They call me The Breeze. Actually they don’t, but I’d be okay with that if they did because I’m ready to go wherever the wind takes me (except Disney World).
Back roads, ghost towns, pristine beaches, historical sites, national parks and anyplace ancient or nostalgic are my main interests – preferably at a good price. I prefer to travel by bike, kayak, or on foot and deluxe camping sounds like heaven to me.
I’ve lived up and down the east coast from New England to Key West, did a little time in the mid-west (that’s what it felt like anyway) and have been living for the past 7 years on Maui where I finally feel like digging my feet into the sand – and calling it home.
Having lived in many vacation destinations, I’ve learned that many people visit these places but don’t really soak up the best juices. Hopefully this will be the blog people drag their bread through before they head out!
Growing up, there were two things that interested me - travel and photography. Straight out of high school I enrolled in a Travel Agent training program and soon afterward landed a job as a travel agent 1500 miles away. Years later I enrolled in and graduated from the New York Institute of Photography and this blog is where those two paths meet.
For many years I owned and ran small businesses with my husband (a couple of restaurants, a book store, a retail shop and a photography business) so I have an affinity for the Mom and Pop’s. In my travels, I’ll search these out and introduce you to the ones that strike a chord. My experience from the few articles that were written about my businesses has proven to me that you really can’t believe everything you read. Although I was very grateful for the exposure they gave me, I was also astonished at the inaccuracies that made it into print. Having been on the other side of the interview, I’ll take extra measures to make sure that I don’t make those same mistakes.
So, if you’re looking for a fun-loving travel writer/photographer – pick me!
