Realizing Your Travel Bucket List, One Adventure at a Time.

Welcome to Cultivate Traveling! I’m Becky, your friendly travel blogger. After beating Inflammatory Breast Cancer, I’ve dedicated myself to helping others check destinations off their bucket lists and make the most of every moment.

As a passionate scrapbooker, photographer, and organizer, I pour my heart into creating detailed itineraries and guides based on my real-life travels across the globe with my husband of 30 years.

Through candid stories and tips, I hope to inspire you to get out and explore, whether it’s a dream trip abroad or a cozy weekend road trip close to home.

Together, we’ll wander through the magic of Maui, my happy place and our annual winter escape. We’ll dive into the history of London, my favorite European city, and the idyllic English countryside. I can’t wait to share this journey with you from Cinque Terre to Asia and beyond!

While I’m not a pro photographer, you’ll find authentic snapshots from my trips throughout the blog to make you feel right there with me. This is a judgment-free zone – let’s spread positivity and motivate each other to keep crossing off bucket list destinations. If you ever want to chat about travel, don’t hesitate to reach out!
