Welcome!

Hi! I’m Chelsea, I grew up in a military family and continue the tradition now as a military spouse. I’ve lived all over the world and look forward to sharing with you my travel knowledge and ability to plan seamless trips that maximize your budget and time. I’ve traveled to over 30 countries (lived in four) and now continue those adventures with my son and husband. I hope we inspire you to pack more into life and enjoy some adventures with your family. 

 We aren’t full-time travelers, although we are thinking about taking a gap year when my husband retires from the military. However, we’ve realized that we prefer memories over “stuff”, so we travel as frequently as possible.
