I’ve been excited about doing an UnCruise in Hawaii for a long time and we’ve finally completed our sailing from the Big Island to Molokai. It was incredible and I am excited to share just what made it so special and unique. We travel to Hawaii a lot (more frequently than we ever expected) so getting to see the Islands from a different perspective doing UnCruise Hawaii was awesome and gave us a completely new set of stories and experiences to share. I don’t just want to gush about how wonderful the boat and crew were, but I want to share what made small ship sailing in Hawaii such an unusual ..read more

One of my favorite parts of being a blogger is getting to go out into the world and explore, capturing beautiful photographs as I go. The bulk of my job though comes in the writing and web publishing side of things. I love getting to speak with other creative professionals about what they do and why, so getting to sit down with a professional landscape photographer was eye-opening for me. Colleen Miniuk is an award winning professional landscape photographer and author, but that wasn’t always her career. Her primary job is being my friend. Kidding, but she is a marvelous person in addition to ..read more

I go to New York City every year and usually visit alone, but I’m NEVER doing that again. Doing NYC with a pre-teen is actually one of the most fun travel experiences I’ve had.

Not all of us love the great outdoors, and not all of us love sleeping in it. Glamourous Camping, aka Glamping, has become a trend over the last few years for those who want to get in touch with their internal nature lover but also want a little more luxury than a sleeping bag and tent. We have camped all over the country and stayed in everything from tents to Campervans. One of the places with the most options when it comes to camping or glamping is Maine. It’s the perfect place for an adventure with rocky coastlines and fantastic mountain views, and glamping is a great compromise if you lov ..read more
