Hi, I’m Mollie. I started traveling when I was young, and my parents would throw our small clan into the RV and hit the road. From those summers spent across the American West, I fell in love with outdoor adventure and the thrill of being somewhere new. I’ve traveled extensively throughout North America, and lived in both Europe and Asia. I am a lover of all things nature and outdoors, so most of my adventures are focused on those great hikes, dives, and kayak voyages that make your heart soar with the beauty of the world around us. I’ve always used blogs and travel accounts to help me plan my next journey, and now it is time for me to give back what I’ve learned, so we can all get out there and experience this beautiful place!

Content Writer, Managing Editor

Hi! I’m Alex. I love traveling to new places and learning about the local history and culture. I’ve traveled around the Caribbean and Europe, taking in the sights, sounds and tastes with friends and family. My destination preferences tend to be bustling cities, and I’m more of a restaurant researcher than an outdoor adventurer, but I’ve learned to love a good hike. Visiting a new city is always difficult on a budget (especially if you want to try all the local food!), but I always do heavy research on a place before I go to find the best deals, and I’m excited to share what I’ve learned along the way, so that everyone can get out and explore our amazing world!
