Seasoned traveler Arlene Blessing has roughed it in a tent in Montana, squeezed an old bus through a narrow tunnel in the Black Hills, shopped in London's Piccadilly Square, and spotted a humpback whale in Alaska. In her amusing and educational travelogue, Blessing combines interesting historical facts with entertaining personal anecdotes that chronicle her many trips within the United States and around the world with family, friends, and acquaintances. Blessing begins with stories about her travels to Yellowstone, Montana, South Dakota, and beyond as she and her family set out to satiate their curiosity about the world outside the comforts of their own home. As she continues with details about her travels outside the border, Blessing provides a glimpse into her often humorous experiences as she toured “Hell” in George Town, Grand Cayman; crossed the Taieri Gorge in New Zealand aboard a narrow gauge train; and bravely cruised the Mexican Riviera after a tsunami in Japan. We Were There But Where? shares the experiences and history surrounding a veteran traveler as she embarked on remarkable adventures in the United States and beyond.
