Yep, it’s another travel blog. Why? Because I am a detailed-obsessed travel agency owner who thinks travel blogs should be honest, insightful, and valuable whether you’re visiting a place for the very first time or exploring beyond your usual hometown favorites. To that end, I’ll do my best and would love to receive comments and suggestions from you along the way.

Summer 2023: Grand Teton and Yellowstone

As summer 2023 comes to an end, I wanted to highlight our family vacation with the amazing G Adventures (@gadventures). During June, we joined their National Geographic Family Journey to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. It was a bucket list trip for sure. And traveling in a small group, led by two knowledgeable G Adventures guides (Chief Experience Officers, fondly referred to as CEOs), made it completely stress-free. For the first time EVER, I did not have to worry about our trip logistics! This was our best family vacation to date. And I look forward to our next vacation with G Adventures.
