“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Here’s Hap

Meet Hap, the Travel Haven mascot!  I think you’ll be seeing a lot of Hap as he accompanies me from place to place on my travels.


I call him Hap because some of my best travel experiences have been things that I just Happened on.  He also reminds me to be a happy traveler.  And besides I always loved the song The Happy Wanderer:    


Valderi, val-dera, Val-deri, val-dera, Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
