MouseMap for Travel Stories

A few years ago, I wrote a travel article a day.  That was a bit much, and even though I wrote them I didn't always get them put up here.  Just for historical reference you can see what I wrote.

We hope our Site Map for Travel Stories has helped you find a destination.... one that you might want to visit.

Happy travels... even if you don't travel the world... just remember that life is a journey... embrace and enjoy it! Judy and Mark

Timely Tips

Summer Vacation
Travel is fun in the Northern summer... but don't neglect the Southern Hemisphere at this time of year.
Yes, it's winter in South Africa, but that's their dry season. It's a good time to travel there.

Lions stop traffic in Kruger NP South Africa

Sometimes you need to watch rain patterns instead of just seasons to figure the best time to travel...

We're taking a Brazilian Safari this year. It's 10 years since that story. The Pantanal is dry June to October ... a good time to go.

Whether you're taking a road trip close to home or traveling abroad...
whether it's summer or winter in your part of the world...
the way you pack can make it all more pleasurable.
