Reactionary Tales


Yesterday and today I got the opportunity to travel to a state I never thought I’d ever have a reason to visit: Wisconsin. My work participated in a tradeshow and I got to experience what’s involved in these types of events. The show itself was pretty cool but a few of my photo opportunities came from walking around outside. Whenever I travel to a place I’ve never been to before it’s always interesting to compare the area to my home.

One cool thing about travelling to new places is experiencing the people, their everyday lives and their culture. You will always meet someone who is proud of the town they stay in and eager to tell you all about it. These past two days I met a variety of individuals from a variety of backgrounds, age groups, and geographical locations. All had stories of their home towns in some form or another. You can tell they all had deep roots because even though they were in a new place, they couldn’t help but talk about getting back home to their friends and families; back into their regular routine. But they hope to pique your interest, entice you to come visit or at the very least, share their story.

        We live in the Chicago area now, but one of my s-i-l’s lives in Akron. We’ll be spending the night there this Wednesday on our way to Philadelphia. I’ll wave. πŸ™‚ I grew up in Nebraska.

          I will wave back! You’re coming at a good time. We’re experiencing rain but it’s been in the 70s and 80s consistently lately!

            Cold and rainy here,so I’m looking forward to the warmer weather. According to my weather app, though, by Wednesday night, it will be cold and rainy there, too. πŸ™
