The World is a Book…

Travel

I love it.

I’ve been lots of places… and I love seeing not only those “traditionally tourist” sights, but also making sure to get off the beaten path and see the interesting places that really represent the area.

I’ve documented a lot of our travels over the years on our dedicated Travel page. And, if you know me, there are (literally) hundreds of photos from each trip as well in our Travel Photo Gallery.

Interesting Places

I’ve wanted to write more and regular blog posts. So, I thought I’d use these trips to highlight and maybe even give some additional information on some of the more remote interesting places that we’ve seen. I’ll enjoy reliving some of those trips, and I’ll really love diving into some of the more obscure things that you may not have known about before.

This sounds like fun.

I hope you’ll enjoy them as I come up with different things to write about!

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