Worrall Travel R's - Kicking the Bucket List

My photo

We are the Worrall Travel R's Roz and Russ Worrall. Our goal before we "kick the bucket" is to see as much of the world as we are able, learn about world cultures, experience making friends around the world, and share goodwill and what we learn with others. WE HOPE YOU JOIN US VIA THE BLOG ON OUR TRAVELS.

We started our world travels in 1969 in VW camper van in the USA, Canada, and Europe, but didn't actively blog about our travels until 2009 aboard our sailing vessel SV Worrall Wind, a 44 ft Nauticat Ketch.  On September 5, 2009 we left San Francisco and took a left at the Golden Gate to Explore the World.

From to Sea to Land
After almost 4 years of cruising Mexico and the South Pacific, we sold our beloved boat in Australia, 2013. The Worrall Travel R's are continuing our travels around by many other means of conveyance -boats,trains, planes, sometimes camels, elephants, rickshaws, and hot air balloons.. 

Russ is a retired engineer, optometrist, professor from U.C. Berkeley. Roz is a retired computer programmer/analyst, educator, (teacher, administrator, professional developer). 

Our Mantra:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
~ Mark Twain

Days 159-173 Vermont to California...End of the 2014 World Odyssey

Imogene is Ready for Her First Christmas
There has been no better way to end our 2014 Odyssey than spending time in Vermont with Garyn, Jessica, and granddaughter Imogene.  We were here when she was born, and now she is almost seven months old, sitting up (almost on her own), rolling, cooing, swimming,  discovering, and celebrating many firsts....

Thanksgiving and her first drumstick,

"Wow!  It's bigger than my leg," says Imogene

Her First Applesauce.
Hmmm.  Not sure about this applesauce.  The drumstick was much more exciting.
Her First Snowfall,
Hey, this white stuff is a little cold!
Her first out of country travel experience to Montreal, Canada.

Her first Santa Parade.

Her First Christmas Tree,
Papa and Nana Gave Imogene and Her Parents a Circus Train to Go Around the Christmas Tree

And her first Christmas a little early with her Nana and Papa.

 Ba Nana's Little Darlin!

No Question who the Center of Attention Is!

We head back to California tomorrow. After 174 days we have completed an around the world odyssey and enjoyed every single minute.  I think the blog will be quiet for the time being until our next trip, not sure when or where, but keep checking the blog because it won't be long before the Worrall Travel Rs are on the move again.

In the meantime,  Happy, healthy holidays and a New Year filled with love, wonder, and discovery.  We are expecting a second grand child in February.  So much fun!

All is Well with the Worrall Travel R's...Home is where the heart is, and we've left  little bits of our hearts all over the world.
