    When I was in college, listening to my friends talk about their dreams of backpacking through Europe like the Gilmore Girls and trying to figure out how to afford it, I realized there was a lot left to see in our own backyard. I set a goal for myself to visit all 50 U.S. states while I was young and had flexibility. I successfully achieved that goal at the age of 27 in February of 2023. This blog is a journal of my adventures. Enjoy 🙂
