Author: Rick and Andrea

In March 2017, Rick and Andrea started a Facebook Group called Travel Addicts as a way to share our travel photos and videos with the world. And boy did it ever grow! As of June 2019, the group has grown to nearly 160,000 members! One reason for our success, we believe, is that we have done our best to ensure only those high quality photos and videos get shared, all while limiting the use of commercial content. Due to the limitations of Facebook, we were unable to use the group as a place for us to share any indepth travel stores. As a result, we've created this blog, where anyone can write about interesting travel related stories, and then share it with the Facebook group. Thank you for following us on our journey and look forward to reading your travel stories! Rick & Andrea
