What people are saying about this travel blog

I often receive compliments about the info here. Once in a while I come across them in my emails or someone sends me a note, so I’ve decided to share a few here.

Hi Deb, I just posted a comment on the Atlas Obscura part. Thanks again for all the tips you gave me in the early evening/post dinner at the Mensa RG after your presentation to us! It was great meeting and conversing with you!
I enjoyed too your travel tips and theft prevention tips. I’m sure they will save someone lots of grief!

Thanks for your tips and insight through your travels. As a former airline employee, I did quite a bit of solo travelling. Getting there is also part of the adventure. Experiencing the local culture is my preference. I look forward to reading more of your tales and putting them to use!!

Wow, your blog is awesome! I’ve been reading it all morning.

It’s a lot of info, and your writing style is easy and fun to read. I’m learning a lot.

Thank you!

Wow Deb,

Thanks so much for your advice.

And I started reading your blog and intend to basically read all of it because we seem to share a similar storyline. Maybe I should commit to reading everything, I don’t exactly know yet how much you’ve got there!

Rick had given up his apartment lease and arranged his job so he could travel. He sought advice to get going.

It looks like you have visited almost everywhere. It is nice to see you on the group again.

Philipp is a travel-oriented man.

Just to congratulate you on an incredible site. It’s going to inspire others to follow in your footsteps. Or certainly make them wish they had the chutzpah to get up and go as you did. You don’t hear it but I am silently applauding from LA.

Wow, girl, you sure get around. You are amazing: I love how you have made a good life for yourself as an independent woman of limited means.
