I 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.
