About Us

Wallowa Lake Lodge,

Travelnwrite the blog began in July 2009. Originally intended as a means to keep in touch with family, it has evolved into its present format: an on-line magazine that's drawn thousands of visitors from more than 120 countries.

You need inspiration? 
Or information?  
A nudge to travel a bit outside your comfort zone? 
Just want to be entertained by the adventures -- and misadventures -- of others?
Come along!

Using a play on words – ‘travel and write’ (what we do) and ‘travelin’ right’ (how we do it) – we take you with us introducing you to people we meet, places we go and deals that we’ve found.

If you are passionate about travel - the sensory overload it causes, the emotions it stirs, the fortitude it sometimes builds and the doors it opens - our blog is for you.

Profession to Passion

More than a dozen years ago, we quit our ‘8– to –5’ professions; Joel was an attorney and I was a former newspaper reporter-turned-public relations director. We'd spent years preparing to pursue our travel passions. We left the workaday world behind - long before 'retirement' age -- and set out to explore the world.

We spend  a third or more of each year living out of our suitcases. Trips as short as 24-hours or as long as five- to six- weeks call out to us. We've logged thousands of air miles, crossed numerous oceans and traveled many roadways in various countries. 

In TravelnWrite we tell you how and why we selected a destination, the ways we saved (or spent) money getting there and some of the extraordinary experiences we had along the way.

We don't claim to be specialists in any particular style of travel or destination. If its an adventure that appeals; we are packed and ready to go. We spend time educating ourselves about an area (and our readers as well). Once we arrive, we are able to travel without set itineraries to ‘where the winds blow us’.  

* Joel is the researcher (deals and destinations) using both electronic and print resources (use the Deal Finder  tab on the Home page for some of his some of his favorite sites). 

* Jackie, a freelance writer, maintains the blog and is the primary photographer (links to her published travel articles can be found on the Pacific Northwest Travel tab on the home page.)
