FridayFive: Travel

Today's FridayFive is about travel.

1. What's the last place you traveled to, outside your own home state/country? Outside my home state, it was Indianapolis, when I went to the Brickyard 400. That was last weekend. Outside my home country, it was the Bahamas (link, link, link, and link) on the trip that Mrs. Mellow won. That was in the end of June.

2. What's the most bizarre/unusual thing that's ever happened to you while traveling? Nothing really sticks out in my mind. Bizarre/unusual things simply don't happen to me. *grin* [Edit: Actually, I just thought of something that might count. Once, on a flight from NC to DC, I was in one of those little prop planes. When they got to DC, they realized that the landing gear wasn't working quite the way it was supposed to and they might not be able to land on their normal runway. So they cleared a spot in line for us to land on the really big runway, usually reserved for jets, so we'd have plenty of time to stop. When we landed, they had fire trucks and ambulances waiting and travelling on the runway for us in case anything went wrong. Nothing went wrong.]

3. If you could take off to anywhere, money and time being no object, where would you go? Scotland, the ancestral home of my people.

4. Do you prefer traveling by plane, train or car? It depends on the amount of travel necessary. I suppose that train would be my favorite method, but it's pretty expensive when compared to other means of transportation. We drove to Indianapolis, 'cause it was nice to be able to have a car with us while we were there, but I would have rather travelled by plane since it's quicker and less tiring. But if money were no object, I'd go with a train -- I enjoy the motion on the tracks and I really like not being the person responsible for the actual transportation. I like to catch up on my reading while I travel, and I can't really do that if I'm physically driving.

5. What's the next place on your list to visit? Out-of-state, I'm going to the DC area next month. In state, I'm going to Charlotte and Raleigh a couple of times in the comming weeks.
