Traveling by Anthony Navetta

Welcome back to my blog. My name is Anthony Navetta and what you may not know about me is that I love to travel with my family. I have been all over the continental United States and have enjoyed the diverse people and attractions that I have seen along the way. Being able to travel anywhere in the country and still find entertaining and fulfilling activities has given me a greater appreciation for the United States.

My favorite memory was when I went to Atlanta, GA, in 1996 to attend the Summer Olympics. I frequently run marathons and was even the track-and-field coach while teaching at a middle school many years earlier, so I took the opportunity to see the 200 meter finals. As luck would have it, I ended up witnessing what I still consider to be one of the highlights of travels, as American Michael Johnson set a new world record. I was very fortunate to experience the moment with my family by my side.

When my family and I took a trip to California, we opted to avoid the glitz of the entertainment capital of the world and instead see some of the most beautiful natural sites in the world. At Mount St. Helens, I found evidence of the most recent volcanic eruption, while the snow at Mount Rainier provided a nice contrast that was no less tranquil.

Next time, I will blog more about the places I have traveled, including locations like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, Mount Rushmore, and the Oklahoma City National Memorial.

To gain a greater appreciation for the places I described above, you can take a look at the pictures I have uploaded at Pinterest by searching for me (Anthony Navetta) or by clicking this link: Anthony Navetta Pinterest
