Ever since I was a little girl I’ve had a fascination for tropical islands and beaches. I remember writing my first poem in elementary school and it was all about swaying palms and crystal blue water. I loved writing about “paradise” and was pretty darn good at it for such a young person. The principal of the school actually called me into his office with my mother one day to tell me he thought I had a real gift for writing. That meeting was a pleasant memory my whole life but until now I never really understood the serendipitous nature of the event.
Now, 40 something years later, I am finally fulfilling a lifelong passion to write about travel and my life in a coastal paradise. As I am currently putting my daughter through college and on a tight budget, I’m always on the lookout for deals on the most interesting new hotels, locations, and travel experiences in the world, as well as in my own backyard. Most will be sea or water-based trips, but some land-based ones will also be included. I will write about my own personal travel experiences as well as places on my radar that I’ve researched or am dreaming about. My lifestyle articles will be about coastal decorating, food, and fashion for the free-spirited woman on a budget.
And away we go….
