the back story & where to begin

A Quick Rundown

Here’s the jest of it: My hubby, Dan, and I met in Arlington, Virginia. I got an opportunity to work in Germany in Spring 2013 and toted him along with me. I began this blog shortly after the move. We got married and traveled our hearts out (literally nonstop). Now we’ve back to our roots in Virginia and I help Europe-bound travelers by way of writing helpful content, custom itinerary planning services, Escape Guides and hosted trips (like Tuscany in October 2016!).

TRAVEL STORIES

When I began blogging in 2013 my purpose was simply to share my travel stories and photos with friends and family back home. Although my blog has since received over 1,000,000 page views since it’s inception, the underlying theme hasn’t changed. Enjoy!

BEHIND THE SCENES

Since 2013 my hubby and I have have gone up and down the rollercoaster of life (pardon the cliche) and I’ve shared our journey openly right here on the blog. My deepest gratitude goes out to my longtime readers that have been there for me as an ear and voice while we made some tough choices.

PHOTOGRAPHY & BLOGGING

Aside from being a crazy travel-loving lady, I also have a thing for photography, red wine and cookies. I often share tips and advice on the former on this space along with photo diaries.
