Flying WEST

It’s Friday and I am flying WEST from Albequerque to Seattle!

I just finished a 14-day tour from Salt Lake City to Yellowstone National Park through Cowboy Country to Mount Rushmore and then to Albuquerque to Seattle. It’s a fun itinerary and my guests see so much of the American countryside!

Do you want to improve your English while traveling through America’s countryside? Contact me and let’s learn a language while on vacation!

Try. Always try.

I studied Spanish in high school for three years. I am not fluent, but I still remember a lot of vocabulary from 20 years ago.
Last night, I was standing in line at a grocery store watching the cashier, who only spoke English, trying to explain a problem to the customer in front of me who only spoke Spanish.
I stepped in and used every Spanish word I could remember to help the situation. My Spanish grammar was poor and I used very basic vocabulary, but the Spanish-speaking woman was very appreciative for explaining the situation to her; so was the English-speaking cashier.

So my advice to you is to always try! Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Always try to speak English with what you know. You can do it!!

Zion National Park

I visited a few national parks in October, but my favorite was Zion National Park.  It was so beautiful!  It’s amazing how these huge rock formations jut* out of the earth into huge mountains.  Standing at the bottom of the ravine, it’s awe-inspiring to look up and see the beautiful red colors of the mountains.  In the ravine, there are even more colors of green and gold and eventually red as the leaves will continue to change.

Zion National Park is a beautiful place to take pictures, go for a hike, and learn English while on vacation!

TRAVEL – Best Photo of 2016


This was my favorite photo of 2016. It is a wonderful photo showing two people coming together in a simple act of respect. It’s what travel does to people. Travel brings people from different cultures together, and shows us we’re not actually all that different. We are all citizens of the world.

The Olympics brings the world together. It puts aside politics and lets camaraderie shine through sports. This is something I want to do with Language on Vacation. To bring people of the world together. To bring people together on a wonderful vacation in America. To join people from various countries of the world through mutual language, respect, and adventure.

Travel with Language on Vacation! Go on an adventure! Improve your English! Meet more travelers of the world! Make new friends!
