Hi, I am Shelley, editor, travel writer, photojournalist, storyteller, chef, and incurable globetrotter.
“Traveling is much more than just site-seeing. It’s about discovery and experiencing new places, sounds, cultures, cuisines, and libations. Sometimes where you travel to is the main purpose for your visit, but more times than not, it is only part of the experience.”
Hi, I’m Melissa, a freelance travel writer and photographer with a severe case of wanderlust!
I love experiencing a place through the lens of my camera first, then add the words to tell their story.

Hi , I’m Robin Dohrn-Simpson
By the time I was out of high school I had been to almost all of the states in the USA. I picked up the last few, and 75 countries being a travel agent and tour operator for 26 years. I’m filled with wanderlust. I always want to see what is around the corner, behind the door, across the ocean. Travel is in my blood. It is my lifeline. It is a part of my soul.
