Stories of A Pampered Traveler

Antigua Classic RegattaFor over a decade I have had the good fortune to venture beyond the borders of my home in the Green Mountains of Vermont to experience and report to other avid travelers on some of the amazingly well thought out and luxurious places there are to visit on the planet.

I give first hand accounts of my visits to inform honestly about the experience, to entertain with humor and observation, and to offer visual insights with my ever present camera. Most of the places that I visit are aiming for perfection and they usually acheive it.

I enjoy getting to the spirit of a place as I believe that most of us travel to step out of our daily lives in order to return relaxed or enthused, calmed or invigorated but always refreshed about life.

I am always interested in getting more than one story out of each trip with placements in several different venues. One story about a honeymoon destination might also be a fabulous story for a different magazine on a woman looking to refresh and renew herself for the next episode of her life. A feature on yacht charter might also be a wonderful honeymoon scenario for a different magazine. Many rewrites and different photos mean lots of work, but I love my job!

I use different words and photos for each story, and target it to a different readership with the editorial style prefered by each magazine I submit to. That is why you will find my work published in many diverse magazines.

I am also a realtor at Sugarbush/Mad River in Vermont. I have done several articles on the different kinds of investing that goes on in the outside world. I am looking to do more of that kind of article, so please let me know if you are interested in that subject.

This is a really great life, and sharing it with readers really focuses my attention on how lucky I am!
