Today rounds up our month of travel with the Eclectic Express, and where better to end the journey than a sunny-day trip to the Zoo?
I’m particularly fond of the Oregon Zoo — perhaps because it’s the zoo that I’ve spent the most time at since I grew up not far from it. I’ll admit, I was completely surprised when I reached college and realized that not everyone had a Zoo to visit just a short drive from home!
Since it’s also a Saturday we’ll encourage everyone to explore the park, but also take some time to sit down with someone, enjoy some coffee, and share a bit about their week.
If I were having coffee with you I’d suggest we sip our coffee as we wander through some of the area’s of the zoo. Let’s take a meander through the Africa Exhibit first. I’d be excited to tell you not so much about my week (which was fairly average) but rather about the plans I have to continue the Eclectic Express past this month.
It’s really all Hannah‘s fault, she’s the one who brought my attention to a particular reading challenge that sparked the idea. Eclectic Express is going to continue to explore Travel Tales, but we’ll explore new places through reading books that take place in them. Books for the continents and books for each of the US states is where I’ll start (and hopefully I’ll get others to help out with this journey as well – because I love being able to bring other voices to the blog! It will be a grand reading adventure!
Oh! I’d also tell you how fun it was to guest post over at Part TIme Monster this week with yet another Into-The-Woods based post… I swear, I have a non-ITW-based post coming up in the next few months… 🙂
As we wander through a bit more of the Zoo I’d love to hear what you’ve thought of our A to Z journey. And if you have a favorite book that you think I must read for a certain location? Suggestions are always welcome!
