Hi Katie,

Just wanted to let you know that I love your blog! Your posts are full of energy and humor and your photos are fantastic! I look forward to reading more. So do you have any new trips planned?


Thank you!! I was planning a solo road trip to Texas (from NC) this summer (I know, not as exciting as Iceland or Argentina), but that has been put on hold because my husband is desperately wanting to visit his sister, who’s currently living in Spain. And, although it’s not at the top of my list, I can’t say I’d complain about Spain. ;) Now we just have to see if we can make it work financially (and maybe squeeze in a side road trip to Portugal…) What can I say? I love my road trips.

Don't be shy... tell me what you think!
