The Traveling Steve's

Welcome from The Steve’s

Hi and welcome to our site!  Yes, we are both named Steve, and love to travel! We are a happily partnered and professional couple of 18+  years who live in the Orlando, Florida area.  We have a lot of combined travel experiences, and our goal is to show you the fun side of travel, from fun day trips, to cruises, to exotic destinations. 

While neither one of us works for Disney, we are HUGE Disney fans as well, so we have lots of content on Disney World as well as the local Orlando area, where we sometimes take weekend “Stay-cations”.  

To keep things simple, I do most of the posting and am sometimes nicknamed Steve UNO to differentiate from Steve DOS, but together we’re The Steve’s.   In the photo above Steve UNO is on the left, and Steve DOS is on the right.

We have both traveled for work throughout our careers, as well as extensively for leisure.  Steve DOS  retired a few years ago as a Captain for a major airline, flying world-wide, but mostly Japan towards the end of his career on the Boeing 777.

I (UNO) recently retired from a large communication company doing implementations of 9-1-1 Public Safety equipment all over the US, with occasional international travel.   I started this blog several years ago due to the countless experiences I/We’ve had over the years, and would like to share them with others, and any tips we might have discovered along the way.  When I first started traveling for work in 1986 I kept a hand-written journal of my experiences, never realizing one day the internet and a blog would become reality!  This blog is effectively my modern day journal in digital form with lots of photos.

This site focuses mostly on the leisure (FUN!) side of travel, but prior to my retirement in December 2019, I also shared my business travel tips, frustrations, and maybe a bit of serendipity as I encountered it.  I always felt like my life was a “Seinfeld episode” and co-workers and friends used to call me “The Accidental Tourist”, as something would always happen, usually funny or “could only happen to you Steve”!

I’ve taken thousands of photos over the years, although DOS never really did in spite of him traveling for a longer length of time than me, so I’m happy to share some of my early travel memories as well as our joint travels over the last 18+ years.  I also have a few travel videos I have made (all amateur of course!),  and just for fun of some of the trips, ocean cruises, and river cruises we’ve taken together, which are posted on Youtube under Like2cruz.  (How appropriate! LOL!)

Thanks for stopping by and please enjoy!  This site is ad-free, and we do not receive nor seek compensation for any of the material which we have copyrighted here, nor for the links we provide.  This blog is just my amateurish way of providing updates on our where-abouts and hopefully offer tips to anyone reading. If I do provide a link to a tour, hotel, cruise, restaurant etc, however, you can be assured we really had an exceptional experience (unless otherwise stated) and like to recommend that establishment, and there is no compensation on our part – it’s our way of saying Thanks for great service! 

Safe and Happy Travels!  God bless!

    I’m not sure the spot you’re getting the information, but great topic.
    I must spend a bit of time learning more or understanding more.
    Thanks a lot for fantastic information I was once searching for
    this information for my mission.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a
    few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show
    the same outcome.

      Thank you for noticing. I was in Easter Island last week when I was using my iPad to post instead of my usual MacBook. It was a bit cumbersome using the iPad vs the Macbook and as you could see didn’t post the photos correctly. I think I’ve updated them all the correct way now, but could be some I missed. Thanks for your comments. Easter Island is gorgeous and I’m in the process of upload a full gallery of pics.

    Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Thanks, However I am encountering issues with your RSS.

    I don’t understand exactly why I am just unable to subscribe to it.
    Is there anybody getting the identical RSS issues? Anyone that knows the answer could you kindly
    respond? Thanx!!

    1. Steve Uno Post author

      I need to update the subscribe option – it’s not you; I’m still learning this ‘blog stuff’, hope to get that working soon. Thanks!

    We stumbled over here by a different website address and thought I may as well
    check things out. I like what I see so now i am just following you.
    Anticipate groing through your internet page yet again.

  5. JameFHedding

    Having check this out I thought it was very enlightening. I appreciate you spending a while and effort to
    place this short article together. I remember when i again find myself personally
    spending plenty of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But what exactly, it was still worthwhile!

  6. JamisonZBeyt

    Write more, thats all I actually have to say. Literally,
    it appears like you relied on the video to produce your point.
    You clearly understand what youre speaking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting
    videos in your blog when you can be giving us something enlightening to read through?

  7. DeonXBuffone

    Thanks a lot for sharing this with all people you
    actually know what you are talking about! Bookmarked. Kindly also discuss
    with my site =). We will have a link exchange
    agreement among us

    found you by error, while I was browsing on Google for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say cheers for a fantastic post and a
    all round thrilling blog (I also love the
    theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it all at the moment
    but I have book-marked it and also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the great work.

    Do you know if you can extend the trip on the Ha Long Bay junk? I am a travel agent with clients travelling on AMA Waterways. They want to extend the Ha Long Bay 1-2 nights. It is not offered by AMA, and I am wondering if they can do it on their own?

    1. Steve Uno Post author

      I would think not, only because the Ha Long Bay is in the middle of the cruise tour, and AMA and others charter the boat (actually 3 boats due to the group size) for the junk sailing. They could do Ha Long Bay prior to or after the AMA cruise/tours on their own provided they get their own transportation there. We did notice on the ‘junk boat’ we used they have 1 and 2 day sailings, you could try and contact the line to see when they have openings or not being chartered.

    I the same as the valuable information you supply to your articles.
    I’ll bookmark your blog and check out again below regularly.
    I’m moderately sure I will be told many new stuff right here!

    Best of luck for the next!

      Hi Dominick and Garrie! It was so nice to meet you both on the Yangtze Explorer in China. It was really an incredible trip! Will look you up next time we’re in Ft. Lauderdale, and if you’re up in the Orlando area, please contact us as well. Take care, Steve and Steve (Steve Uno and Steve Dos)

      Thank you Barbara! It was so nice to have met you and John as well in Sarasota last week. Happy Trails to you as well!

    1. Steve Uno Post author

      Hi Doug, sorry I’m not the Steve Penlin from the Pub you’re thinking of. Do go to Daytona a fair bit though, as I live in nearby Orlando area.

    1. Steve Uno Post author

      Likewise, it was so nice to meet you as well! We had a blast on the Scarlet Lady, and booked an 8 day cruise on Virgin for late January. We’re in Sarasota now, and just downloading all my pics. Will update the blog with a Virgin review in a couple days. Safe travels, and see you in Orlando sometime hopefully!
