Combine hobbies with GenTraveling!


Hello GenTravelers!

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I’ve been having a BLAST reading posts about road trips from Amy Johnson Crow’s “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” prompts.  Here’s another one that was SO inspiring at My Family’s Branches and Twigs.

It was a great post, but what inspired me was the thought of combining our hobbies with GenTraveling.  Now, I combine my hobby of traveling with my hobby of doing genealogy;  but Barbara goes one step further and combines travel, genealogy, AND riding motorcycles with her husband!

This got me thinking of all the different ways someone could combine their hobbies with GenTraveling.

My husband’s hobby is cycling (not the motor kind), but maybe we should plan a cycling tour with one of our GenTraveling excursions?

I guess I also typically combine my hobby of photography with my GenTraveling.

What are some of your interesting hobbies (other than family history)?  And is there a way for you to combine that hobby with GenTraveling?  I’d love to hear how creative people can be in combining their interests! (This might be dangerous! Something might sound so great that I’ll want to pick up a NEW hobby.  Like I need any more!!! Haha!)



So, are you planning your GenTraveling yet? Where do you plan to go? Be sure to share your GenTraveling Bucket list on our Bucket List Page.  GenTraveling: It’s the Real Deal Thrill!

  1. When I’m visiting a new place on my genealogy travels, I like to learn what plants are growing there, since botany has been part of my work and a hobby. That includes native plants and also what people grow in their gardens. Sometimes I find time to visit a botanical garden, too.
