A little about us :-)

Maria & John

My husband John and I are very fortunate to be able to travel the world the way we do. My father in law passed away at the age of 54 and never left New York. John decided that he would try and travel as much as he can before time passes us by and who am I to stop him (lol) so here we go….

We have been to 74 countries on six continents and 36 states in North America, and we are just getting started. Some of the posts are out of date order I apologize in advance.

If you have any questions, comments or would like suggestions, please shoot me a message. Enjoy reading while we continue to explore this amazing world we live in.

New York State

John and I were both born and raised in New York, so this blog is mainly all pictures. If you have any questions or are looking for suggestions, please write to me, and I will be glad to go into details.

Montauk – The End of Long Island

Montauk is my absolute favorite place to visit. I can’t explain it but I just feel so great whenever we are there. Most people hear about the Hamptons but this is my go-to place. Unfortunately, it has become a popular vacation spot and it’s much busier.

Glider Ride over Long Island – September 14, 2012

We took a relaxed glider ride over beautiful Long Island. It was such a fun thing to do I would highly recommend everyone do it.
