Taking on the World, One Place at a Time

Our leisure-time passion is travel. We learn at every destination. The antique shop in a nearby town is as exciting as a passport-required, exotic locale.

Travel – Always Relaxing, Always Educational.

We’re sharing our travel stories, but our primary goal is to share knowledge beyond the story and help you experience the travel experiences that you desire.

Lake Tiak O’Khata near Louisville, Mississippi, is a relaxing destination, offering cabins, a lodge, and RV campsites.

We toured the lake, took a hike, and dined at the on-site restaurant. Stay in the Lake Tiak O’Khata cabins for a quiet weekend with nature.

We Recommend These Top 10 Places to Go and Sites to Visit

1. Alaska

Change perspectives with a trip to Alaska’s interior or a perimeter cruise. Nature photography excursions add dimension to every visit.

2. Mississippi

We’re exploring close to home and learning more about Mississippi writers, musicians, and history. It’s a fun exploration filled with waterfalls and nature trails.

3. Washington DC

Politics aside, we love the monuments and history-steeped atmosphere of our nation’s capital city.
