Where Have You Wandered This Summer?

It’s Labor Day. The annual end-of-summer holiday. I can’t believe that soon we will be feeling the crisp autumn air, eating pumpkin pie, and getting ready for Halloween.

Our travels have motivated us to ‘wander’ in the places we visit. We wander to parks, visitor centers, forests, and towns just because there is something interesting there. Our current wandering habits have helped us realize how much we missed out in the places we lived, simply because we didn’t wander enough! We lived in Lehi, UT for about 5 years, and somehow didn’t make it up to visit the Timpanogos Caves, just a few miles from where we lived! Upon our return to sell the house, we rectified that situation and got ourselves up there, and we had a great time.

Part of our motivation for blogging and sharing the stories of our own exploring and wandering was to encourage and motivate others. We don’t expect everybody to take off in an Airstream, but we DO hope that our adventures have encouraged you to explore, wander, and enjoy life just a little more.

Is there a local adventure that you have managed to miss out on? Is there some place that you are waiting to visit? GO! Live your Dream! Then share it with us.

Seriously, we’d love to hear about your adventures. Where did you wander this summer? Was it full of lazy days spent by the pool? Did you finally take that amazing family vacation? Where did you wander to?

Please share a bit of your adventure with us. If you blog, instagram, or facebook, share us a link of stuff already posted. Or email us directly (samandjesscurrenATgmailDOTcom) with some pictures and your story. We would like to periodically share the stories of others and further promote wandering awesomeness.

We hope your fall is just as amazing as your summer!

  • danielle - We wandered to Arkansas 🙂 One of my favorite places to go! We had never been to the SW so everything was new to us though! It was in June but felt like summer so I am counting it 🙂 Other than that it has been the year of lakes. We have never swam in the lakes here but this year we did and it was not too bad! My husband is from MN so he is used to clear lakes but these brown lakes are okay also 🙂 I get travel guides for our area and for those we grew up at (before we make a trip to see family). I try to pretend we are tourist visiting 🙂 I get to see so many amazing things in Oklahoma that so many people have no clue about!

    • Jess - Danielle – That’s so awesome!! Secretly (or not so secretly) I’m dying to go to Arkansas. I’ve heard its absolutely gorgeous!! It sounds like we’ll have to hit you up for ideas when we make it to Oklahoma. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Holly Plyler Olds - Our Labor Day adventures led us to Great Basin to the bristle cone pines. Your pictures were an inspiration. We had been before, but we could not make the hike because of all the snow on the ground. Your blog has helped inspire me and my husband to go back to RV living. We did it the first four years of our marriage, and we miss it. Thanks for sharing your adventures!ReplyCancel

  • lee vincent - We had a great summer of Wandering. We got home in late April after 8 months on the road and spent May and June wandering in our own northern backyard – Yukon (Canada) and Alaska through our adventures.

    July and August have seen us out and about again and we’ve hit Nelson (BC), Regina (Saskatchewan), Kawartha Lakes (Ontario) and Ottawa (Ontario). Some for family, some for road schooling and all for fun!

    We head home tomorrow for a month before we hit the road again for our winter adventures!

    • Jess - Nice! I love hearing about your adventures in Canada! I also love how you balance time at home and time on the road. I’m hoping we can find that kind of a balance in the future. Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

  • Jen - We just got back from Great Sand Dunes NP and Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP in Colorado. I highly recommend both parks, the canyon for the scenery, peacefulness and very dark skies, the sand dunes because it is a giant playground for the kids! Our boys loved exploring the dunes! Many more adventures to come!ReplyCancel

    • Jess - Oooh!! Colorado is SO high on our list. High enough that currently (haha)it is the “go to” place to settle once we are done. Glad to hear you loved it!ReplyCancel
