Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Wendy and I love to travel and share. I created this blog to help people connect, chat, and share their experiences, and as we learn travel tips together.
I have been traveling my whole life! Having visited over 36 countries, I’m still counting. It has been such a ball! I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Management and Travel & Tourism from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI. I’m so old our mascot was a griffin, now it’s Willie the Wildcat. Still proud of my alma mater.
This blog will be a collection of travel resources, local reviews, and tips, hiking (because we love to hike) spots and conversations. On each of the pages, you’ll have an opportunity to comment to help others and sometimes help me amend a blog with more details.
This year I will be traveling to France, Italy, Spain, America, and Scotland. I will also be hiking in Italy and trekking through parts of France too!
My travel company focuses on promoting small tourism and hospitality businesses around the world. My dream is to help connect businesses with individuals. I feel this type of tourism is in jeopardy of extinction. I am all about human connection and authentic experiences. Want to know more?
Remember to use the SEARCH BAR on the website or the BLOGS by COUNTRY if you are searching for a particular destination. I will be on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube… for up-to-the-moment information.
In my blog, I will also concentrate on helpful tips and information for businesses, activities, restaurant reviews and fests. I hope this page provides as much information as possible on “what’s happening” in our local Stuttgart and Baden-Württemberg area. I have a Welcome to Germany page as well.
We have several fests(festivals) a year beginning in February with Fasching and Fastnet. We end the year with Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas) markets. I will have information referencing what, when, where and what you should expect for all the activities of around Germany and more.
As of 2019, I have relocated to Huntsville, Alabama. Check out my new local page on FaceBOOK if you are in the southern U.S. It’s a private page so I’ll have to invite you. Stay tuned for new and exciting American Destinations coming in 2020.
We love hiking. Especially my daughter, Katy, and I. Germany is plush with hiking trails that are easily marked, beautifully cared for, and usually ends with a “food and beer hut” somewhere on the trail. What’s not to love? We have discovered many trails in the Black Forest and SwabianAlb. On this page, I will share sites I use to trek the trails and my take on a particular trail as well as coordinates, skill level, and trail information.
I’m hoping hikers and trekkers will hop on this page and share their favorite trails too. How about it, do you have a favorite hike in your pocket, you would like to share?
Last but not least I hope you will come travel with me and together we will discover and explore authentic experiences around the world as we share, chat and grow. Please feel free to CONTACT me with your suggestions and insights. I eagerly await your input.
