So — what is this web site all about?
Travel. Self-discovery. Bucket list exploration. Fun!
I’m a colon cancer survivor, an empty-nester, and now an early retiree! When folks start talking about generations, I’m on the cusp between the Baby Boomers and Generation X — and I have a foot in both camps 🙂 .
What kind of travel will you find here?
A mixture intermediate and luxury travel styles. This means being able to have amazing experiences AND being able to travel more often.
Sometimes this means staying at a pensione or a bed and breakfast for a couple of nights, and then splurging on high-end hotels on other nights — all on one trip. This can drop the average price per night on a trip in a sometimes miraculous way. Sometimes it might mean finding an amazing apartment, taking cooking lessons, and then trying the recipes yourself.
Locations? Travels in the USA, Europe, the Caribbean, and now Africa. Kinds of travel? Land and sea — yes, I love a good cruise! Where are we going next? Where our dreams take us!

Who is Ann?
I am a sixth generation Texan, named for a multi-great grandmother who arrived in Texas in 1836 weeks before the battle at the Alamo. I grew up in Mississippi and New Orleans, have lived in both Seattle and Manhattan, and finally moved back to Texas in 1990’s.
I have a darling teenage daughter who started university in the fall of 2017. I have been divorced and am now widowed. Finally, I am a colon cancer survivor.
My career has been in higher education, where I worked for over twenty-five years in many capacities, including teaching courses in writing, web-related topics, and managing academic departments. I am now writing and traveling full time — what a wonderful thing!
I love to travel — whether it’s with my daughter, my sister, or friends — or by myself. Solo travel is very freeing — and I always meet interesting people. So far my journeys have taken me to four continents and thirty-five countries.
