Maralyn D Hill – Fall 2018 and 25 years ago Editor-in-Chief


Where and What in the World is a blog of extraordinary destinations, food and wine, spas, product and book reviews, travel topics and so much more! We welcome guest contributors, if you have an interesting story and like to write. Just send us a request via our submission page and we will send guidelines.



Posts/articles are generally positive. When negativity is encounter through products, books, restaurants, hotels, etc., we don’t waste our time giving them unwarranted publicity.

We take part in many media trips and often are taken to dinner. We write about what we like and strive to be objective in our evaluations, which reflects in articles featured.

On another note, we ourselves pay for many trips, dinners, products, wine, etc. that we feature. We simply enjoy writing about what we enjoy.

We do have some affiliate ads on our blogs. If someone clicks through and purchases, we receive a nominal amount. Our affiliate ads are from companies from which we have experienced good service ourselves.

If someone we reviewed favorably ever wants to run an ad, we would be delighted. Monetizing our website, without compromising our integrity, is highly desirable AND ethical.

As readers, if you ever feel an article is compromised, please let me know at (Tim, this could also be –whichever you think is best. The first one is shorter.)
