I meant to take pics but somehow... anyway, we left on the last trip with one each guitar, mandolin and tenor 'uke. We returned with those plus a tiple, Puerto Rican cuatro-prima, mandola, three more mandolins, and four more 'ukes. And another tenor 'uke arrived a few days later. It would be a full picture. Good thing I skipped the zithers.

I pretty much know what an ukulele is, but WTH is "vacation?"

I took my OXK camping in Kentucky. Here it is with some hand carved walking sticks found at a flea market on the Country Music Highway outside of Ashland.

Just for the heck of it here is a vid I did when I first got really excited about the ukulele. I went down the beach and asked different people if they would like to play. Plus asked people in my neighborhood. It was very fun and a nostalgic vid for me (: From back when Aldrine would have contests here on UU.

Well hardly a vacation but I took my uke into hospital when I had my knee replacement 4 weeks ago. It helped a lot with thinking about something else except the pain. Hospital staff and other patients would come into my room and listen to me play. They were kind with their comments and it picked my spirits up.

I brought my Bob's Burgers-themed ukuleles to Comic-Con and "just happened" to have one of them in hand at the Q&A line for the show's panel. My question was about something else, but the ukulele got a nice response.

Hi UU

Essential fossil hunting kit for the Jurassic Coast.

One fossil just in case you don't find one - you can pretend...
One drink for drinking and size comparison, just in case people don't believe you that ItsyBitsyUke is pocket sized...
One ItsyBitsyUke to while away the summer day by the beach... Bliss...

pbagley - Is that the famous Rainbow Bridge? I've saw it on the TV in a documentary about.


Stunning photos everyone, you wont get much from me as I don't have a passport, nor travel much. Oh to dream!

Here is a video from my family's trip to Germany last month. My daughter and I played our ukes all over the place. The soundtrack is us performing "Sunshine Lollipops and Rainbows" in a car on the autobahn, for inclusion in Season of the Ukulele 176.

When I was in the States last October, a friend organised a reunion at Katz's Deli in NYC. Some of these people I hadn't seen in 50 years.

Fresh back from a family trip to the Big Island. While there, I did make some time to drive to the "real" side of the island, and was fortunate enough to be able to pay a visit to Chuck Moore's workshop. A most gracious host as well as a most inspiring visit. Definitely the highlight of my trip.
It's not my uke, but I hope this qualifies...
