Welcome! 'Get going and go well' is more than a motto, it's a mission. Traveling well takes practice and changes as we do. To travel well is to be conscious of the impact and privilege of adventure, taking care of the places we love to visit, and connecting with those who call those places home. This blog is deep with stories, tips, and reviews from decades of travel. Come back often!
