About The Guest(s)

Brianne started her blog in the summer of 2015 with the goal of encouraging professionals to take time away from their busy lives to travel. She wanted to share stories of those of us who have responsibilities like jobs, homes, pets, as well as spouses and children, yet still make travel a priority to inspire others to do so too. Brianne is also very committed to travelling as sustainably as possible. For her that means supporting responsible companies by doing her research, leaving a light environmental footprint wherever she goes, and ensuring her tourist dollars stay within local communities by avoiding chain hotels and restaurants.
