I've lived in Northern Kentucky area for 14 years, across the border from Cincinnati, OH and love sharing great locations for anyone to make life a little more extraordinary. I focus on cheap and unpopular/obscure locations with occasional splurges.
Yes, I have white privilege and acknowledge I had things others don't.
But I also work hard to make travel possible by
A) Not having kids
B) Not spending anything on material things (Netflix, new shoes). Literally I have had the same tennis shoes for at least 5 years.
C)Not buying furniture. I don't have a couch at all.
In other words, I spend everything on travel and food. Sometimes art things.
I come from an AirForce family so travel has been in my blood since I was little. Along my life, though, I've developed Social Anxiety Disorder/Bipolar. I find that Art, Travel, and Conversation are the three most healing with these two setbacks.
