"Amsterdam, with its arched canals and unique roofline is a city like no other."
"It has the energy and hustle of New York, but with a certain “old world” fairytale quality. Tall and slender, with infinite windows, its waterfront homes and businesses are a study in geometric shapes."
"That is why, when I saw this fabric featuring those very homes, I knew I had to have it. With bolt in arms, we headed back toward the Metro, but couldn’t leave without first buying a freshly made stroopwafel, warm with sticky melting caramel. Checking the fabric and stroopwafel off my bucket list we boarded the tram!" —Traveler Cathy Hoodak

Traveler Tim recently visited one of his favorite places in the world, a small village near Bamako, Mali.
Back in 2017, Tim helped open a middle school with a foundation called Mali Rising, which focuses on building schools in remote areas to spread education to the youth.
He has traveled back multiple times to visit the school (which was named in honor of him) and recently visited again to attend the wedding of his best friend's daughter.
The stories and pictures that Tim shared with us were INCREDIBLE..and they reminded us of our favorite things to do while traveling.
Traveler Matthew recently traveled to Taipei, Taiwan to visit his cousin.
The trip left him feeling bubbly since there were plen-tea of amazing things to do.
