Wanda and I have had the exploration bug all of our 45 years of married life. We backpacked in the pristine Arctic Wildlife Range, we have whitewater canoed many wild rivers, we’ve Airbnb'ed our way around the Yucatan, RV’ed Europe, and we even got our pilot’s license and bought an airplane to help in our explorations. Our mode of operandi has always been to pick out an area, do some research on exciting things to do and see, and develop a loose itinerary. The prime directive is to have something to do every day on our trips.
Planning is the key. We don’t do pre-planned tours or all-inclusive packages. We like to find those out-of-the-way gems that are less visited. Even with the can’t-miss significant attractions, we plan our sightseeing during the times that have the fewest tourists. We have met hundreds of like-minded travelers that also develop their trips at their own pace.
Our mission is to present our explorations in a way that gives other travelers ideas, tips, confidence and great photos. We have just started adding our 30-days in Mexico stories and have so much more globetrotting escapades to include: Spain, Portugal, Africa, Germany, Holland, Granada and Carriacou Islands, and Houseboating at Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota. Check back often to see what's new or join our mailing list and never miss an update. Thank you for stopping by. We are glad you can join us. It's time to go somewhere.

Diane and Heinrich Marz
My sister, Diane, moved to Germany in 1964. Soon after moving she met Heinrich and they married. Diane and Heinrich also love to travel, and they spent decades exploring Europe. About ten years ago, they decided that they want to live on a boat. Heinrich went to sailing school, and together they started looking all over Europe for a suitable sailboat. Unfortunately, nothing affordable that was in decent shape materialized. Consequently, they switched gears and bought a "land-boat," that is, an RV. A very impressive class C RV built on a sturdy Mercedes diesel chassis.
About the same time, Diane and Heinrich also purchased a "base-camp" cottage in St. Germain, WI, allowing them to visit family and enjoy the woods and lakes of northern Wisconsin. Their family visits worked well for all of us. We have a small portable pontoon boat, and the four of us hit just about every lake and reservoir in northern Wisconsin during the summer months that Diane and Heinrich spend in St. Germain. Usually, by November, we go to Europe to RV with them.
Diane is a terrific itinerary developer. Heinrich, an retired engineer, keeps everything in running order and customizes every piece of equipment he gets his hands on. Wanda is the webmaster, and I take the photos and keep a journal of our travels. We're an effective team.
