And So It Begins…

That’s a pretty dramatic title for the first post in a travel blog, but a tiny amount of drama is festive, right? Let’s get right to it – I’m Jeff, I live in Minneapolis, MN, and I love to travel! Though I’d love to make travel and/or travel writing a job (hint hint, Frommer’s and Rick Steves), I haven’t managed to make that happen yet, so I travel for fun outside of work. I generally get in one international trip each year as well as a least one or two other trips, usually within the US. I’m game to travel anywhere, but I have a particular affinity for the UK – I love London!

Join me on my trips as I post updates, share photos, and more. I’d love to hear from fellow travelers, whether you’re a recreational traveler like me or you’ve been around the world in 80 days (or even less!).

Happy trails!

  1. Hi Jeff! I live in the Twin Cities too. Not too long ago I made that big move accross the river from MPLS to St. Paul.
    I’m a travel nut too. At the end of the year my husband and I are packing our bags and traveling around the world for a year.
    I’m hooked on travel blogs right now as I’m mapping out our adventures.
    Looking forward to seeing where you go next.
    Happy travels!

  2. Thanks Kristin! I must say, I am completely envious of your plan – that sounds amazing! Look for some additional posts from me very soon regarding my upcoming trip as well as recaps of some of my past trips. Hopefully that will help you in your trip planning! Are you going to keep a separate travel blog or just use your current one? I’d love to keep up your adventure!
