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.

Campsite Comparisons: September Edition
I’m back with another campsite comparisons post! The campsite comparison post I wrote discussed the variety of one night stays we had from Florida to Iowa on the first 10 days of our trip.

Each location had it’s unique pros and cons but all of them were perfect opportunities to enjoy the areas we stayed in.
