I’m always on the go, searching for intriguing tales to share. There’s nothing like the magic of seeing what’s around the next corner. The world is so beautiful that I couldn’t help but start sharing it. So then I started writing and sharing my trips with readers who want to learn more about our world. Once I started writing, I soon learned that having my own images was key to authenticity. That’s when I bought a camera and started learning the ins and outs of it. Marie Goff explorer writer became a photographer too. Whew! Since I started writing and learning photography, I’ve found that both of these force you to see the world in a new and exciting way.
My stories highlight the cultural richness of people, beautiful landscapes, and rare encounters with wildlife. And always with awe inspiring images.
Travel, writing, and photography involves all sorts of guides and travel companions. I love to highlight them too. Each one is unique and I always learn so much from them. Not to mention, without them, I couldn’t get to some of the places I go and the experience would not be the same. Their enthusiam keeps me planning and packing.
Part of the magic of the journey is the people you meet along the way.
My husband Eddie is my best travel companion! He does a lot of the research and planning, especially for our road trips. He does a lot of driving too. In addition, he researches new equipment, proofreads stories, and a whole lot more.
Occasionally, my blog features guest writers and photographers. They are like-minded people spinning tales of intrigue of their own. All of the information on this site is my own, except where I highlight my guests.
Thank you again for joining me on these amazing journeys. I’m blessed beyond measure to take them. I hope they inspire your own journeys too!
My husband, Eddie, and I love Tampa, Florida and visit there frequently. Our fondness of the city began when he was stationed at MacDill Air Force Base. We had just gotten married in 2007 when he went on tour for four years. First he was stationed at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for a year. Then, Walter Reed was located at 6900 Georgia Avenue NW in Washington, D.C. After that, he was selected to work at MacDill Air Force Base and served there for three years. I was working too and couldn't visit often but when I did, the time we shared was magical, especially in the beautiful and energetic city of Tampa.
Now when we visit, we still do many of the things we loved back then. We get a lot of questions about what to do there. Read the story below to learn how to enjoy Tampa like a local.
