Through a combination of narrative, photography and personal reflection, Destinations Detours and Dreams’ travel stories entertain as they take readers to destinations around the world and provide useful information. Culture, history, art, nature, architecture, and food receive special focus, as does the snowbird lifestyle.

What Readers Say

Another piece that takes us straight to the destination.

Your articles are so descriptive I can actually envision being at that destination.

It’s very much like you take us along and I love when travel writers do that.

As usual, your article (and wonderful photos) covered all the details a tourist would like to know.
