oh, hello there

We are a group of friends based in Seattle, Washington (with one friend holding down the mountain region in Nevada) who decided that there was far too much world to see than what we were seeing sitting at our desks. The 4 of us have made a habit out of escaping to our favorite cities together whenever we can. And it is awesome.

Our trips together began with the excuse of planning bachelorette party getaways in our 20’s, but now we’ve grown to love traveling together so much that we have incorporated our girlfriend getaways into our lives on a more frequent basis. Now in our 30’s, we are at different stages in our lives; some of us are mothers and business owners… Free time is rare, so we’ve gotten more and more savvy about planning, budgeting, and adventuring. We travel like it’s our job. Our kick-ass, pretend job, at least.

Our mission with this site is to inspire others to make memories by traveling together.  We’ll show you how.

MEET THE TEAM:

kristaDirector and Social Media Person /// Krista

When she’s not photographing weddings or workin’ on her non-profit, c’mon team!, Krista is daydreaming about where to go next. She can attest that nothing helps a person survive a gloomy Seattle winter like an escape to someplace sunny. A travel enthusiast, she feels strongly that the anticipation of the journey can be just as exciting as the destination itself.

 

jenni

Content Developer and Resident DJ /// Jen

Jen lives in Salt Lake City where she runs an architecture firm with her husband. When she’s not designing new buildings or hangin’ with her sweet daughter, she’s taking pictures of old ones using plastic lens cameras or hanging with her pet chickens.  When traveling, you can find her at your local coffee shop, yoga studio, or most likely, laying by the pool.

 

abby

Copy Editing Queen /// Abby

If there’s a kitchen where we’re going, you can find Abby in it. A semi-professional baker of cakes, pastries, and other goodies in her spare time, she’s right at home in a cloud of flour and powdered sugar. She’s also an avid quilter, because you can’t be awesome at only one grandma sport. During the week she manages a library of beautiful design materials at an architecture firm. Travel destinations include a walkable neighborhood or a pool with cocktail service!

She recently gave birth to baby #2, which makes her Super Woman in our book!
