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 and want to get back to travel as something to help me learn about the world and people. It seems to help me with this disorder.
