Despite spending all of my childhood in the Chicago suburbs, I found my adult self still living in the same area, mostly to be close to family. It suited me fine, for the most part, until a trip to Yosemite National Park in 2006 changed me. Traveling suddenly became a passion. Wanting to share my love of the places I’ve visited, I started reviewing on Tripadvisor, but that wasn’t the right forum to allow me to express my opinions adequately. So here we are…
I’m a mother of two daughters and a tireless supporter of my hard-working husband. I want this blog to be of use to people, to provide reviews, tips, and suggestions, instead of reading like a travel magazine. Most of us cannot travel the world in luxury and may never see the other hemisphere. But for the world we can see, maybe I can just make someone else’s vacation a little smarter, a little easier, and a whole lot more fun.
