My name is Lisa and I am a Chicago native, but now reside in the Pacific Northwest. I live to travel and get on an airplane every chance I get. I work in the tourism industry so I get the opportunity to see both sides of travel. I want to share my tips, tricks, and adventures with everyone. I was inspired to start this blog by all the people who would ask how do you find the time or have the money and the people who would ask why in the world would you go to ________. I want to show the world than anyone can travel and that sometimes the most unlikely places make the best vacations.
