About the Post

Author Information

My name is Scott and I like to travel. There I said it, wow that does feel better. There is probably a program for my affliction somewhere. I am what I would consider a Normal Guy. I am a native Arizonan, sometimes we are called “Zonies”. I am in my mid 40′s and enjoy a great life. I am self employed and have a wonderful daughter and Partner. Although I would say my life is a fairly normal one, I am also quite lucky in that I have the ability to travel and enjoy the world, I enjoy learning about other cultures and experiencing the world around us. I want to be right upfront about the type of travel I enjoy and the type I don’t. You will probably not ever read a story of about me backpacking my way through the serengeti during the height of summer, nor will you probably read any stories of me sleeping in the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton in Paris. I am not a budget traveler, nor am I an uber luxury traveler, I fall somewhere in the middle, where most people fall I believe. I started this blog for the sole purpose of sharing my stories, my views and my excitement for traveling around this world with my friends, family. However it doesn’t stop there for me, I also wanted to make friends with others around the world, those who travel and those who dream of travel. Blogs and Websites evolve over time, mine will no doubt expand over time as well please come back and see what has taken place. However if you have come to my blog to schedule a flight or a hotel, this is not the place.

Sedona Makes Magazine’s List of Best Small Towns to Visit

As a native Arizonan, I can attest the sheer beauty and majesty of the Red Rocks of Sedona. Of course; anyone who lives here probably has a story to tell about a time when they went to Sedona. My story goes back to when I was just a young boy. My Grandparents lived in Sedona, the real Sedona. The one before it became a tourist”s destination. The Sedona that just the quirky artists and ranchers knew. My Grandfather was the only butcher in the only market in the whole town of Sedona. I can remember taking walks with him up and down Schnebly Hill, fishing in Oak Creek and just loving the area. Now that I am older and more established, I find it is difficult to get back to Sedona as often as I would like. I encourage any of my readers that if you find yourself in Arizona, please make your way to Sedona. You won’t be disappointed.

Safe Travels.

As if you needed another reason to make a trip to Red Rock Country: Smithsonian magazine has named Sedona to its list of “20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2014” in a story in its April issue.

Here’s what the magazine says: “Approaching Sedona, you will feel your jaw drop as pinnacles, hoodoos and buttes rise—crimson, carmine, burnt sienna, depending on the slant of the sun. The effect makes you want to paint a Sistine Chapel even if you can’t draw a straight line.”

The president of the Sedona Chamber of Commerce, Jennifer Wesselhoff, says being included on the list is an honor. “It’s recognition like this that helps position Sedona as a premier destination in the United States,” Wesselhoff says in a statement. “Kudos to the businesses recognized for top-notch service and world-class products and services.”

Sedona placed No. 8 on the…

      Hello Mom,
      I do remember, there are a lot of great memories. It is interesting what memories stick and those that don’t but it’s sure good to have great memories.
