Travel Essentials

Yarn and a hook are a must when traveling.
It is my preferred form of in-flight entertainment.
I also take along a book, magazine and word search puzzles for times when I need a break from crocheting.
All of the above were crocheted on our recent flight to Amman, Jordan to attend the wedding of our friends' daughter.
During car travel and on the flight back, I also managed to finish a heart and three washcloths.
Our trips to Jordan are always enjoyable no matter what we do.
I'll leave you with photos from our walk near the hotel on the first afternoon.
 Patterned pavers.
 Grape leaves.
 Islamic Educational College established 1947.
Side streets.
Brilliant sunbursts.
Wall art in front of the British Council.
Coffee roaster.
Have a great Monday!

Very nice photo montage of your trip. I especially like those pavers. Have a great week.

You and I are alike with the crocheting. When I'm going to a doctor or anywhere I will wait I always be sure to have something small tucked in my purse to crochet during the wait. An that includes travel in planes or cars and waiting in airports! We are working on a new project for women in Haiti--water bottle crocheted holders with shoulder straps. They are so cute. I enjoyed your photos of Jordan.

Enjoyed the photos and it's nice that you have something you love for creating. I don't have interest in crocheting or anything like that, and I won't be flying anywhere, but rather in the car, my interest is music all the time, looking out the window, and talking, talking, talking. That's me. :) Right now, the gardening season has begun here so virtually all of my free time, except for time when Jim and I are out and about in his little car or visiting our favorite little pub/restaurant, will be spent outdoors in our yard, piddling with something. I had my first migraine in a while over the weekend and it got really really bad last night so I'm off work today but thankfully the pressure is letting up now and I'll likely enjoy the afternoon outdoors. My Mom was really bad last night, she was running from their yard next door and peering through our fence while we were out on the patio and Sarah went to tend to her and she was asking Sarah "Do you know who I am or where my family is?" This is what our life has become now. Her birthday is coming this weekend - 87.

I love to read about your travels Tammy. Tom and myself have never been further than Scotland and then only once. People are amazed that we haven't visited any coutries abroad. It's a bit late now for us and we wouldn't leave the moggies but I still like to read and see your excursions.

It is my preferred entertainment too. I always want to take a project to work on while on the road. Lovely pictures. It must have been an enjoyable trip.

You certainly got a lot accomplished during your flight. I always take crocheting or knitting along to along with a word search and a book too. Thank you for the beautiful photos that you shared. I don't think I'll probably ever make it to that part of the world so it's fun to see things through your eyes.
Blessings, Betsy

You sure get a lot accomplished! How long is the flight?! I haven't flown anywhere for five years now. I usually take a good thick book because I hate trying to hear the in-flight movies. I also am never sure if knitting needles are allowed on a flight these days, so I leave them at home. I hope you had a nice time at the wedding. Enjoy your week,
Wendy

Love your crochet pieces Tammy. Did they let you take your hook inside the plane? I never take mine in fear they take it away ...

Teresa Kasner said...

I love all the bracelets on your wrist.. I want to send you one that I've made someday soon. I am so impressed with how many things you made while on that trip.. how long was the flight? I bet you gave some of those little hearts away while there. I hope you're having some nice weather at home. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Hello Tammy. I've enjoyed the walk around the hotel where you stayed on your trip and the views across the area. Love the little photo vignettes of what you saw. It must have been a good time as you attended a wedding.

Dee said...

We have many independent coffee roasters here in north Florida, but that coffee roaster in your photo is GORGEOUS. I've not seen a prettier one.

I also love the wall at the British Embassy. Isn't that a wonderful way to make the "ugly" a bit more tasteful.

Looks like you had a wonderful trip to Jordan and you certainly were productive on your trip.

Beautiful photos! I used to love to look out the window when flying....so gorgeous up there! You did get a lot of crocheting in and so pretty. Have fun at the wedding and the history there must be fascinating. Hugs~Sam

I loved these photos. My high school best friend's parents came from Jordan and it makes me think of them.

Travel crochet is so fun. The hardest part is choosing what yarn to take. I always pack too much of it for fear of running out. Hasn't happened yet! :)

Hope your boys are doing well.

linda said...

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip Tammy and yes taking crochet along is a must, I must say you were very productive, my choice of project is usually a baby blanket however some airlines wont allow hooks or needles on board so I always check first. Love the photo's. :) x

Melanie said...

As you know, I'm not a crocheter - but I certainly love seeing all your handiwork! Thanks for sharing the photos of Jordan. Hope you had a good time at the wedding!

Wanda said...

What a fun post. Love your in flight entertainment...have yard and hook will travel. HaHa. What cute little items. I always pack a book. I guess the airlines don't consider a hook a weapon.

Enjoyed you post very much.

Tanna said...

Yes, when I pack for a trip it is as important as clothes and toiletries to have a project or two in my carry-on. ;) Beautiful photos, Tammy! blessings and hugs ~ tanna

Gracie Saylor said...

A couple of posts ago I showed what I was crocheting on a plane flight :) I also took some art supplies and a book and used them a bit too. Thanks for the lovely photos! xx
