" 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!
