Midwest adventure, baby!

IMG_2526 IMG_2533 IMG_2537 IMG_2538BAM!  Here we are traipsing around in the heartland of the United States of America…Minneapolis…Madison, Wisconsin, etc….wow, it is totally exotic out here…no kidding, it is, really.  What brings us out here?  A secret mission that I am not allowed to reveal just yet.

What I can reveal though is that the rolling hills of Wisconsin are lovely.  Frank Lloyd Wright was born here, educated here, and designed many of his most famous buildings here in south central Wisconsin in his home near a place called Spring Green on the banks of the Wisconsin River.  We are honored to be here and to walk in his footsteps…see the landscapes that inspired his Prairie Style home designs…breathe the air that he breathed…mingle with the folks he mingled with. . .mmmm, aaaahh!

The main thing we like about Wisconsin so far is the people. . .everyone is throwing the so-called ‘wall of nice’ at us here, and we are rolling with it magnanimously. . .we can throwdown with some “nice” just as enthusiastically as anyone. . .keep it coming, Sconnies…jaaaa!!

Anyway, if you are looking for adventure then look no further than the landscapes around you wherever you are. . .there are magic and joy and fascinating people and places of interest EVERYWHERE, even in Wisconsin. . .come on out here some time…you will like it–I gar-ron-taaay!

I send you Prairie-style vibes from south central Wisconsin…feel them…they will make you go, ‘aaaahh.’

To see more amazing images from around our teeny-tiny planet simply click on a location of your choice in the category menu on the ‘About’ page of this blog. . .dive on in. . .so much to see and sooooo little time.

It’s lovely out there.

  1. Gee, I’ve never heard of Madison described as “exotic”. That word, “Sconnie”…. in my 60+ years, I’ve never heard anyone who grew up here use that term…. maybe it was invented by someone from New Jersey? 😉


    • Yes, totally exotic when seen through the eyes of my Taiwanese-born wife…I never heard the term ‘Sconnie’ either until we actually immersed ourselves in Badger country. . .and as far as I can tell, there is no one in New Jersey who does enough contemplating of things Wisconsin to create derivative terms for Wisconsinites. Cheers!
