Hi… I’m the Southerner… Lori. I’m a traveler, wanderer, road tripper, taco lover and photographer. Born and raised in the south, I call Atlanta, Georgia home.
Traveling for years, planning trips and taking notes, I’ve been to sixteen countries, forty five states, twenty National Parks and driven thousands of miles. My type of travel is eclectic at best. You might find me in a tent one week and a five star hotel the next. I love planes and airports almost as much as I love driving and dirt roads.
You also might find me south of the border. When I was fifteen, I went on a school trip to Mexico and fell in love. To this day, I still love all things Latin. The food, culture, music and the language.
My goal in creating this blog is to help other people travel by providing authentic travel ideas, tips and budgets. You don’t have to quit your job. Travel doesn’t have to be expensive or extended to be beneficial. It doesn’t even have to be to the most popular, trendy places. What’s important is the people we meet and the experiences we gain. That’s the difference between a tourist and a traveler and I want to help you be a traveler.
Since you are here, feel free to introduce yourself, say hi and tell me where you like to travel. I look forward to hearing from you!
