Thunder Ridge area

Fort Myers and the Blue Ridge

We were supposed to be in Spain, but the worldwide pandemic canceled that. So we went on a quick road trip to Florida instead, figuring that we could bail out and head home any time. And we were glad we did, because we ended up doing just that!

Three weeks of sun, sand, snorkeling, and relaxation at Tobacco Caye, Caye Caulker, and Placencia. With a little rainforest and a trip to the zoo mixed in.

Lake Michigan (Mostly)

We spent two weeks in September camping on the Lake Michigan coast, at four different Michigan state parks: Wilderness, Young (on Lake Charlevoix), Interlochen, and Ludington.


Australia and New Zealand

Australia has been on my bucket list forever. New Zealand was added after the Lord of the Rings movies. We combined two trips of a lifetime into a single seven-week adventure on the other side of the earth to Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Uluru, Cairns, and Auckland, Wellington, Nelson, Dunedin, Te Anau, and Queenstown.

Hi there!

One reason for creating this site was to share our travel experiences with family and friends. (And anyone else who’s interested!) So you’ll see posts and photos related to our past trips. Lots of photos.

Click on a heading or photo in the boxes to left or in the Trips menu at the top of the page to read about a trip. 

You’ll also see information about planning for future trips. We enjoy researching and planning trips ALMOST as much as we enjoy taking trips.

You can see trips we’re planning under Upcoming trips below. 

And if you want to see recent blog posts, they’re at the bottom of the page, or click Blog in the menu to scroll through our posts by date or to search.
