The Christmas Train

The Christmas Train

Getting into the Christmas spirit!

THIS year though, she called me […]

Belize!  It’s unBELIZEable! ;)

I finally crossed Cave tubing off of my bucket list! While in Belize last month I had the pleasure of zip lining(again) and cave tubing with one of the funniest guides I have ever come across! Which is a very good thing because had he been a bad guide, I probably would not have enjoyed […]

3 Generations of Wandering – Day trip to Central CA Coast

One of my favorite things to do with my spare time is go on spontaneous road trips with my dad, daughter & dog.  My dad is the main person who sparked my wanderlust at a very young age and I have definitely passed along the “wonder of the world” to my child.

Scuba Diving in Roatan Honduras

Scuba Diving in Roatan Honduras

Our first stop out of the US on our most recent trip was in Roatan Honduras.  With only one day on the island, I knew I HAD  to scuba dive.  I had always heard the diving in Roatan was world class, so it was a no brainier to choose that activity while I was there.


Cozumel, Mexico

Cozumel, Mexico

While in Cozumel last week I had the experience of a lifetime!  Anyone who knows me, knows I am a HUGE animal lover and major “tree hugger”.  So when I learned we could be part of a team able to help local biologists & volunteers save baby sea tea turtles, I was ecstatic!!! We worked […]

“Where in the world have I been” you ask???

I have had quite a few people ask me where I have been so I thought it would be convenient if I just had it all written down in one place. 😉 I started traveling at a young age but as an adult, have gone through “spurts” of travel.  So my list is slow and […]
