Simply put, a Travel Bug is a trackable tag that you attach to an item. This allows you to track your item on Geocaching.com. The item becomes a hitchhiker that is carried from cache to cache (or person to person) in the real world and you can follow its progress online.About a week later, Rufus arrived!
Wanting to show my little German friend the beauties of the area, my sister and I took him on a grand tour of Detroit (yes, this is how I celebrated my birthday!)
Our first stop was the Belle Isle Aquarium:
Windsor skyline - Ambassador Bridge - Detroit skyline
Detroit Train Station
Spirit of Detroit
Joe Louis Fist
The RenCen and the statue of Cadillac
The Detroit Skyline
Underground Railroad Statue (Windsor in the background)
Ambassador Bridge and the Boblo Boat
The Ren Cen - Belle Isle - Detroit River
Windsor, Ontario Canada
Lorna photobombed my pic. Run, Rufus, run!
The OTHER "Big 3" in Detroit: Red Wings (Hockeytown Cafe), Detroit Tigers (Comerica Park), and Detroit Lions (Ford field).
We also enjoyed lunch at the Green Dot Stables (amazing!), saw the Potted Potter (at City Theater) and then dinner at Roman Village Cafe (in Dearborn). My sister spoiled me and was an amazing part of this great adventure.
And Rufus? Took him to the Detroit Zoo the next day.
