A little about Heather
I am a single mom of a tenacious 9-year-old and live on the Central Coast in San Luis Obispo County. I was born and raised in the MidWest, but always had a strong connection to California. After graduating from the University of Kansas with a degree in creative writing, I answered the question "if you could move anywhere, where would you go?" by moving to the Central Coast.
Though my life's goal is to visit every country in the world, I plan to make the Central Coast my home base. No matter where I go or how long I'm gone, I'll come back here.
I love to travel, to explore, experience life around the globe. I solo, with friends and with my daughter. I have scuba dived in the Sea of Japan, gone camping in Russia, explored countless foreign cities on my own, and just keep on opening the next door. I hope to share a little of what I experience and learn with you.
In this blog I will share with you the trips I take with my daughter, the trips I take solo (or with my friends), the food we eat (we're gluten- and dairy-free, so we are always seeking out food that can eat, but I'll also share food specific to the area to which we are traveling), the wine I taste and the adventures we take. I'm definitely a bit of a rougher traveler than many people I know, so there will be a mix of posts about staying in hostels, Airbnbs or Homestays, cheap hotels, nice hotels, resorts and camping.
