My love for traveling started at a young age. Maybe it’s because I moved a lot as a child and was never in one place for too long. Or maybe it’s because I went to college far from home and by default traveled to and from college every summer, stopping along the way to visit National Parks.
Whatever the reason, I became a traveler. My first international (if you can call it that) trip was to Cancun, Mexico, for spring break in college. Shortly after I graduated college, I started dating a man from England, and so my first authentic international trip was with him to Britain, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. We continued my love for traveling by purchasing a 1968 VW Camper Bus. We would take trips with our two dogs to Utah, Colorado, Nevada, and Northern California. I guess you could say we were hippy-ish.
Later when I returned home (Maryland), my love for traveling continued as I yearned to go back west. Maryland was full of traffic, cars, and pavement. I wanted peace. I wanted to go “home” to Colorado. I didn’t travel for quite a while until I got a “real” job and became independent.
I always had a love for animals and as such, most of my trips revolve around seeing unique wildlife and experiencing calmness. My trips do not involve lengthy visits to cities to see architecture or fancy churches. I want to get out of the city and into the peace. I want to enjoy nature.

Our last trip in February 2021 included Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama. We chose the South because of less restrictions and the… Read more
Every year I get together with friends and do a canoe trip down the Patuxent River in Maryland. It’s always a lot of fun and while we encounter downed trees along the way that require some maneuvering, it’s these obstacles that create the memories. Every year we wonder if that huge tree will still be… Read more
