I’m Amy of the Traveling Tulls. Dave and I are empty-nesters loving the time we have now for travel adventures. We love photography, wildlife travel, and exploring on bikes. We sprinkle in a bit of luxury travel when we feel it’s really worth it.

We’re learning to balance our love of travel with our commitment to living a green, responsible life. We’ve made changes in our lifestyle to offset our travel and focus on sustainable travel practices and destinations.

I hope this website inspires you to achieve your bucket list dreams while preserving this incredible world for our children and grandchildren.

New England, the northeast corner of the U.S., is an exceptional travel destination. Where else can you find history, culture & top sports teams, within a day’s drive from mountains to ski, or long stretches of beach to explore? I’ve lived of my life in New England so I may be biased 😉, but read more and decide for yourself!
