Halloween Fun Facts

by Beth Whitman (October 30th, 2015)

I used to really get into Halloween. I would spend months working on my costume. While I can’t say I ever created anything too fancy, I did have fun with the process. I’ve been traveling out of the country for the past couple of Halloweens and have missed seeing our neighborhood kids dressed up. Sadly, […]

WanderWorld Foundation

by Beth Whitman (September 14th, 2015)

For nearly as long as WanderTours has been offering tours, we’ve been donating to organizations located in the countries where our tours run. The donations have all been made on behalf of our tour groups but they come directly from WanderTours. I am so excited to announce that we (myself and a small board of […]

Surfing Maui

by Beth Whitman (June 30th, 2015)

Back in April, I had the chance to go to Maui (my first time there!) for a retreat with my fellow Expedia Viewfinder bloggers. We took writing, video and photography workshops, had business meetings and spent time experiencing some of Maui’s best activities. Oh, and we ate. A lot. Jon was able to tag along […]

What’s My Job?

by Beth Whitman (May 4th, 2015)

It seems so cut and dried to me, what I do on a daily basis. But I’ve picked up from several conversations lately that some people don’t understand exactly what my job is. For example, I mentioned to my neighbor that I was going to Maui with my writing colleagues from the Expedia Viewfinder Blog. […]

Nepal ~ How You Can Help #Give3Nepal

by Beth Whitman (April 27th, 2015)

It’s been a sad few days as we all watch the death toll rise (as of this writing it’s nearly 4,000) and the number of injuries reported (more than 7,000) in the aftermath of the 7.8 earthquake in Nepal. Though it’s been years since I’ve been there, I know many people with very close ties […]

Women’s Travel Fest ~ What I Learned

by Beth Whitman (March 10th, 2015)

A couple of weekends ago, I attended (and spoke at) the Women’s Travel Fest (WTF), this year held in San Francisco. The weekend consisted of two full days of speakers and workshops. I participated on two panels on Saturday – one on women’s travel safety and an Expedia panel focused on No Excuses. More in-depth […]

Inspiration from The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

by Beth Whitman (March 4th, 2015)

As someone who has traveled to India a number of times, I adored The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. And I couldn’t resist the chance to be among the first to see its sequel, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Last night, I got a sneak preview! The same characters are back (with a bonus appearance […]

If the Sky’s the Limit, I’m Doing the Honolulu Marathon

by Beth Whitman (January 12th, 2015)

For years and years and years, I told myself I wasn’t a runner. If I tried jogging even a bit, I got winded easily and believed that my body type just wasn’t right for it. I could barely jog a few blocks. A marathon was the last thing on my mind. But at 45 I […]

2015 ~ The Year Ahead

by Beth Whitman (January 5th, 2015)

I just went back to the post I wrote around this time last year. I had completely forgotten about it and found it really refreshing. I had approached 2014 with few expectations. I had some New Year’s Resolutions and in looking over the list on New Year’s Day this year, I realized I accomplished many […]

Time Travel (forward) with Mr. Peabody & Sherman

by Beth Whitman (March 4th, 2014)

Remember Mr. Peabody? Me neither. But I know how to find stuff on Google… Mr. Peabody is a cartoon dog from Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show that aired in the late 50s and early 60s. He’s the smartest being in the world, but he’s also a bit lonely. So he adopts a […]
