X words ~ Alphabe- Thursday

This week’s letter is ‘X’ for

~ X words ~

Finding X words is a challenge, X is a tough letter in our alphabet. And most certainly not one made for travel blogging, unless you have been to China, which I have not. There are also a few other places e.g. Xanten in Germany and some cities in Spain, Brazil, Laos to name a few. Unfortunately I have not been to any of them. So, what am I to do? I really want to write, but not just about Xyz. I don’t really like babbling along, so here is a quick brainstorm of my view on Xs:

Brooklyn Bridge, night

Xterra – our car / surf and vacation mobile

eXport – my previous life’s career

eXcellent – (hopefully) my photography

eXtraordinaire – my husband

eXpress – doesn’t everybody seem to be in eXpress mode all the time?

sun, raysXterra

Xing – a funny way of saying ‘cross-ing’ (pedXing/deerXing etc. – just try to say them pronouncing the X as an X and not as ‘cross’)

Xyz – this and that

eXplore – something everybody should do, at least at some time

X-files – mystery, scifi drama that I loved way back

eXtraterrestrial – something I believe eXists

full moon, clouds

eXistance – less than life / more than dead

eXample – be a good one or none

The list could go on and on, now that I think about it. But honestly I don’t want to strain my data plan on my cell phone too much. Our broadband internet connection is still down. Apparently our whole town is without cable. Probably a disaster for those having and loving tv. While we don’t have a tv, now, we also don’t have Netflix. But we have got a whole library of films on DVD and books. Until next time!

    • Thank you very much, Jen. That is actually what I had in mind, when I posted this one here with these photos – fun! Glad I succeeded.

    • Thanks, Jamie – it felt so eXtraterrestrial when I stood there looking at the full moon and clouds gathering around me 😉

    • You got that right, Wanda 😉 But from a travel blog point of view I am also not looking forward to the next letter…

  1. I’ve been reading that so many counties and cities are still without power, cable, water. The enormity of that storm is quite jaw dropping.

    I can’t believe you came up with so many great X words in spite of natural disaster!

    Be safe.

    And thank you for linking.


    • We, personally, had been so lucky this time around, however, more then two weeks later there are still people without power – unbelievable.
