Everyone has a running to do list, but creating a ‘big picture’ list of life-time goals is a separate list – one that takes years, and sometimes an entire life time, to achieve. I share my long-term list publicly to help inspire others and also track the goals that I have achieved already.
As someone who travels for short stints across the border or locally, it’s not hard to believe that we have a separate travel/go bag for our short getaways (more on the detailed contents of our go bag here). I recently decided that my bathroom essentials could use a little more organization and DIYed it.
I just spent three days in one of the most beautiful Provincial Parks in North America. Algonquin is simply pristine, with an abundance of nature and wildlife (though we didn't personally see any large wildlife). Very little written content this week because a picture is worth 1000 words - I hope these few speak to you.
Last weekend, Dan and I stayed at The Pinery overnight for some R&R and outdoorsy time. This was our third trip to this location (my fourth), which is about 2 hours from home, and is a park that we enjoy every time we go. People generally associate camping with kids/families/budget travel options, but camping offers more than that – it is time outdoors, being active via hiking/swimming/canoeing/etc., while ideally disconnecting from the busy world at home (minimal phone/Wi-Fi use) and just enjoying the scenery and the company. AND it can be quite fun – even for childless adults like us!
Post #101 and thanks for the last two years of reading my posts! This week I would like to share more about the activities we signed up for on-site at Glendorn. You may have seen a few of my pictures from our Glendorn getaway last week (if you didn’t, you should check ‘em out), so this week, I’m highlighting the fun experiences we had with Jim and Charles learning about shooting, as well as fly fishing!
I did it again. I spent my week traveling and taking photos instead of writing a blog post. Shame on me right? Well, here's a few highlights from our trip to The Lodge at Glendorn in Bradford, Pennsylvania this past week. The experience was AMAZING! All wanderlusters need to add Glendorn to their bucket list - a truly special place in the middle of Allegheny National Forest. More on what we did at Glendorn to come in next week's post...
Dan and I had the pleasure of visiting Stratford last weekend and it was a weekend of R&R that we both appreciated. Here are a few of the highlights…
It’s been a while since I wrote a resource post, so here’s one that anyone who loves travel should take a peek at. Below are 5 travel blogs that I follow and why I follow them. This is not a sponsored list, just an introduction to a few fellow wanderlusters who I hope will inspire you too. There are several others out there that are also worth a look (links below).
