Puzzlers for Traveling Word Nerds

English: The Austin-Bergstrom International Ai...

I’m on the road a good deal this summer for work, and finding the time to work on this project is particularly challenging when my schedule includes a lot of travel.

Like many people, I’ve got a love/hate relationship with travel. I don’t mind being in different cities doing different things, but I’m not crazy about getting there. I wrote about that a bit in a post about Christmas travel a few months back.

Still, travel days can offer large chunks of time to do some badge work. I usually bring my needlework along (simple tea towels, but man it’s time consuming!), but this time I opted to spend some my time in that truly lousy, old , and uncomfortable American Airlines S-80 on another kind of task.

BADGE WORK UPDATE: PUZZLERS

A task for the Puzzlers badge asks scouts to create their own Word Search puzzle, based on a theme of their choosing, with at least ten words, and share it with others. My theme of choice? Travel, of course.

So if you travel a lot, or love word search puzzles, or want to kill a few minutes without turning to Angry Birds again, this puzzle might be for you. You should be able to find 41 travel-related words up, down, right to left, left to right, or diagonally in either direction. You’ll find all the words listed below the puzzle. If you want to save the image to print out, just right click on the puzzle and save to your computer.

And if you need help with this, you can find me this week at the following airports: Austin Bergstrom International Airport; Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport; and Ronald Reagan (National) Airport in D.C.

Word Key:

  1. I like these kind of word search puzzles, the only problem is that I solve them too fast!! Not sure if you have such control but the one thing that would be helpful for travelers that wish to take this puzzle with them is for a “Print Compatible” option on the page, so that it can be easily printed. Otherwise, Good Job!!
