Twipper of the Month – April 2018: Janice and George Mucalov from Sand In My Suitcase
“The life you have led doesn’t need to be the only life you have.” – Anna Quindlen
Career did not let Janice and George, April’s Twipper of the Month, deter them from living their best life. From briefcase to suitcase the former lawyers have spent the past five years traveling and discovering the world as well as the underworld while writing articles for publications like Islands.com, TravelAge West, NUVO.com, Cruise & Travel Lifestyles, Taste of Life and Interval World.
These luxury travel bloggers like to enjoy the finer things in life – fancy 5-star hotels and cruise ships – but are also down to venture off the beaten path and “losing [themselves] in long conversations with local guides and people.” But what makes the Mucolov’s adventures even more fullfilling is they know how to give back by simply writing and promoting businesses that support good causes and donating to a charity that helps out countries in need.
Twipper of the Month – March 2018: Doreen Pendgracs from Chocolatour!
TOM – Doreen Pendgracs
Mix wanderlust and a love for chocolate, and you have Doreen “The Chocolate Queen” who’s looking to pave the way for a new type of traveling; Chocolatourism. Starting from a love of chocolate, Chocolatour has evolved into a personalized brand of hosted chocolate dinners, chocolate and wine pairing events, chocolate tours, and chocolate chats with Doreen as your host. And while most of us can only use a word or two to describe chocolate, Doreen wrote an award winning book, Chocolatour: A Quest For The World’s Best Chocolate. The Chocolatour mission, “to educate, entertain, and inspire chocolate lovers to gain greater knowledge of the world of chocolate through travel,” and she does just that. Through her travels she has learned to appreciate cultural differences and personalities, but nothing has stopped her sweet tooth and to appreciate the best chocolates the world has to offer. Furthermore, she proves that there is more to chocolate than just its sinful goodness. Doreen’s unique and sweet (literally) way of traveling makes her Twipper of the Month for March.
Twipper of the Month – February 2018: Jane and Duncan from To Travel Too!
Oscar Wilde once said, “to live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” It’s a cynical statement that holds a lot of truth for most of us. Not for Jane and Duncan who are February’s Twippers of the Month! This Baby Boomer couple believes it’s never too late to truly live rather than to merely exist. With their bucket list and wanderlust in check, they set out for a ‘gap year’ inspired by their son which turned into a decade of unforgettable memories and new adventures. After checking off 55 countries on their list, Jane and Duncan are still ready for more! “Travel is a freedom that brings new experiences and adventures every day of your life,” says Jane and Duncan. They’re an inspiration to baby boomers by showing it’s never too late to go on that ‘gap year’ you once planned and that age is just a number.
Twipper of the Month – January 2018: Tony Giles from Tony the Traveller!
16-bungee jumps, 3 skydives, and a near-death experience in the rivers of Zambia aren’t the only things that make Tony interesting and our Twipper of the Month for January 2018! What makes him remarkable is the way he chooses to live life with no excuses. His inabilities to neither see nor hear are not an excuse for him to go after his dreams and travel the world. Since the age of 19 he began writing about my journeys and publishing two books, Seeing The World My Way and Seeing The Americas My Way, and one version in Polish. He also has his own travel show documentary on BBC and interviewed for many publications. At 39 and 125 countries later, Tony is determined to visit every country in the world and maybe even the moon. He’s a reminder that with the right mindset we can go anywhere we dream about.
