Our International Travel Tips
A Potpourri of Travel Tips
We've Lived It, Learn From Our Adventures

Don't all travel sites have international travel tips?  Yes they do... and we've read them too...  MouseTours started as a way for us to share... share our international travel tips and write about our travels. 

Well, the name MouseTours really started as a family joke; we've told you about that elsewhere... but the website is serious (mostly), and we think we have good tips for you.  The whole endeavor has grown out of our love of world travels, and it keeps on growing! 

It's a fun way to share our adventures....

....And it helps pay for them to thanks to SBI.

More of you are finding us and reading our travel tips every day...

...and we thank you for that.

We get a kick out of writing all of this...  We relive our trips, look at pictures again.

Updating and Adding Photos to Inspire You

Writing International Travel Tips for you

We still haven't gotten around to scanning our photos in from the pre-digital age, so we apologize that not all of the pages have the photos that we hope to get on them...

Still there is good information, so please bear with us as we continue to add more photos and update the pages.

So travel along with us. Laugh at our mistakes and learn from them.

It's like we said on our homepage...

We hope our travel adventures and the international travel tips we share will inspire you to take your dream trip.

Some of these tips will be philosophical too... that goes along with our motto on our footer....

We believe that travel promotes understanding and understanding promotes peace. We feel we are ambassadors when we travel.... and you will be too.

We'll try to keep the tips grouped in categories so you can find the international travel tips that you need at the moment.
