About

A family of 3 who loves to travel, see new places, do new things and enjoy the world around us…. these are our trips and travels

Just a last thing… this is an “award free blog.”  I am so flattered (and so very grateful) that anybody would think it worthy of recognition.  I love writing new posts and reading other posts, but have to balance blog time with family and work commitments.  Award nominations need a lot of extra time, so unfortunately I can’t commit to that.  I am rewarded already that someone reads my stuff – so thank you!

  1. thank you for liking my post on biking and travel this morning and I’m thrilled that you enjoyed it despite your busy schedule. I too find it a challenge to combine work – family of 3 – blogging. But it feels so fulfilling when I actually get that chance. It’s the pleasure and fun really that matters and I wish you lots more . Tristane

  6. I am so curious as to how often you travel because you have posted about so many cities around the world. But your “About” section offers no answers. Really great blog.. I wish I had some background info though 🙂

  8. Hi,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. You’ve been to some amazing places. I couldn’t see if you had an Instagram account as well. I’m one of those people that enjoys other people’s travel photos especially of places I haven’t been to.
    cheers
