About Me…

Hi there and thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.  This is not your typical travel blog. I don’t offer travel guides with affiliate links, advertisements, or any other commercial activities. My site is simply a venue for me to tell stories about my travels.

Sure, I mention a good hotel we stayed in, and I’ll probably add a link to their website. But the hotel isn’t aware of it and I don’t get anything for it. Its just my opinion, and I offer the link in case my story has sparked your interest.

I also don’t mention the “Best XX things to do in XX for 2024” or any other Google SEO motivated content. I’ll tell you what I did, the good things and the mistakes, what we liked and didn’t like. You can take it or leave it.

Recently, however, they broke with tradition, for they have scheduled…
