Travel insurance claims

For the last 16 years I’ve been creating holiday wrap up videos in place of sending holiday cards. This is one tradition I’ve been able to keep up since I started traveling in 2006. It’s great to have all of my year in review travel videos all in the same place! Each year I have […]

How do you go to a popular tourist site, but not feel like a tourist? It’s really a challenge at times, especially since I really dislike crowds and ‘over-populated’ tourist sites. This makes being a travel blogger a bit difficult at times. When my Wild Atlantic Way road trip itinerary took me to the uber-touristy […]

My Year in Review and Holiday Greetings

holiday 2018

Happy Holidays! I can’t believe it’s my 12th year of doing these holiday videos!  I’m not a video person mainly because I hate editing videos.  It takes me a full 10 to 12-hour day to get this video done.  So every year I don’t think I’ll make the video and then tradition (and guilt) wins […]

Everyone has a story…and my job is finding them and sharing them. My goal is to inspire more people to get out and be curious about the world and find their own stories and epic adventures.

I heard myself let out an audible gasp as my whole body tensed up.  My eyes were targeted on the small figure scurrying up 30 feet over 8 levels of people to the top of the narrow tower. I was nervous for her, for everyone; yet I had to remind myself that this was an […]

The Best of the Wurst and the History of the German Bratwurst

February 25, 2016 6 Comments »

I drove into the little hamlet of Holzhausen Germany, nestled in the rolling hills and blanketed in morning fog; it seemed like a German fairy tale. Everything and every person were rather precise, reserved, serious, and orderly in the little German town, just as one would expect. However on the outskirts of Holzhausen there lived […]

German Christmas Ornaments

You put them on your tree every year, but have you ever wondered – why? Why do we hang glass balls on a tree – it’s really kind of strange if you think about it. Yet we do it all around the world, year after year, after year. I’m often fascinated with how things became […]

Things to do in Pyrenees

What are we going to do today? Someone in our group asks.“Eat, drink, and enjoy life,” came the reply. We all smile because we know it’s true. Travel in Catalonia, specifically the Spanish Pyrenees and Costa Brava, is about enjoying simple pleasures. And they have pleasure in abundance; there’s so much of it that I […]

What It’s Like to Be an Indy 500 VIP

We all pulled the chairs up close gathering around our stereo cabinet. My dad was ready; he had his number 2 pencil and yellow legal notepad.  He was meticulously filling each line with a number – 1 through 200 representing each lap. In the late 1970’s, this is what we considered family time, all sitting […]
