Ecuador is absolutely one of the most beautiful countries in the world we live in. It is set on the equator, and it is home to breathtakingly beautiful snow-covered volcano’s, luxuriant jungles and best of all, most friendly, welcoming people. Its also a very special place to spend some time trekking thru the lush, steamy Jungles. Being on the equator, it can be visited all year round but its many different micro-climates mean that you’ll need careful advice from destination experts. Many of the residents of Ecuador, who are professional Tour Guides, can answer questions on history, geography, tourism, culture and business climate, visas, transportation, Galapagos cruises and tours, accommodation, Indian markets, cultural tours, amazon expedition and lodges, adventure tours, best time to travel to Ecuador, tourist attractions, worth to see places and offer tips so you can enjoy your time there and not miss anything! You will be able see first hand just like it is in the eyes of 1st world citizen! Dont miss out on visiting on whats called “The Most Beautiful City In South America!”

Love to explore this beautiful United States that we’re so lucky to call home? I just came across this quote on line a few days ago… “The World Is A Book, And Those Who Do Not Travel, Read Only One Page” ~ Saint Augustine. How fitting and true! With 2017 just a day away, Id like to bring to all my fellow travelers, for the New Year, a place that I personally have never ventured to, here in the US, but I think you might enjoy exploring for yourself. And I hope to get there this coming year and will share my photos! Its not your typical “Tourists” destinations like Disney World, NYC, the Grand Canyon, ect. Its a place that most probably haven’t heard of, and if you have, you will definitely agree with me that its a magical, beautiful part of the world that is still untouched by big “Commercial” attractions. Its nature at its most beauty surrounded by the majestic Olympic Mountains. We’re talking about Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula. Its an area that has a million acres of wilderness, which is known that no other place in the US can match its diversity in terrain, mountains, coastlines and rain forests. By exploring the Olympic National Park, which sprawls across several different ecosystems, from the dramatic peaks of the Olympic Mountains to old-growth forests, just on its alone, you will be struct by its beauty. Like I said, its definitely on my Bucket List for this coming year & Ill ask if you do have your own experience of traveling there & would like to share your memories/photos, please do!

For more information on Olympic National Park, and all it has to offer for a great place to explore, check out the link below. And keep your eyes posted for more awesome places to venture off to in my next Blog in Jan! Happy New Year Travelers!

When traveling the world, I usually find Travel Books to read up on, search online for places to visit, even find episodes of Rick Steves in order to find places that are not typical to travelers. The “Hot Spots” / “Landmarks” are something to visit for sure, like The Colosseum in #Rome, Buckingham Palace in #London, Central Park in #NYC, ect but I’m also a fan of small hidden Villages. One amazing city that I traveled to in 2015 was Dublin, #Ireland and while there I found a few hidden jems as well. Westport, Strandhill, (Which is known for surfing) and Enniskerry, which has the beautiful Powerscourt Waterfall, which is said to be the highest waterfall in Ireland, just to point out a few. In my search, I recently came alone this article pointing out a handful of beautiful, charming European Villages that I’m putting on my list for 2017. Take a look, you’ll probably be drawn in as well!

Awwww, San Francisco, the beautiful “City By The Bay” It certainly has its own personality, with hundreds of fabulous Restaurants to choose from, its a Tourists haven. Between the hippie chic of the Upper Height to the hipster grit of the Mission District, as well as the Marina district, which boasts trendy bistros and postcard-perfect views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Located in picturesque Northern California, it’s a hilly city on the tip of a peninsula surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. Even though San Francisco will have many of the traditional events of the holiday season, tree lightings, concerts, and one of our favorites, the Soli Deo Gloria concerts, Sat, Dec. 3rd 2016 at 4pm at Christ Episcopal, Alameda and Sunday, Dec. 4th 2016 at 3:30pm at Grace Lutheran, Palo Alto, theres also many other events. So if you’re looking for something a little different this year, there are plenty of options. Here are 10 fun holiday ideas that break with tradition:

The four of us, piling into our SUV, craving the magic of Fall and the beauty of #Autumn colors, agreed that New England was the place to go. It was a 6 hour ride for us, but as friends for many (many) many years ; ) we knew it would be a blast no matter what. According to all sources, it was “PEAK” time to head up there, which was mid October, and did we ever time it right. I have headed out in the past where we hoped for the same, but was disappointed. Not this time. We chose to make our first stop in Burlington, VT before heading to #Stowe. Burlington is a beautiful town, located 45 miles south of the #Canada–United States border and 94 miles south of #Montreal. Its the perfect blend of old New England charm, arts, culture and nature. During our time there it was bustling with “leaf peepers” who come to view the vibrant autumn colors as well. Its no secret and every year the attraction to VT doesn’t disappoint at all. (Its our 4th year in a row.) We had fun walking along the 4 block, brick tiled, smoke free environment. We came across the spectacular waterfront of Lake Champlain and grabbed a picnic table and had lunch, and a few cold beers! The second day we were in the quaint little village of Stowe. Being avid skiers, were here mostly in the winter, where it truly transforms into a Winter wonderland. But in October, its still a wonderful, picturesque town to hike and take in Mother Natures beauty. We walked for hours and came across one of the most beautiful Waterfalls I have ever seen, Honey Hollow Falls. What I loved about this particular Falls is that its not well known and we practically had the Falls to ourselves. Not very crowded at all. We also had a treat at the Stowe #Theater Guild. They really did a great job. It was a Perfect night out to complement our day in Stowe. As we enter into the Holiday Season of 2016, and prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving/Christmas with our loved ones, in the back of my mind I’m already thinking about next Fall, 2017, mainly because its my favorite time of year, and am sooo looking forward to my next Fall #adventure with my “crew”. Hopefully I gave you all a few ideas. I love hearing from other Travelers as well on personal notes along with their experiences. Its more personal & insightful with small hidden treasures! Love and Peace to all!

Visiting New York City is a dream of millions of people. Some of us are lucky enough to live here. But be warned, there is a list of places in #NYC that you probably dont realize have frequent visitors, which only a few have seen….Ghosts, and theyre not shy. New Yorkers talk about their run-ins with the afterlife and firsthand encounters with #poltergeists in the City. We’re told that ghosts haunt mostly NYC’s old buildings, parks, and of course #cemeteries. Im still experimenting with the “Haunted Bars” scene, which, as of today, I haven’t had an encounter.  But Im having a blast exploring! ~ We did have a paranormal experience while in a Bar in #Savannah, GA, which Ill save for another blog!

To read more on “Haunted NY” read the article below.

We ALL love our Pets, they’re considered our “Best Friends / Family”. And just like traveling with a small child, it can be a wonderful and bonding experience or a not so pleasant one. Its all in the planning! One great tip I got from my neighbor was, if you’re planning on a long drive for instance, before you actually take that Road Trip, is to take a trial run to see how your pet responds. Does he get car sick? Anxious? Its a really good idea to find this out first, believe me! Not all pets are good with traveling. Could be because of age or they’re just too excited. Below you can read up more about traveling with your pet and  the article also offers the tips to help you prepare for a safe and smooth trip, as well as the steps you can take to make traveling a pleasant experience, for both you & your pet!
