This is Donna and Mark’s travel blog. It’s about exploring places near and far. It’s about journeys past, present, and future. All our travels start with my favorite lyrics from Joni Mitchell’s song “Amelia”. “People will tell you where they’ve been. They’ll tell you where to go. Until you’ve been there yourself you never really know. Where some have found their Paradise, others have come to harm…” You could argue that those words are not particularly uplifting, but they are true. The fact that Donna and I are still traveling and still writing about it is hopeful. We’ve survived our adventures. You can survive a few of your own too. Get Going! While the Going is Good!!!
