linda and their friend Kay went on a land and cruise trip to Alaska last year. Jamie researched this trip to perfection, even listing the names and websites of the things they enjoyed while in Alaska. Her Share site shows page after page of beautiful pictures and useful information (which I plan to use when I take my own trip up North!).
This Share site shows gorgeous Fall foliage from a New England Cruise that Barb and her husband, Phil took in 2008. There are many other travel pages on this site as well – the Caribbean, Vancouver and Alaska are just a few of them. I actually met Barb in Vancouver. We both live in Texas but found out we were going to be in Vancouver at the same time, so it was a wonderful chance meeting!
Joanne takes cruising to another level. Her most recent cruise was to Europe with ports in Spain, Portugal, Italy, France and the UK. She lists all her ports, and all the gorgeous places they visited. Joanne, her husband and two daughters are booked to travel the seas again in 2011. I can hardly wait to see her pictures and journals.
Susan recently took a bus trip across the Mid-West, and saw beautiful country side, including Mt Rushmore. She wears wonderful hats on her travels, and usually gets her picture taken while wearing them. I love seeing what kind of hat she’ll wear next. What a great way to spice up your trip.
