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 17 + 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”.
Until the COVID pandemic, we also loved taking cruises (both ocean and river), but more recently had enjoyed taking river cruises to exotic places such as South Africa, Vietnam/Cambodia, and parts of Europe. As I write this in March 2022, many of the restrictions such as mask-wearing tend to be easing up, and international travel and cruising are now starting to pick up again. Since the pandemic we have started ocean cruising once again, this time utilizing Princess Cruises so far, which we really enjoy.
To keep things simple, I will be doing most of the posting and friends sometimes call me UNO and the other Steve DOS to differentiate; but together we’re The Steve’s. (UNO is the number one in Spanish, and DOS is the number two in Spanish. Uno and Dos! (DOS is pronounced DOSE). 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 recently retired 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 decided to start 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 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 will focus mostly on the leisure (FUN!) side of travel, but prior to my retirement in December 2019, I 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 freindsl 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 longer, so I’m happy to share some of my early travel memories as well as our joint travels over the last 17 + 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!)
