Stories of our Travels

We are travelers rather that tourists. We enjoy staying a while and getting to know the places we visit. We recently visited Croatia for about 6 weeks. We also visited Zermatt, Annecy, Barcelona and Venice. 

Travel is Beautiful focuses on 3 things

We hope you enjoy the stories of our travels.

Traveling as we do

We like to travel light and be active. What to bring to accommodate activity, photography and changing weather while keeping a blog updated can be a challenge. 

We travel with carryon luggage even when our trips are months long. We are happy to share with you some of our lessons learned.

  • What to pack
  • How we pass the time while
  • Where we stay
  • Photography gear
