TH July Tag - The World Adventure Travel Theme

Made this Tim Holtz July Tag with The World A Great Adventure Travel theme. You can see details on making this at Tim Holtz's blog listed below in the challenges.

I've not traveled outside of the U.S. much but have enjoyed my travels which include: Bahamas (Freeport), Canada (Niagara Falls, Ontario & Vancouver) and U.S.

My fav travels have included Alaska. I took a cruise & a land tour and would go back to Alaska in a heartbeat. I would do the land tour first this time followed by the cruise. Enjoyed 2 Hawaiian islands: Maui & Oahu. Earlier this yr hubby & I took a mini vacation to Washington DC where I enjoyed seeing & photographing the Panda cub Bei Bei and the Cherry Blossoms.
