“What was it like?”
That was what everyone asked us after we returned from an incredible 12-week adventure to the Asia-Pacific region. The repetition of this one question got us to thinking about what people want to know about travel.
There are countless Web sites and guide books that can help answer many important travel questions: “What’s interesting to see and do? Where are the best places to eat? How do I get around once I’m there?”
What we felt we could offer was something different—creative stories that provide aspiring and fellow travelers a window on the world and a sense of place. Think of this as a series of postcards. Each tale will give you an impression, a reflection or an amusing perspective about a destination with just a photo and a few short paragraphs.
As we answer the question, “What was it like?” for this and other journeys, we hope our stories will spark your curiosity and entice you to start planning an adventure of your own.
Be forewarned, the travel bug can be addictive, but oh, so much fun! The two of us were bitten at the very beginning of our marriage when we chose to have a small wedding and a big honeymoon. That 10-week adventure took us throughout western Europe. Thirty-three years later, we’ve visited 20 countries and 38 American states. Every new destination is a chance to immerse ourselves in another culture and an opportunity to share our experiences through our writing and photographs.
When we’re not traveling, Doug is often found perfecting his craft of making gourmet truffles and MacKenzie works equally as hard perfecting her craft as a taste tester. (Someone has to do it.)
