  • Fiji was always one of those destinations I had as a dream destination but the distance and the expense were a bit out of my reach. But when I was asked to go cover Turtle Island for Islands Magazine, my suitcase was packed before I could hang up the phone. And my husband was inviting along as well (a nice perk of being the spouse of a travel writer). It is by far the best…

  • I get asked this a lot. “Where’s your favorite place?” “What’s the best place you’ve been?” So in today’s pandemic-fueled If you can’t look forward, look back world, I thought I’d tell you about the places I’ve been that left a lasting impression.

I pictured dense forests with tall trees, cool, breezy weather and rugged outdoor activities. So what would a lounge-by-the-beach girl possibly find to do there? I was about to find out on a weekend adventure to San Juan Island and its charming seaport, Friday Harbor. Getting to the San Juan Islands is half the…

  • As I wrote in my article for Islands Magazine, there are some destinations that transform themselves. And then there are some that transform you. Turtle Island is that place. At least it was for me. This private island offers one of the best Fiji vacations for couples. It was definitely one of my dream vacations so when I was offered the opportunity to travel to Fiji for Islands Magazine, I jumped at the chance. But…
