What You Won’t Find:

While I’ve explored four continents and a good chunk of my home country (the US), my travel experience still has some holes. To be transparent, here are some specific travel topics for which I have little to offer readers at the moment:

  • This blog offers nothing for people who want to travel the world full-time. If that’s you, I wish you well…luckily, there are plenty of other resources out there for you.
  • I am not a camper. I do not “rough it,” nor have I ever taken multi-day hikes or slept somewhere without a roof.
  • At the same time, I most definitely do not stay in high-end resorts, all-inclusives, spas, etc. Think mid-range hotels and vacation rentals. That’s my sweet spot.
  • I have never gone on a cruise. Sorry…I’ve got nothin’ for you on that topic. Though I have opinions on why we haven’t cruised.
  • We are not foodies. I have a family full of fairly picky eaters. You will very rarely see me citing a specific restaurant.
