Share Your World

Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

I try to avoid elevators whenever possible and take the stairs. I don’t like being in an elevator and prefer the stairs from the standpoint of exercise. Exceptions are when visiting a friend who lives on the 23rd floor of her apartment building. I never push the button more than once as it serves no purpose.

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

I like to plan ahead, especially if I am visiting someplace new. I usually map out an itinerary. Each day, where we are going, what we are seeing. Once it did not work out as planned, my husband and I arrived at what we thought would be a lovely place to stay and after one look said “we’re out of here!” We ended up driving farther North and finding a wonderful place to stay and a new area to explore.

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.

I don’t know if these are uplifting, but they kind of describe me. Loyal, Energetic, Trustworthy, Friendly

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert? 

Salt water beach hands down. I hate lakes- all that mud on the bottom and cold dark water. I would never go on a cruise- I like to know I am on land, hot tubs are full of who knows what growing in them, in order to ski it has to be snowy and cold, both of which I don’t like at all, and the desert is just too much sand all in one place.

  1. I like beaches on the ocean but will be content on lakeside locations, Lisa. Your photograph with cottony billowing clouds over the ocean is gorgeous!
    I like cruises along rivers and once took the cruise on Mediterranean from a port in Spain to Mallorca. I don’t like to eat nor sleep on a boat. I used to get seasick and haven’t tried to figure out how to do this way of traveling. I hear bracelets help and over the counter meds work, too. 🙂


  2. I have reached the age and stage where a swimming pool is my idea of great water. No sand. No mud. No snapping turtles or weird spiny fish.

    We used to live on the 17th floor of our building. if the elevators were out, you went to a bar and drank for a few hours. It was a little bit on the high up side 🙂


  3. This was fun getting to know you a bit more. I understand your preference to remain on land. I’m not a good traveler – I prefer both feet planted firmly on the ground.

    I didn’t answer this question in my Share Your World Post, so I’ll share here – I much prefer an ocean to a lake, because of the surf. Sure, the Great Lakes have some amazing waves on stormy days, but not like the oceans. Needs to be off-season – I’m not a fan of heat and beaches.


Thanks for stopping by-Would love to hear what you think!
