My Inner Entrepreneur is Awake Now!

Everything seems quiet here in comparison to the last half of 2019. I have few trips on the horizon and while that is a little sad for me, I know I have a lot to do in this first quarter and I want to use the time wisely to make progress towards my goals so…

Happy New Year 2020!

Here we are starting another new decade, and in my head I’m still back in Fall 2019 trying to assemble my photos from all the trips I’ve taken. I want to share some of the videos, pictures, and insights but it will have to be later. Part of the reason is that I haven’t posted…

So Much Travel!

When I started doing blog posts again, it was part of my bigger plan for enriching my life with more travel and brining the joys of travel to you. I thought I’d be able to crank out a couple posts a week, but the reality is that writing takes a lot of time. There is…

The Top Takeaways from the DC Travel and Adventure Show

Saint Patrick’s Day weekend featured another two-day travel show, this time right here in my neck of the woods. How could I be any luckier? The Travel & Adventure Show returned to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC for a fifteenth year. I’d heard of this one, but had never been before….
