The Travelogues of Diane and Dave

D & D Home


Welcome to Diane and Dave's Travel Page. We like to travel and we like to read about other people's travels. We've gathered our travelogues together for others to read in the hopes that someone may find some of the information helpful or that it may give someone ideas for a destination of their own.

We prefer to travel simply. We don't like big glitzy all-inclusive resorts. We prefer quieter, quainter, simpler accommodations. We prefer areas that are not heavily populated (we have to put up with enough crowds every day living in the Washington, DC area). We usually take two vacations per year. Our "spring break" is usually relaxing on a warm tropical island in the Caribbean and our summer/fall vacation is usually backpacking or hiking or camping somewhere in the western US.

So please sit back, make yourself comfortable, pick a destination and enjoy your armchair travels. If you have any questions about any of our trips, email us (address at bottom). We're fairly friendly and will be glad to pass on what info we can.
