I’m really excited to interview Victoria Greene of TORsAdventures and Travel like a Billionaire about Whidbey Island, Washington. Victoria’s tips for the best things to do in Whidbey Island are awesome because she moved to Whidbey Island after her husband was stationed there with the Navy and quickly fell in love with the island’s natural beauty.
