Embracing Wanderlust

I’m Cait, and to say that I have the travel bug is an understatement. Growing up, I was that kid who would call out “I’m bored” in the car on their way home from Six Flags. Although I did some decent traveling with my family as a kid, it wasn’t until after college that I really started to embrace my wanderlust. 

After college, I began my teaching career working 10 hour days while also going to grad school. I saved up, paid off my loans, and so began my travels. In 2014 I set a goal to visit at least one new place a year. By 2015, I had visited 5 US national parks, 6 new countries and at least 15 new cities. I clearly needed a more ambitious goal. 2014 also marks the year that I picked up and moved to Maryland, met my amazing husband, Chris, and started dragging him along on my adventures.

Travel quickly became an obsession. I often have multiple trips planned at a time. By the time we get back from one trip, the next one is ready to be booked. While I have many places on my bucket list, I have a special place in my heart for the national parks right here in this amazing country. So, Chris and I set a goal to see every one of the 59 US National Parks! Join us on our journey by following us on Instagram and Facebook.

See what we have in store for 2018!
