On my drive home, my thoughts wandered - as it often does-
What about other places that people don't know about-
Amazing Inn's and B&B that are off the beaten path. I decided that I would

MY TRAVELING APRON to enhance, encourage and enlighten

being welcomed by incredible Innkeepers.
And so my travel begins and in order to fund it I have set up a
KICKSTARTER project that will extend my current tour that begins
today. More to Follow Please check it out
There are many more beautiful places just like A.G Thomson
they just need to be discovered and shared with you.
