Introducing our crew

This isn't a one-person site---it's a place to share stories, tips, travel experiences, and articles! We encourage writers, teachers, readers, and travelers to submit information for this site. Let's explore the world of great stories, insightful reviews, delicious food, interesting backstories, exotic locations, fun escapes, armchair adventures, and great learning experiences... together.   

Julie Davies

Julie has written and edited articles, books, policy manuals, marketing materials, curriculum, and newsletters for over 30 years. She was recently commissioned to write and teach a certification course on Short Term Rental Management at CSN and other colleges (after years of managing hotels, STRs, B&Bs, and senior care communities along with teaching about all areas of hospitality, tourism, senior care, and lodging management). She consults with and reviews travel and lodging businesses. Julie's joy is her daughters and grandchildren---she loves to read and travel with them, too.

Chris Davies

Chris loves to read, especially when he's sharing a book and mini-adventures with his grandsons. His favorite travel is with group tours, so he can relax and get to know the people as well as the travel destinations.

Alees Pabst

Alees' husband is an Air Force officer, so most of her travel has involved moving to new locations with their adorable boys. She is an accomplished personal coach, yoga instructor, songwriter, singer, personal trainer, and excels in photography (and motherhood). She's more of an "armchair traveler" who enjoys a well-written story and photographs that bring stories to life. She is skilled at creating homeschool learning adventures.

Bre Ellis

Bre has traveled around the world on dozens of adventures, and she's even lingered a while in some countries, immersing herself in the culture and making lasting friendships. Bre earned her Master's Degree in International Affairs and Global Enterprise. She also teaches group fitness classes, like Zumba. Bre has experienced some literature-inspired experiences. Her business, Beaded & Blessed, came from her desire to help a friend. Her study of traditions practiced by Indigenous Peoples inspired a beautiful way of creating wearable hugs for loved ones.
