Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Wendy and I love to travel and share. I created this a blog to help people connect, chat and share their experiences and as we learn travel tips together.
I have been traveling my whole life! I have visited over 36 countries and I’m still counting. I have had 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, Scotland, Albania and Denmark to name a few. I will also be hiking in Italy and trekking through parts of France too!
I am designing a travel tour company that focuses on promoting small tourism businesses around the world. I hope to connect small 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 for my new local page if you are in the southern U.S. I also have separate Facebook group ~ Huntsville Daytrippers if you are located in the area. 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 authentic travel experiences throughout Europe as we share, chat and grow. Please feel free to CONTACT me with your suggestions and insights. I eagerly await your input.
