Lana’i Part 1 – getting there, Hotel Lana’i and the town

read

I’m starting to second guess posting this during February. Goodness, these colours are surreal in contrast to all the shades of grey going on here at home right now! However, I’ve been asked some questions on my travel to the Hawaiian islands lately, and in particular, on my visit to Lana’i. So thanks to digging […]

Road to Hana Day 2 – our Entabeni Cottage stay in the jungle

read

We interrupt this regularly scheduled full-throttle Christmas season with a quick (not really) blurb from the beautiful and vibrant area of Hana, in Maui, Hawaii! How’s my timing?  Truth be told, I know many of you love to read about these adventures, in which a few of you have even booked your trips based on some of these […]

The spectacular Road To Hana trip with tips – day 1

read

So… I plan a quiet trip to Maui, and thinking it will be a little too quiet, include a new-to-me romp over to Lana’i for a new adventure. That part’s coming soon. It’s a GOOD ONE. However, what actually transpired once I got here was so vastly different, I would have only labeled it dream material. My […]

Aloha! It feels so good to be writing again! If you wish to follow my adventures to the minute, I’ve been sharing on Instagram HERE.

Alexandria Bridge and surprise junkin’! One of my VERY fav things to do in the whole wide world when traveling is to come upon new discoveries myself without having read about them first. And such was the case when I went on an adventure in search of my bucket list must-see, the old Alexandria Bridge. It’s […]

Inspired by my tranquil Othello cabin riverfront getaway

read

Happy summer, friends! How is your summer shaping up? Thought I’d share a little of my small town travel I’ve been doing of late in beautiful Hope, British Columbia, Canada! I’ll be completely honest… once I returned from my much needed little extended getaway, I wasn’t sure where my mind was. It was stuck somewhere […]

Longer.

Thank-you friends, for your heartfelt messages you left in the last post. So, as you know, I dashed off to the mountains for a short little getaway. I needed this like you have no idea. And staying in a place you don’t even really desire to leave just to keep yourself busy is such a […]

A trip to a spectacular tulip festival in Abbotsford, BC

read

Every single year I read the notice… “Tulip Festival! Buy your tickets online to guarantee entry!” And every year, I’d drive down the highway, attempting to spot the fields from a distance, to gauge if the visit would be worth it. But I never did spot the fields. So I never did go. However, this […]
