Thanks for visiting. A little about me.  I am a midwest girl. Calling Northwest Indiana my home for a little greater than 50 years, I decided that there were so many places that I would like to explore. My 5 children were grown and started families of their own and it was time for me to do me. I quit my job that I dearly loved and signed on with a travel company so I could work and see as much as I could before setting roots in retirement. I began this adventure in October of 2016 and decided that I should put my adventures on "paper". Join us while we are Taking The Scenic Route.
