WELCOME TO MY TRAVEL BLOG
I have always enjoyed traveling, even if it meant sleeping in a tent when I was younger. I prefer hotels and cruise cabins now, but the motivation is the same...an adventure waiting to happen. Sometimes you will find me traveling with my husband and/or family. Sometimes I will travel alone, and sometimes I will travel with friends. I hope you find it entertaining to keep up to date with me as I explore the world around me. Warning...I like to take pictures of food so don't read if you're hungry. More adventures await...see ya soon...Amy.

Thanksgiving with the Animals
Today is Thanksgiving! We decided to spend the last day of our trip at the San Diego Zoo, in San Diego. It was about a two hour drive south. We were surprised to see that there were quite a few other people who also decided to do the same. The San Diego Zoo is located in Balboa Park in San Diego. It is one of the largest and most progressive zoos in the world. It is said to have over 4,000 animals of more than 800 species. We had seen Giant Pandas at a zoo in Washington D.C., and the San Diego Zoo also has a Giant Panda exhibit. Even though it was pretty chilly, most of the animals were out. The zoo is pretty expansive and hilly so we had a quite a good day of walking around. We ate our Thanksgiving lunch at a fast food stand in the zoo. We left in mid afternoon to go back to Los Angeles. We had checked out of our hotel so that we could move to a hotel closer to the airport. Once we located our hotel, we asked for a recommendation for dinner and found a little family owned spot nearby for a good hot meal. While reviewing our trip details, we realized that we had really enjoyed our trip to L.A. and planned a return trip for Cirque du Soleil and a longer tour at Warner Brothers Studio.
