Friday 5 for March 31: Oaktown

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5! Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there; then leave a comment below so we will all know where to check out your responses. Please don’t forget to link us from your website!

I’m on a trip! It’s my first non-work-related trip to the continental US since well before September 11. I convinced myself I just couldn’t afford travel, and then I realized all those years had passed and there were too many things I hadn’t yet done. The lockdown made me more determined than ever to make this happen, and now here I am in Oakland, California. Which is a lot more affordable, even with airfare, than a staycation at home. I keep forgetting I live in Hawaii, which lately is very expensive to vacation in.

This week’s questions are inspired by this trip.

  1. What do you know about Oakland or the San Francisco Bay Area?
  2. What are your feelings about Mexican food?
  3. When you have an extended period off from work, whether you travel or not, how much planning do you do for your time?
  4. How susceptible are you to motion sickness?
  5. When did you last try something new with your smartphone?

Thanks for participating, and have a delightful, cozy, safe weekend!

  1. Enjoy your time!!!!

    I hadn’t returned to England for 50 years. The my oldest booked a cheap trip and we stayed in a hostel and it was great fun.
    This year at least 4 trips are planned. Makes me feel so rich! But one trip he won, the others are the cheapest possible. Who cares? I love to be there. We go to free museums, walk, eat cheap and meet up with friends. Makes me happy.
