Back in 2005 my sister Nikki asked me to go to Prague with her for Thanksgiving. Um, yes please. We had a great time and soon started a short tradition of leaving the family and heading to Europe for turkey day. Unfortunately, they don't recognize Thanksgiving, so there was no turkey to be had on this day. Oh, well, I'll take the memories over food any day.
The next year we decided to take our younger brother Marcus along with us as we traveled all around Greece. It was so great to be there with them on this awesome trip. Unfortunately, again we had no turkey for Thanksgiving. We instead ate giros. Side note, I hate giros. But it is all for the memories, not the food.
Shortly after this, my travel partner Nikki married her dear love Cameron. This would have been a huge problem when it came to Thanksgiving travel, but I was able to spend my Thanksgiving at home with my love, Lincoln. We had a great/nervous time as he met most of my family for the first time. It was a great time with great memories AND great food.
This year was another year away from Ohio. However, it was not a year away from family or great food. Lincoln and I went out to Utah to be with his family. We had a great time together. His parents planned a trip down to Moab where we hiked around and enjoyed time in beautiful Utah.
Ok, I know that this post seems forced or maybe an old topic, but it is one of my favorite topics. Each one of those pictures have so many great memories to them. I loved my trips with my sister and brother, and I love my new Thanksgivings with Lincoln. It is all about the memories, not the food.
