Over the last three years, Ordinary Traveler has become one of the leading adventure travel and photography blogs. Christy & Scott have been traveling the world together since 2006, surfing and taking photos along the way.
This duo met in 2006 and decided life is too short to do something you don't love. They started Ordinary Traveler in 2010 to chronicle their travels and share their love of photography.
During an extended stay in Southeast Asia, they realized they love their home base in coastal San Diego too much to be permanent nomads, so they are learning how to juggle living a "normal" life at home, traveling the world and running several online businesses.
One of their most recent business projects, where they designed a revolutionary surf bikini, was built from a love of adventure and surfing. You can learn more about this venture by watching the video below.
How can this site help you?
Our website focuses on helping YOU get inspired, sharing travel tips, and teaching budding photographers how to take the best travel photos from travelers with nearly 20 years experience in the photography field.
We want to inspire everyone to travel the world, (even if you work a full-time job!) because you don't have to quit your job to travel the world.
Whether your goals are to travel the world, face your fears, or build a business based on your passions, you can make it happen as long as you are motivated and committed to making yourself happy.
We have been all over the world, exploring a combination of cities and natural wonders in each country we visit. You will find that many of the destinations covered on this blog are near an ocean with waves since surfing is one of our biggest loves and it goes hand in hand with travel.
Our travels have taken us to some of the worlds best surfing spots and tropical destinations. You can follow our tropical adventures to see which sunny destinations we can't get enough of.
