It all started when…

...I mentioned to my boyfriend of four years, Matt, that I really wanted to start a travel blog 'once I started traveling more often.' He said, 'Why wait? Start one now,' and here we are (now he says he's created a monster).

My travel style is more on the adventurous side. I'm a budget traveler (read: I'm broke), but that works really well for the kind of travel I like to do.

I love gorgeous hikes and beautiful views and picturesque towns (bonus points if the streets are cobbled or the houses are painted whimsical colors).

I blog here twice per week, and generally those two posts include one trip report on a specific location and one article that's great for travelers in general.

Theoretically, Matt will be contributing food posts when he's on tour doing mobile field marketing for his latest client. 

I live in New Jersey right across the bridge from Philadelphia with Matt and our three lovebugs: Puddle the Pug, Xena the Pug, and Maximus the (grumpy old rescue) Bulldog.

When I'm not on a grand adventure somewhere amazing, I try to bring the grand adventure vibe to the Mid Atlantic.
