Travel tips created: 1

Hi! I’m Joan. And since you found me on this website, I’m guessing that you share my love of travel! I got my first taste of international travel back in 1969 – 1970, when I spent a year as a student in Bergen, Norway with the University of California’s Education Abroad Program. That life-changing experience gave me a wanderlust that has never ended. My husband Rob and I have been exploring the world together for the last 22 years. So far, we have visited over 40 countries on six continents. We have learned a lot from all that traveling - HOW to travel easily (pack light!), how to ENJOY our travels (be flexible!), how to LEARN on our travels (interact with the local people, do some research, etc. etc. etc.) I can’t imagine traveling without my journal. Travel is so full of new sights and sensations, interesting encounters with people, so much history, art, and culture to learn about. It is hard to remember everything without writing it down. (In fact, if I don’t write things down each evening of a trip, I find myself saying to Rob, “Ummm, what did we do day before yesterday?”) I share the full story of our journeys on my journal website, “Travels With Robby,” which you can access at But on every adventure, there are events or encounters that are especially memorable or meaningful. These provide the inspiration for my travel tips and travel stories. Some are humorous, some are instructive, some are tragic…but with all of them, I hope to share some of the wonder and joy of exploring the world. You will find my stories at
