About Us

We love to see, do and learn.

We created this web site because it brings together so much of the things we enjoy in life. We've been married for 33 years and love to travel, see, and experience as much of the world as we possibly can. During our travels we take photographs of anything we find interesting about the place we are visiting. Our Travel/Destinations page on this site has detailed pictures of the various places we've visited, as does our YouTube site under John & Virginia's Videos. We didn't go overseas until we had visited all 50 states together. We also visited our Northern and Southern bordering countries of Canada and Mexico. The listing below is a list of our overseas vacations.
