Sea kayaking in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska
Welcome, and let us take a minute to introduce ourselves. Jeff is a high school science, math, and business teacher, and Erin is a a school librarian and professional photographer. We live in Portland, Oregon, with our adorable cat, Bonkers, and we’ve spent nearly every summer of the last twenty plus years traveling and squeezed in a lot of travel weeks and weekends in between.
Our top travel goals are to visit every continent and every U.S. national park. So far, we’ve been to four continents (North America, Europe, Africa, and Australia) and 37 of our 58 amazing national parks. We just heard last week they’re about to add a 59th park, so we’d better get moving on that goal!
We love to meet new people and explore new places. We also believe that traveling makes people better stewards of our planet and better citizens of the world. We also know that traveling can be expensive and that most Americans have limited time for travel. We hope this blog will help you maximize both your time and your money as you travel and explore for a week or a weekend. We’d love to learn from your experiences as well, so leave us a note in the comments section and introduce yourself.
Enjoy your next travel adventure, whether it’s for a week or a weekend!
