It's all about
We’ve reached a decision. When it comes to gifts exchanged between us, Carla and I want experiences. We don’t need any more possessions. We want memories.
Carla is Carla Shryock, my wife, co-conspirator and fellow contributor to this blog. We’ve lived in some beautiful places up and down the west coast of the United States. We’ve also seen some pretty amazing things. And we’re both writers by trade, which makes the idea of writing about travel and destinations especially appealing to us.
Not that we’re on the road all the time. That’s far from the truth. We spend most of our time at home in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Those familiar with Oregon know this is a great place to live. There’s plenty to do here, especially if you like to get outside.
When we are on the go, we look to Europe. We visited six countries to date and have plans see much more. Our tours are self-planned, self-guided and designed to include both the famous landmarks and the out-of-the-way places that don’t show up in any guide book. How else can you explain seeing the Tower of London and an amateur cricket match in Conwy, North Wales in same trip.
When not travelling ourselves, we’ll be scanning the digital universe for valuable information when like to pass on. We hope this blog helps others make their own memories.
