COVID slowed us down for a couple of years, and now a few health issues challenge us. We're still traveling if not writing about it quite so much. Our goal in 2022 was get to all seven continents in one year... and we did it.
Going forward health issues may not allow us to travel. No one can take away those memories though. We hope all of you are well and staying safe... and that you find some inspiration here for YOUR future travels.
Mouse Travel Stories is a place for you to share YOUR travel stories with us, your friends and the world!
Read stories from others here. They're just below the submission box. You can comment on their stories too.
We've included a few of our own travel stories...
Not ones to tell you about passports, visas, health or packing tips...
Here you'll find some of our travel adventures that don't fit into a convenient category.
So scroll on down, read our stories and those of some of our readers and fellow travelers. Let them inspire you and give you tips.
When you're home from your trip, please come back to this page and share your story here...
If you're ready to share your story now, click here. It's easy, and we'll love to read it!
We've talked about custom tours and how to set them up, and we've given hints that our favorite travel style is no tour at all....
We think sometimes wandering with no set itinerary makes for the best travel of all.... and sometimes the funny or poignant experiences you have from that make for great memories. Stories like travels with the monkey or being touched by a gorilla......
We love having the flexibility that this kind of travel gives you.... you can be spontaneous.... take advantage of new friendships or great little cities or beaches you find.
We'll tell you some of the funny or poignant things that have happened to us through our years of travel. You've read some of them like Mark finding the old McEwen Castle in Scotland. Now we want to hear yours too.
Each year we try to write a retrospective of our travels for our friends and
family. If you're reading our site and enjoying it, we consider you
part of our cyber family... so see our retrospectives for 2007 Travels and years beyond so you can see what we were up to and where we went.
Here are a couple of other stories:
Dental Offices Around The World
If you have a Scotland or Clan MacEwan story, we have a special page for that...
And we have another page for sharing funny road signs.
Everyone has funny travel stories.... tales of things outside the normal travel stuff, things you didn't think would happen on your trip... funny things, weird things.
We love sharing our travel stories with you, and we'd like to have you share your stories with us and our readers. We have a really easy way for you to do that, and we'd love to read them.
So, have we got you ready to write your own story and share it with us?
It's easy... no code to write, just plain English (since that's what
I'm fluent in)... include a picture if you want and we'll put your story
here. Remembering those stories gets the travel juices flowing and
gets you dreaming about the next trip. Add your story to our Mouse
Travel Stories..... Here's to dreaming.
Go on... it's easy..

Yes, it's winter in South Africa, but that's their dry season. It's a good time to travel there.
Sometimes you need to watch rain patterns instead of just seasons to figure the best time to travel...
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.
