Keeping the Adventure Alive while Working the 9 to 5

Hello, I'm Kristin!

New Englander, designer,

travel planner and adventurer.

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.

I grew up with parents who were both self-employed so we took our one week vacation a year, and made the most of it! As I got older I realized that there were opportunities for adventure outside of the one vacation per year. 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.
