This site started as a family travel site while my husband and I homeschooled our kids and traveled with his job. That was ten years ago, the site has morphed from a journal about our lives to a valuable asset that offers travel inspiration for the budget-minded.
Some of the Topics You'll Find at Travel Inspired Living Include
While we have many interests that may pop up from time to time, you'll find the bulk of the content here at Travel Inspired Living is focused on road trips throughout the United States and things to see and do on those trips. Here's what you can expect to see:
Van camping is a wonderful alternative to tent camping or traveling in an RV. It's very affordable and you can pretty much park anywhere. We're currently developing a series on van camping in both our minivan and our Dodge Promaster Ram.
As empty-nesters, my husband and I have the opportunity to experience romantic getaways throughout the Midwest and beyond. Here are some of our favorites with ideas to help you plan your own romantic getaway.
We also share a bit of adventure travel like the time we learned how to Hang Glide in the Outer Banks at the World’s Largest Hang Gliding School but I'll be honest. We're the most adventurous when the kids are with us.
