Stay-at-Home Traveler: Destination Rankings, Vol. I

In this series, I will be sharing my personal top 10 countries I’d most like to visit. This list is ever-changing, but some of these places have been on my mind for a long time. For me, every country has something worth visiting, but I had to narrow it down. I hope they will interest…

Armchair Rebellion from a Stay-At-Home Traveler

Returning from a neighborhood walk the other day, I made a decision. It’s time to travel again! No, not the kind that requires a plane ticket or passport.

Musings in the Time of Coronavirus

The last time I posted anything here, I had promised a lot. I was going to write up about our travels to Tahiti, my progress with an entrepreneurial course, and other life and travel related items.

What’s going on with this blog??

It has been over a month since my last post, so I wanted to give you an update on what’s happening. I am working on some posts about our Atlanta trip in April, but they will be posted on my forthcoming website that I hope to launch in the early summer. You will find new…

Front Page!

This week I was featured on the front page of my hometown newspaper, the Saint Marys Star. I was interviewed about my travels, focusing on Kansas and day trip opportunities within two hours from St. Marys. It was not the first time I had been in the newspaper, but it was a first for being…
