Tip for Lone Women Travelling

by Sarah
(Texas)


One of the best tips I have for any woman travelling alone--whether you stay on a higher floor in the hotel or not--take an old-fashioned, triangle shaped, rubber door stop!!


When you are in your room you can place it under your door and even if you have pulled the latch over the lock this will help keep intruders out! The harder they push on the door the more it grabs on to the pile of the carpet (no wood or screws to break out of a door jam).

Hope this helps and have safe travels!!! SARAH

Covid-19 Continues

2020 presents a travel year like no other.  Mostly we have been sheltering in place.

Domestic driving trips, visits to state or national parks are all most of us can accomplish... but we'll give our fall tips so you can be dreaming of future vacations!

Shoulder Season
We love travel during shoulder seasons.
September, October, November...

They're all great for travel somewhere!

Spring is greening things up in the Southern Hemisphere.
