White-sand beaches, fantastic snorkeling and diving sites, great food, unique culture, and warm people all make Okinawa a top must-see place in Japan.

If you’re pinching the pennies, then it’s well worth looking at – the prices are often far cheaper than the bigger chains, though names like Travelodge do have more central locations at a similar price.

How large is Samhain? Hoping my cat can be comfortable in the Delta sherpa as well for an unavoidable and long flight. I admit it – I’m in love with our little 13-ft vintage Shasta Travel Trailer. It’s the warm cozy adorable playhouse I dreamed about as a little girl.

Anyone who has flown has seen in-flight magazines. Usually, the standard is very high and though most of the in-flight magazines buy from freelancers, they prefer to work with writers who are already published. But I have an external hard drive that I save everything to, isn’t that enough? … Read more

Before You Go

Last summer we bought a 1994 Ford Econoline conversion van camper. We had outgrown our charming but cramped and delicate vintage travel trailer, and wanted to take our RV living onto the fast lane (ie. highway) with a conversion van that could go the distance from the Midwest to visit family in Florida… and we wanted to take our dog. Great lens and a nice place to visit. I liked your intro photo and others as well. Make sure that your dogs shots are up to date and you have your VET give you a copy of all their medical records and certificates. This means that you will take the dog to the reservations desk and then check them in, just as you would with your large suitcases and other checked luggage.

Streetside is where the electric plugs in. You’ll also see she’s missing some trim around her wheel well. Still pretty though.

Maybe I’m biased toward Dalton since … Read more

I go to this link often to see what is for sale and pretend that I am in a position to afford one.

The engine and interior of the truck itself was in great shape as it only had 38,000 miles on the odometer. The camper body itself, however, was in very bad condition due to a bad roof leak which caused much deterioration to the interior.Travel

Love these things, and some of them are really neat inside. My wife and I are actually considering buying my wife’s cousin’s pop-up he’s been trying to sell. We figure there are a ton of lakes and little camp spots around here, and it’s a good excuse just to get out a town for a weekend.

Also handy are organizers that fit the hotel room shelves. I just put these organizers on the shelves and I am free of the hassle of packing and unpacking. I also keep a few Ziploc bags in my luggage. I have to admit, they are versatile, handy and occupy less space. Moreover, I can immediately see what’s in there.
