About Our Blog

  • us in Idaho

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. 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!


We recently returned from an amazing trip to Hawaii  It was our 2nd time to Hawaii, but our first trip to Oahu and Waikiki. I didn’t want to come back 🙁 One of these days, I want to spend some real time on the islands. In the meantime, I am happy to share some of posts I shared from our trip to Oahu. Mahalo.

I will end this list with a post of 8 pictures from Oahu. One for each island.



Our next scheduled trip is  to Seattle, WA over the Presidents day weekend. It is going to be a delayed Valentines day celebration since it’s in the middle of the week. Looking forward to getting away and seeing some of the sites we didn’t get to see when we were there last May. Check out my post for a chance to win a free souvenir for your loved one.

  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 love this idea! I think you should name it the Taki Travels or Taki Travelers! You and Gene are adorable and do really get around, so I can’t wait to read all about it!
