Nice to meet you! I’m Rhonda, the writer and photographer behind Travel? Yes Please!
This site was born from my lifelong love of travel and desire to share beautiful imagery of the places I’ve visited. I hope my photos, stories, and experiences not only inspire others to explore our wonderful world, but help make the planning process easier for those embarking on their own adventures.
Rhonda & Mike- About Us
My husband Mike and I make it a priority to travel every chance we get. Whether it be shorter getaways in our home country of Canada, or multi-week international journeys, we are out to see the world one trip at a time!
We describe our travel style as “laid back luxe” and enjoy a wide variety of destinations and experiences. We love nature, adventure, wildlife, archaeological sites, beaches, city breaks, road trips, and romantic getaways. Between the two of us, we’ve got all the bases covered when it comes to travel!
When we’re not travelling, Mike works in forestry as a reclamation coordinator. I used to teach elementary school, but am now working full-time on the blog.
To help you get to know us better, we took turns interviewing each other about travel. Here are our answers!
