Hi, I’m Kelly!

I’m a travel blogger currently located in the United States. I’ve been travel blogging since 2018. Over the years I’ve traveled to 6 continents and 24 countries. I used to live in Spain, and I speak both English and Spanish. 

Within the United States, I’ve traveled to 36 states. I’ve lived on both the East and West coasts, so I’ve gotten to see much of the United States! (I’ve even driven across the entire United States multiple times!) 

Living in Spain definitely fueled my passion for travel. With Europe at my finger tips, I spent many weekends backpacking through Italy, France, and Portugal.

For me, the best part of traveling was the relationships that I formed. The host family that I lived with in Spain really became a second family to me. I’ve been back to visit them more times than I count. I also met 5 of my best friends while living in Spain, and we have been friends for nearly 20 years! Traveling really transformed my life, and I hope to share a passion for travel with you as well.

I decided to name this blog Our Adventure Journal after a leather-bound journal that my husband and I use to document our journeys. When we first started dating, we created an Adventure List that contained all the adventures we hoped to share together. We started writing about our adventures (and misadventures!) in a journal for us to remember the details of our trips together. This online blog is an extension of that journal. 

Countries and States Visited

I still have a lot of work to do to write about all of these places, so only a portion of these are written up on the blog. Here’s the snapshot of where I have been so far.
