About Us

We are a retired couple that have been traveling the U.S. and the world for the past ten years. We have limited resources and recognize that if we aren’t frugal it could curtail some of our wanderings. We enjoy visiting places and staying for a while but are also very fond of cruising. Together, as a couple, we have visited somewhere near seventy-five locations on the Century Club list and are hoping to make it to one hundred over the next few years.

We started this Travel Blog to chronicle our trips and to share with family and friends. Our hope is that others will find some value in what we are doing and to that end have included information about getting the most out of destinations and travel.

We have added a lot of links wherever possible that are related to each post that will take you to good additional sites, including maps, more information and booking options focused on each topic or destination. Any blue and underlined words represent a link and all you need do is click on them.

If you have a comment or additional information we encourage you to email us directly:

Details On Submissions

We work mostly in MS Word and compatible software so please submit documents in Word or composed directly in the text of your email. We encourage submitting photographs but for ease of use and transfer we would request that you export them in a reduced file size before attaching. We would also like to know something about you and what name you would like credited to the article and the photographs (please no copyrighted photos).

We would hope you will become a follower of this site (see below to sign up) and would also welcome individuals that would like to be a regular contributor. Please send us an email if this interests you.

Also, if we don’t respond right away, understand that we are traveling off and on three to four months a year and are often in situations where the internet is not available or too expensive, so our responses can be delayed.
