Who Am I?
Hi! My name is April. I love romance and I love travel.
Over the past 30 years, I’ve had the opportunity to visit and live all over the world. During my travels, I met hundreds of couples who fell in love and were exploring the planet together. I, too, have dated (and for several years, was married to) a man I met abroad.
Today, with the huge explosion of online dating sites you no longer have to hope that you might meet someone at your local coffee shop; your soulmate can be anywhere in the world!
But this site isn’t only about my journey to find love; it’s a place where singles and people in relationships can share their stories about romance and travel, long-distance love, solo traveler safety tips, travel hacking, budget tips and tricks, and “catfish” confessions where people share their embarrassing yet often hilarious experiences with online dating disasters.
If you're seeking more passion and romance and you're filled with wanderlust, join us!

A trip to London AND Paris for $500, including flights, accommodations, and food? Seriously. People usually tell me they wish they could travel to some of the amazing places I go to but they insist they can't afford it. I insist that they can. At least, you can if you...read more

I have never liked the label "Cougar". I despise the term. It is not a compliment for a mature woman of a certain age to be compared to a jungle animal. And yet, I am here today to share with you my "Cougar Confessions". I'm embarrassed to admit that I may have, ahem,...read more
I secretly love bars with nasty, vulgar, dirty names. Perhaps it's because I'm always trying to be the "good girl"; not swearing like a sailor (at least, not in front of my mother), not dancing on tables at clubs (anymore), not dating twins (although if I WAS guilty,...read more
