About Minnie

My name is Minnie and I currently live in southern Illinois. By day, I am a mental health counselor and I am on a journey to push myself beyond my comfort zone at times, try new experiences, and find as many bucket list adventures that I can mark off as possible!! I have been checking experiences off my bucket list since 2015 and I am finally taking that leap to try to help others live their lives to the fullest through travel.

My Passion for Travel

So how did I get started with this? After finishing 7 years of college and 2 years of required supervised hours for my counseling license, I wanted... I mean let's get real here-- I needed to get away for a while. My first real journey into itinerary creation, finding amazing food, and amazing experiences was in 2015. I created my own itinerary that year for an 18 day road trip. I drove from Missouri down the Oregon and California coast to Disneyland and back.

Ever since that 18 day solo road trip, I have continued adding to my bucket list and letting my sense of wanderlust lead me on my journeys. Nowadays, I am married to my better half, Jesse. We travel the world together and I jokingly say that everywhere is on my bucket list, but my list is more about unforgettable experiences! I create itineraries, seek out budget friendly foodie finds, and find as many bucket list experiences as I can in each place I visit. I hope that I can inspire you to try something new and get outside your comfort zone.
