Meet the Travelers

We are Billie Frank and Steve Collins your Santa Fe experts. We’ve been on the road together, one way or another, since 1973. We are passionate about food, travel and our home-town, Santa Fe, New Mexico. We each bring a unique perspective to our experiences. We are very different people and yet, we can complete each other sentences. Our blog allows us to share the things we love with you.
