Ask Your Friends Who’ve Been There!

Who knew a cup of coffee would bring these two “travel nuts” together?!  

Having traveled to nearly 40 countries, we’ve enjoyed everything from sleeping at the base camp of Mount Everest, traveling in our RV exploring our US National Parks, frequenting Disney parks around the world and walking inside a volcano in Hawaii.  But still, nothing compares to watching our traveling dog (Hana) run on the beach!

Over the years our friends and family would come to us for tips and advice to plan their trips.  So, think of Peanuts or Pretzels as your way to get the scoop from your friends who’ve already been there!

We can help you figure out where to go, what to do, how to plan it…and how to get the most out of it!
