Hi, I’m Claudia!


My travel quest for the next two years is to go to 55 countries by the time I turn 55, and share my adventures with you!

I love to travel! Adventure and exploring new places, meeting new people and wandering the world are my biggest passions. I also adore my home, beautiful Durango, Colorado, where I play in the snow all winter, hike with our dogs and raft the rivers in the summer. My husband and I are recent empty nesters and inspired by our kids flying the coop.

I’ve started traveling more again since I turned 50 in 2016. While I enjoy traveling with friends and family, I often travel solo. I’m passionate about travel without breaking the bank or burning through our retirement funds. I do like some creature comforts every once in a while but truly love outdoorsy and adventurous trips on a shoestring budget.

I hope this blog inspires you to explore new places and follow your passions. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media!

Love Claudia
