Living life in Motion. Travel planner, writer, nomad.

Hi there, I’m Kristin!

I never took the opportunity to study abroad in college, but by the time I realized that I had a real passion for travel, I was already stuck in a 9-5 career with limited vacation time.

Growing up, I was accustomed to the 1 week vacation a year lifestyle. As I got older I realized that there were SO many more opportunities for adventure outside of the yearly vacation. Every weekend is an opportunity to adventure, every day is an opportunity for a day trip, every detour is an opportunity to explore a new place. I quickly found out that adventures didn’t have to be lavish to be enjoyable.

Experiencing the Everglades by Water
Everglades National Park is nicknamed the River of Grass for good reason: with so much of the park being remote and accessible by water only, you’ll need a boat of some sort to really be able to explore it! There are ample opportunities to rent stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, and even motorboats in the park, just make sure you pack your dry bag!
10 Can’t-Miss Experiences at Badlands National Park
Badlands National Park is a unique area of South Dakota and is home to some amazing wildlife, otherworldly landscapes, and American history.

Here are 10 can’t-miss experiences to make the most of your time during your visit to the Badlands.
An Alluring Visit to Grand Teton National Park
We quickly fell in love with Grand Teton National Park when we arrived and ended up staying for a full week despite our original plans to only stay for a couple of days. When we set out on our cross-country adventure, the Tetons were merely a park to check off the list. We didn’t know anything about this park at all, we just knew it was worth visiting prior to heading into Yellowstone National Park! Little did we know that it would remain one of our favorites to this day.
