HI Travel Tales combines Michael Hodgson’s and Therese Iknoian’spassion for travel, love of product, joy in writing, and pleasure in inspiring others to get out, do, see and be. From urban outings and historical ganders to impromptu picnics or active and athletic global adventures, we go up and down mountains, saunter city streets, and look for the side road less traveled. Those tales are shared by our own stories, photographs, slide shows and art.

Our product reviews, founded on decades of gear testing, focus on helping fellow adventurous souls discover the best, lightest, safest, greatest-looking, most multifunctional, organized and fun products out there – all to make travel more enjoyable and easier.

We want to share what we love and have done for decades … because travel done right opens a window to the soul.
