About Me



A stranger is only a stranger until you say Hello.  “Hello!”  Now we are friends!

I’m Dev, just a simple girl who likes to travel and have fun. I have a thirst for knowledge and LOVE learning all about the history of places and really exploring the sites that I visit.

My husband of 29 years is my main travel partner and eagerly jumps on board for whatever I have planned.  We take lots of Long Weekends, Day Trips and we has seen 7 Countries in the last 3 years via my larger scale travel plans.  Many more to come and some to revisit.

I think it all started for me back in my high school Humanities class.  We studied, art, music, architecture and so much more. My original plan after graduating was to teach Humanities, but life took me down another path. Even so, I still have a passion for exploration and a need to see everything!   I do my best to find the time and money to explore the world.

I do not believe people should wait to travel until they retire or get to a certain magic number age, I think people should always travel whenever they can fit it in.  Seize the Day.  Make it happen.  No excuses.  There is always a way.

Blog Goals

We are not rich, so working within a budget is important to me. I am always looking for ways to save or make money for my Adventure fund and to cut my travel costs without sacrificing comfort.  This is an ongoing process since I have a long list of places yet to visit.  I am eager to pass tips and ideas on to you so you can fill your travel funds as well.

I write about things I am passionate about.  I want to share all kinds of travel, fun and adventures with you in hopes of giving you some small take away that helps you get more out of both your travel, your money and your life.  I will discuss everything from Wine Tasting, 3 day weekends, Vacations and International Travel. Adventures big and small!  Adventures Near and Far!

I’d love to hear your ideas, so make sure to leave comments about your experiences or things you’d like to see me write about.



Although I post whenever I can, I always drop a post around 10 am ET on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  

Any time you see Bold Teal writing in one of my posts, its a link to the content being discussed. (except this one, lol)
