Here’s the photo that launched The Green Parrot Travel Club back in 2005. Good-Time Charlie at The Great Wall in a Green Parrot t-shirt. Send us your photo in your Green Parrot Gear to green firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and a brief description of the setting and we’ll post it on the Green Parrot web site
With the 4th of July, 2103 now squarely in our rear-view mirror and summer and all that goes with it spread before us we’d like to revist our Travel Club to see again just how far our far-flung family can fling itself..
Many of our Parrot patrons, if they have not done so already, will be striking out, heading for mountains, lakes and shores both here and abroad, visiting cities, small towns and wilderness areas alike. By air, land or sea, off you go.
Part of your travel routine, and part of your travel fun and entertainment will be, as it always was for me, taking photos.
And whether it’s a new DSLR bought just for the trip or the smart phone lying within easy reach in your purse, backpack or center-console, we know you’ll be taking pictures of many of the landmarks and places of natural beauty you come across.
We would love for you to share with us some of your photos from all these great places and we’ed especially like you to share photos of you in your Parrot gear.
Deb Fecate shows us how it’s done
It can be a Parrot shirt, a parrot hat or even a parrot coozie or key chain.
The context can be thoughtful and meditative (think misty mountaintops), or it can be adventurous and hair-rising (think bungee jumping)
They can be either mundane or exotic (family picnic or African safari)
and they can be tastefully frisky as well, (think “you can leave your hat on”)
At any rate, we’d love to hear from you.

And remember, this was back when sending a photo to the Green Parrot meant taking a photo, getting it developed, getting prints made, then mailing a print to us, in the mail, with a stamp.
Then once we received it, we had to scan it in order to post it on our website where it looked no bigger than the postage stamp it took to get to us in the first place.

Jessica Vagnoni with a more recent example of what we’re talking about.
In appreciation for her submission in Parrot gear with Mt Rushmore as a backdrop we will be posting it permanently on the Green parrot website.
So just send us a photo of yourself (or anyone for that matter) wearing any Green Parrot attire in a picturesque, historical or otherwise remarkable setting and we’ll post it in perpetuity on our website for all you friends, family and Parrot faithful to see.
So with Walt Whitman as our muse we invite you to have safe travels, wherever you are and send us your photos.
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.
Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
