About Me

IMG_3547I am a 30 something woman who loves to travel.

The name of the blog came to me after purchasing a stuffed giraffe in Copenhagen and designating him as a travel buddy. His name is Rasputin. He’s not much of a conversationalist, but he does sometimes help start conversations with strangers, I guess that means he’s doing a good job.

My love of travel started in my 20s when I took my first cruise with a good friend, then another with my family. After that I decided to explore the world alone, well, sort of.  I took a Contiki tour and my life hasn’t been the same since.  Since then I’ve become almost obsessed with travel and exploring new destinations.  Since then I’ve taken 5 more Contiki tours, several more cruises and done some independent travel.

My favorite place: Egypt

My most beautiful place: Hawaii


Today I enjoy traveling the US, Europe and anywhere else I can get myself to.  I’m also looking to do an Around the World trip starting in 2019 and am always trying to formulate what I want to do and where I want to go on that trip.

While I’ll blog about anything related to travel, I try to focus on topics like solo travel, family travel, taking tours, and tips and tricks I have learned through the years.
