About Our Blog

 Thank you for making my day and taking the time to read our travel blog. It is about our family and our travels through the US, Canada, Caribbean, Europe and Mexico. It is being designed for other people who enjoy traveling and want to read about our vacation and the activities that are available in that area.   Hopefully it might bring back some pleasant memories for you from a previous vacation. Hope you enjoy reading about our trips. Please feel free to reply and let me know about your trip or what you thought about our trip. Or email me directly at samantha@ourtravelingblgo.com.  I would love to hear from you.I promise to get back to you ASAP. And don’t forget to share and follow us on Facebook and Twitter @ samstravblog. You can also check out our website at www.genesam.yolasite.com. I created this blog and website in hopes to help feed my travel fever. So far, all it has done is make me want to travel more, lol. However, I love it, so please keep sharing!


Our last real trip was to Florida. We spent four days in Daytona and then four days in Orlando.  Daytona was nice, but Orlando felt like Anaheim on steroids, lol. Needless to say, I was ready to go back to Daytona, but we were there for the LWMS convention which was nice. Traffic around I-Drive was just insane, and I felt like we were back in California. Even with crazy heat and humidity (which was worse in Orlando too) we had a nice time.

Here is a list of some posts from our trip(s) to the Daytona and Orlando area.


Our next scheduled trip is to St Louis, MO in September. I have some family out there so it will be nice to see them, as well as do some more exploring. Looking forward to going to the Lewis and Clark museum in St Charles since we are related to John Colter.   Check back late September for posts from our trip to St. Louis, MO.



  • Thailand
  • Iceland – Hopefully happening in May 2019, but we will see how it goes.
  • Germany – Spending our 20th anniversary in Germany May 2018!!!! Can’t wait to mark it off our bucket list 🙂

  4. Thailand is wonderful – we’ve been 10 times since 2006. If you go, I thoroughly recommend Kanchanaburi (http://goo.gl/xYcBbJ)

    I would love to make it to the USA and see crazy horse mountain – hopefully we will go next year before we go to Brazil for the olympics.

    I’m looking forward to reading your posts!
