Work with me

Hi there!

My name is Michele, and I am obsessed with travel. I did not learn to travel until after college, and I often meet new friends who are inspired to go out on their own adventures in towns they have grown up in after seeing me explore them with new eyes and an open mind. If you would like to read more about me and my story, you can do so here.

My goal here is to make the daunting task of living a travel-focused life more accessible by opening my readers’ horizons to the opportunities for adventures all around – both locally and in new places they have yet to visit.

I focus on being a tourist in your own town, getting out into nature by hiking or other outdoor activities, sustainable tourism, and doing all of this with a savvy budget in mind.

I am currently based in Philadelphia, PA, but am open to travel all around the US and the Americas, and I would love the opportunity to collaborate with you. If you think we would be a good fit, then please reach out to Michele (at)  If you have something in mind not listed below, feel free to reach out and we can discuss your proposal.
