It's a creekmore world

The Creekmore Family Adventures


2007 Europe and Ukraine

This was our first trip, after Trish’s 2005 cancer, and a test of our willingness. Sadly it was unblogged, but many of the elements of future trips were created here. (Kids: Lily 3, Emma 6)

  • England was easy but we stayed in a medieval castle for two nights.
  • France delivered the spooky catacombs of Paris and trasky Euro-Disney
  • Ukraine had the warmest people and the cold ‘beach’ of the Volga river.


2009 Middle East trip

The trip that birthed the blog. What started as quick notes and a few photos quickly expanded as our adventures grew more interesting and complicated.
