Who is Ordinary Traveler?

In 2009, we created Ordinary Traveler to chronicle our travels and share our love of photography. Over the past 6 years, this site has grown tremendously and is now one of the top travel and lifestyle blogs -- offering useful travel advice and vacation ideas.

Not everyone wants to quit their job and sell all their possessions to travel. People who want a family, a home, and an adventurous life are the “ordinary” people we strive to connect with and inspire. Our goal is to help others find a balance between a healthy home life and wanderlust.
