About Me

Hi! I’m Kristen – a Minnesota-based travel writer. I’m originally from New York and was born and raised on Long Island. In 2011 I moved from Queens, New York to St. Cloud, Minnesota. Now, I’ve settled into the Twin Cities with my husband and our 3-year-old Newfoundland dog.

We love exploring Minnesota and all it has to offer. You can usually find me checking out Minnesota’s hidden gems by hiking, kayaking, and scouting out dog-friendly breweries and trails.
I hope to inspire you to explore Minnesota and plan your next adventure, big or small! Follow me on Instagram and subscribe to my newsletter so we can stay connected!
