Jerry and Mercy Strubeck are empty nesters with three adult children and a love for their mutual hobby of travel. The purpose of this blog is to share stories about our travels and the travels of our friends. We love talking about travel and this is a vehicle for us to offer our own perspective on a variety of destinations, cultures and people. We also hope to share some tips and tricks here with those seeking advice on a myriad of travel related topics. A hobby within the travel hobby is photography so there will be lots of photos, mostly of the landscapes we’ve encountered. Although we’re not here to sell anything we are both independent travel agents in our spare time. If you need our professional help please contact us, but that’s not the purpose of this site. We will however share reviews of trusted vendors that we’ve either used or sold to clients that have proven track records. We’ve cruised on the oceans and the rivers, taken group tours, and depending on the location we travel mostly independently. Thus the name this blog. We have indeed gotten lost and in so doing we have discovered some amazing things, people and places that we otherwise would have never known. So, GET LOST! We hope you enjoy this site.
