Scott and I have traveled all over the United States, and together have visited 35+ countries. Traveling and exploring new places and cultures is one of my very favorite things to do!
I’ve only just begun documenting our trips, but I have a feeling this page is going to start filling up fast. Below you will find highlights from the places I’ve been since I started blogging in 2012.
