I like to think I never take travel for granted, that I always remember what a… Continue reading How We Take Travel for Granted (but never again)

Where to Spend Valentine’s Day Solo

Valentine’s Day is all about love and lovers… and it kind of stinks for the singles! I used to call it “Singles’ Awareness Day” (acronym “SAD,” of course!), but my attitude toward Valentine’s Day changed over the years, even before I met my husband!

My Top Posts of 2019

This has been a huge year for the blog, and 2019 brought Quick Whit Travel to a major milestone: 100,000 views!
