Someday… I’m going to have time to travel, and I hope to have the money to do it. There are at least two places on my bucket list that I want to visit before the good Lord takes me home to heaven! Both places were in the news today… sporting events that get coverage but tend to be the off-beat events that only a select few enjoy!
Today the Tour de France rode up Alpe d’Huez in the French Alps. You can learn about it’s history by clicking on this link… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpe_d%27Huez
Also today, The Open Championship golf tournament is being played at Carnoustie in Scotland. Click here to learn more about this great golf links… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnoustie_Golf_Links
I want to visit both places, not to ride or play golf but to just sit and experience the beauty of two places that so many sports battles have been won or lost; where the human spirit has been pushed to its limit; where people have battled physical and emotional moments that have made them stronger!
It doesn’t get much better then this weekend in sports, at least in my opinion… the Tour and the Open, and me lounging in a chair cheering wildly or taking a nap! Someday, I will get there!
