Our story!

For several years now I have had the urge to travel which has been a dream of mine before marriage and children. My husband was never keen on the idea until one afternoon in 2016 he said, "let's do this!" The next day I began to sell, donate and give away items from my home. He was a bit shocked when he got home from work. I immediately called a realtor and our home sold within 24 hours for more than we were asking. I had sold, donated and given away EVERYTHING so that the day we moved we didn't even need a truck. We were able to drive away with everything we had left in both our vehicles. We moved to a smaller place directly across from the beach to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets for the following year before taking off to travel full time!

Planning the Route across USA 🇺🇸

My parents raised me up in 5 countries and 3 continents before the age of 10 so I have inherited a bit of experience with traveling. They traveled to see the world but as a kid my favorite part of traveling was to see family and friends. When I became an adult I always made vacation plans to spend time with my mother, my aunt and cousins and all my friends growing up. I continue to do the same thing even with our nomadic life to include all the same people plus now my kids, grandkids, siblings and our 100 nieces and nephews in our family. 

Most people plan a destination they want to explore and we do that as well but it is the secondary goal of our travels. I wanted to visit Niagra Falls so my niece and nephew planned it all and took us. Perfect! My youngest daughter wanted to join us in Europe so we visited our usual places in Portugal and Spain but also visited Paris for her birthday. Most of the beautiful places we venture out to see are because we plan with family and friends who join us or because someone we are visiting wants to show us something spectacular in their area. It's better than getting a tour guide!

That is how we discovered Letchworth State Park in Upstate New York! I planned a trip to visit one of my dearest friends since I was 21 years old. She and her husband live in a small town outside of Rochester and they took us to this beautiful place for a day outing. We fell in love with the area and made that one of our stops to camp each time we are in the area. The places that we have enjoyed the most since we have been traveling has happened just like that - the locals definitely know all the BEST places to see!
