We love to travel and in doing so, over the past few years, we have found some favorite places to visit. We wanted to share these sites and some things we have learned about these locations with others who also like to travel. We hope that these tips with be a help to you!

Do you fly a lot? One thing we have found that helps us easily identify our luggage (and we've never lost it!) to paint designs on it. Take a look at our hand painted luggage to get ideas for making your own designs.

Where we spent our honeymoon and would rather be right now !!

We stayed at the Divi Tiara Resort on Cayman Brac, B.W.I. and we loved it! If you are looking for some place to go that is quiet yet has modern faculties we highly recommend it. It is also a dive resort so if you like to dive it is a great place to stay. 

We went snorkeling on Little Cayman which was an amazing adventure in its own right. Contact Shelby Scott (345-948-0538) to arrange for a trip to see Little Cayman. He was a great guide, captain and cook. While we snorkeled, he grilled fish, plantain and rice on the beach for our lunch. If you go in the afternoon, make sure to look between Little Cayman Brac and the bluff from the east side and you'll see an Indian Chief appear. This natural rock formation has to be seen to be believed.

More on the Cayman Islands (they have some really nice photos too)

We really like vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina

By the way, if you like Lighthouses, make sure you check out our Lighthouse Page.

While you are on Hatteras, make sure you take the ferry over to Ocracoke. The Blackbeard Museum is really neat.

Another great beach; especially in the off-season, is Virginia Beach. One of the best things about going  to Virginia Beach is eating at Captain George's Seafood Restaurant!

We also have vacationed in Topsail Island, N.C.  We stayed at the St. Regis Resort, which we liked a lot. Next time, though, we would like to try the Villa Capriani. They have an excellent restaurant and the suite we toured was very nice. The pools and Jacuzzis on the beach were gorgeous.

We had the pleasure of spending 10 days in Hawaii in 2003; we loved it!

We stayed at the beautiful Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club at Kalapaki Beach. The view, the pool, the food, the people...everything was fantastic. We would love for you to view our photos and travelogue.

What would a trip to Hawaii be without a tour of the islands by helicopter??
