Welcome!

We are empty-nesters loving the time we have now for travel adventures. We love wildlife, photography, and active travel – on bike or on foot. We sprinkle in a bit of luxury travel when we’re able to and 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 now on sustainable travel practices and destinations.

We enjoy researching a trip as much as we do the journey itself. But despite the planning, we know that the most important items on our packing list are flexibility and a sense of humor.

Through this blog, we hope to inspire you to achieve your bucket list dreams while preserving this incredible world for our grandchildren.
