Ten Years Ago in Travel

Today's tour guide is a no show (or, rather, a no confirm) and our BlogTrotting tour operator and queen troubleshooter is enjoying some sun, sand, seafood, and Sophie Bean in Myrtle Beach this week.

When I heard Cara was heading to Myrtle Beach, I thought, "Hey, I was just there." Then, I realized by "just," I really mean five years ago. Five years ago when I was secretly pregnant (as in, only a handful of the people we were with in Myrtle Beach knew about it) with my firstborn and had no idea how much my life was about to change.

Anyway, I thought it would be fun for BlogTrotters to choose a random year (or years) ending in zero or five and list a place or places you traveled in that year . . .

Do you recognize that traveler you were in 2005, 2000, 1995, 1990, 1985, 1980, 1975 or further back?

I've picked one or two travel destinations for each year:

2005 -- Delran, NJ & Grand Bahama Island
2000 -- Bath, England & South Bend, IN
1995 -- Cancun, Mexico & Sandusky, OH
1990 -- Sea Island, GA
1985 -- no idea . . . help me out, mom!
1980 -- likely nowhere . . . maybe Dayton, OH for a family reunion?
1975 -- again, a little help, mom?

Okay then, play along with this silly travel quiz or go on with your day! Leave a comment if you want to share some of your past travel destinations!


  1. 1975 india
    1980 Paris
    1985 London
    1990 California
    1995 Indonesia
    2000 India
    20005 some where in Europe

  2. I would have to put some thought into this one, but since we pretty much stay east of the Mississippi and south of the Ohio River, it's a sure bet that we were in Tennessee, South Carolina or Florida for many of those years :)

  3. 1985 - St. Louis, MO
    1990 - I'm from Alaska, and every couple of years my dad used to take us on these long road trips across the country ... Niagra Falls was the destination this year (both American and Canadian sides).
    1995 - Edmonton, AB
    2000 - Malibu, Ca
    2005 - Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo
    2010 - Maui, HI

    Wow, I kind of wish my international travels landed more on the round years! hahaha ...

  4. I can't even begin to do those 1980 and before. I'm not sure even my mom would remember. :) But from then on...
    1985 - Houston, TX
    1990 - Beaver Creek, CO
    1995 - Costa Rica
    2000 - Rome, Italy/Paris, France
    2005 - New Orleans, LA
    2010 - Myrtle Beach!
    2015 - Ireland (I'm making it happen!!)
