The open road of Grand Teton National Park

Welcome

A couple of months ago, I hit the open road with a couple of friends to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks Service (more on that in later posts). With just a tent and a Nissan Maxima, we conquered the West. On our 25-hour trip home from Yellowstone National Park, I noticed that the one thing keeping us from pulling our hair out was the “Born in the 90s” playlist on Spotify. We screamed every word from the Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” to No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” and managed to drive straight home through the night.

And so I began to think.  We are the can-do generation. Us 90s kids have been told for years that we can be whatever we want to be and do whatever we want to do, but how many of us actually do that? We get so focused on following a specific life timeline that we forget that our possibilities are endless.

So I would like to change that. That’s why I’ve created this blog, so that my fellow millenials can explore their potential through the art of travel. Before you get all caught up in 401-Ks and health insurance plans, take a moment and jump on the Nostalgia Train. Remember when the highest stress levels we ever experienced were watching someone get slimed on Nickelodeon? Or when we spent hours running off our Baby Bottle Pop sugar-highs playing Power Rangers in the yard?

I’m not saying that we should all run out right now and rent “Good Burger” (although maybe we should, because that’s still a great movie), but let’s take a week or a month and do what we want to do. For me, that’s travel, and so here I’ll provide you with tips and tricks to seeing the world on a budget. Welcome to becoming all that we can be.

Bye, Bye, Bye,

Erica
