We chose Wind and Whim because it describes our travel philosophy. We don’t plan too far in advance because we want to be open to new possibilities and we are a bit lazy. We go wherever the wind and our whims take us.

2020 was the first year that we mapped out an itinerary for the year. We did this so our adult daughters could visit us during the year. And we all know how that turned out.
