"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."

- Augustine of Hippo


"And I think to myself, what a wonderful world."

- Louie Armstrong

"Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow."

- Anita Desai

"Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else."

- Lawrence Block

" Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer."

We have seen places our parents could only imagine in their wildest dreams!

As we travel, we plan to fill the pages with what we learn as we explore this beautiful world and meet its magnificent people. We hope all who stumble upon these pages will enjoy what they find here and will be inspired to get out of town!

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Those are catchy words in a song from our collective past and more recently in a hotel commercial,  but the Brits are taking this question very seriously right now.
