Call it wanderlust, vagabondism, or just a simple desire to see the world, I've always had a passion for travel. I've been to four continents, and 46 (as of February 21, 2018) of the fifty US states. Travel has made my mind flexible to new ideas and ways of doing things, and has allowed me to hear different perspectives. Sure, everyone knows that travel opens our eyes and ears to novel things and ideas. But what is often not mentioned as a benefit of travel is what it does to our soul. By opening our eyes, ears and minds, we can also open our hearts to other cultures and people. Maybe it's time for some of that now in our own culture. 


So sit back, enjoy the view, and share in my passion for travel as we journey through this life. And be sure to subscribe below, so you'll receive an email when we post something new!

I recently wrote about my hiking trip through the Point Reyes National Seashore, with a hint that there was more to be revealed. Well, here is the second installment about my dreamy drive (in a Mustang convertible of course) through California on my way to and from the...

Some people would say the very last thing they would want to do on vacation is sleep on the ground. In a tent. In the great outdoors. But so many aspects of that type of experience cannot be replicated or simulated in any way, and that's why I spent a week on a Si...

Welcome to the desert!

After our magnificent journeys in Utah around Zion and Bryce National Parks, we headed back down to Las Vegas to meet up with our Road Scholar trip group. The juxtaposition of the peace and solitude we experienced in the parks and the glitz and ga...

The history books and Wikipedia will say that Utah is the 45th state, and that is true. But for me, on February 21, 2018, Utah became the 46th state in my quest to visit all 50 states!  Originally we had planned only to attend a Road Scholar trip to Death Valley and th...

You may have noticed the rather substantial gaps in our postings here, and it's high time we let everyone know what's happened during that hiatus. We've been building a net-zero energy house on an amazing piece of land in the Berkshires of Massachusetts!

This past weekend provided an opportunity to return to a site that every kid in Massachusetts (including me), had to visit in elementary school: Concord, MA of "shot heard round the

world" fame. But this trip to Concord had lots of advantages over that last one. First o...

Having fully recovered from the nauseating trip to the US from Nova Scotia, we arrived on Cape Cod last week and had a few days' rest. We were itching to get back on our bikes, so we decided to hit the Cape Cod Rail Trail again. Only this time, we decided to go to Chat...

Not being connected to trustworthy or fast internet has its advantages. We don't hear all the ridiculous political commentary and activities from home. We get to experience our surroundings without distractions and enjoy nature. But, there are obvious disadvantages, to...

A funny thing happened on the way to our campground. The exit we took off the Trans-Canada Highway to get to the site showed one way for Ohio and the other for Shelburne. We thought it was only fitting that our last destination in Canada would show the options we faced...

We departed Halifax late in the afternoon and drove to our campsite in Lunenburg, which is a UNESCO heritage site on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. The campground where we stayed is actually part of the Lunenburg Board of Trade Visitor’s Center which sits atop a hill overl...
