Travel has been a passion as long as I can remember. I have unique tastes in travel – I love the outdoors and adventure travel, but love to end a rugged dirty trip at a nice hotel, preferably with a spa and some room service! For this reason, a lot of my travel is solo. I have friends who love luxury hotels and friends who love camping, but rarely both! Backpackers are notoriously frugal – after a week trip on Isle Royale, over half the group opted not to spend $6 for a shower, so a 5-star hotel and spa day is definitely out of the question with that crowd! I also love exploring dog-friendly destinations with my rescued Airedale Terrier, Bailey.
Bailey and I are currently Chicago-based and enjoy lots of road trips around the Midwest, and try to make an annual trip to the mountains of Colorado. We love exploring the streets of Chicago, too!
