About Us

Herman Rusch’s Prairie Moon Sculpture Garden, Cochrane.

We celebrate opportunities to connect through travel, starting with our home state of Wisconsin. That means better understanding other cultures, quirks, lifestyles and people. It doesn’t matter if they’re one city away from home or in the most remote parts of Earth.

This site exists because of Midwest Features Syndicate and Wisconsin native Mary Bergin. At the heart of what we’ve done, since 2002, is the syndicated Roads Traveled column.

Nick Engelbert’s Grandview, Hollandale.

We strive to inform travelers about worthy but lesser-known destinations.

We champion the efforts of independently-owned enterprises, especially those that are progressive and tread lightly on the Earth.

We emphasize positive possibilities for travel. No cheap shots.

We welcome your own observations but do not entertain anonymous feedback.

Our research sometimes involves media trips and subsidized ventures, but we do not “play for pay.” That means although we need and appreciate such subsidies, positive editorial coverage is not promised in return for it.
