It is unquestionable that Kathy Rudolph Petrino has a flair for writing about her favorite travel destinations in a way that encourages her readers to enjoy the same excursions them-selves, which is a great thing for helping those destinations thrive. Of course, the driving force behind her travel blog is to do just that; to make sure readers have a great time and avoid some of the hiccups she experienced when she travels. Kathy Rudolph Petrino intends to see everything worth seeing during her lifetime and she wants others to enjoy them as much as she did.

Among Kathy Rudolph Petrino’s favorite spots to travel is the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Here, along this 200-mile-long string of barrier islands that splits just off the coast of North Carolina,you will find beaches that are gorgeous, uncrowded, and, for some, nostalgic. The land and the beaches are seriously underrated and mostly unspoiled by excessive commerce; the small towns can only be called “cute” or “adorable.” Many old lighthouses dot the landscape and they are very nice to look at and educational. There is a lot of history here; the treacherous seas off the Outer Banks caused many shipwrecks, thus giving that section of the sea the nickname of "Graveyard of the Atlantic." There is nothing dangerous about the beaches and the hiking areas, though; they’re fun for the whole family.

Among Kathy Rudolph Petrino’s favorite destinations is the small Arizona town of Sedona, which some consider one of the world’s best-kept secrets. While Sedona has grown in popularity in recent years, the fact of the matter is, many travelers stay away because they assume it’s too trendy and expensive for working class families. Kathy wants her readers to worry less and wants them to know that one can see Sedona without shelling out big bucks. There are many great free things to see and do; even walking the streets of Downtown Sedona can be fun. That is, after all, where most of the nicest shops and restaurants are located. Also fun is a visit t one or more of the infamous Sedona“vortexes,” which are remnants of the decades-old“New Age movement” that hit the town a couple decades back. These “vortexes” are believed to be able to facilitate prayer, meditation, and healing.
