Here and There

About Me

I’m so excited that you’ve found my website! Starting a travel blog has been a dream of mine for quite a while as traveling is one of my biggest passions in life. But first, how about a little bit about me?

My name is LJ and I was born and raised in Minnesota. I still live there with my wonderful fiancé Zack, dog Koda, and cat Trixie. In addition to traveling, I am very into running and SCUBA diving. 


My mom really instilled a love for exploring new places by taking me on trips from a young age. I love how each country/state/region is never what I expect it to be; really showing me just how little I know about the world. I started this site as a way to document my own adventures, but also to help other travelers who might be thinking about taking their first trip but don’t know where to start or those just curious in finding information from a new source. Every time I come back from a big trip I get asked how I plan my trips. I don’t go through a travel agency. I do everything on my own. A lot of research, budgeting, and planning goes into making a trip go smoothly. So, I hope you are able to find some helpful information here!
