Hello world & welcome!

imageWell hello & welcome to my blog! My name is Kristen Howell and I’m excited to share my adventures with you! Let me introduce myself a little: I love travelling, the outdoors, animals {especially giraffes}, reading, mac & cheese, waterfalls, and anything purple. I am also somewhat of a thrill seeker. I moved around growing up, but I call Alabama home. Three years ago I moved from my ‘home’ state to Orlando, Florida leaving behind family & great friends. I love sharing my experiences with them, so I’m creating this blog not only as a diary of my travels and adventures, but also so my family & friends can keep up with me. I plan on travelling more in the upcoming future and want to record all of my adventures here. Hopefully others will be inspired by my travels and add some things to their bucket lists!

Since I moved a lot growing up, I have a yearning to go new places and meet new people. The longest time I’ve lived in the same place has been 5 years. I love moving! In fact, after two years in the same spot I begin to get fidgety & wonder what’s next. My dream is to spend my life exploring. I want to get out and see new sights for my heart to fall in love with, learn about other cultures, religion, and have new experiences. I want to fill my life with adventures.

Of course, being in a city longer than a couple of years has its perks. I am just now exploring all Florida has to offer and slowly checking off places/experiences on my list. Since I live in an area where tourists visit year round, I have friends who come visit me year round and they always ask for recommendations on what to do and where to go. I have a lot of information to share & I think this blog will help others see what else there is to do in the area besides the theme parks.

Here’s what you can expect from this blog: I will be writing about the places I’ve been to since I moved to Florida, the preparation for my upcoming trips, and how I’ve changed the way I live since travel is now my main priority. As far as my travels go, inside the U.S. I have been to 25 states. Outside of the U.S. I’ve been to Mexico, the Bahamas, China, and Spain. I have my top destination lists below. I can’t wait to start checking some things off my list and I hope you’ll be sharing my adventures with me!

Let the travels & adventures begin!
