Ordinary Traveler is an award-winning adventure travel and lifestyle blog, written by Christy Woodrow and Scott Calafiore. In 2010, they created Ordinary Traveler to chronicle their travels and share their love of photography.
Over the past 11 years, Ordinary Traveler has grown tremendously and it’s now one of the top travel blogs, offering useful travel advice and tips on balancing a home life with extreme wanderlust.
Over the past several years, we have taken a deep dive into our personal healing. Scott is now a transformational life coach and Christy is a hypnotherapist and virtual retreat host (you can check out The Unfolding Virtual Retreat here!).
In addition to writing about our adventurous and off-the-beaten-path travels, we share our personal stories of healing and growth on the blog — as well as suggestions for those looking for spiritual travel opportunities.
What’s Behind The Name Ordinary Traveler?
When we started Ordinary Traveler in 2010, many of the popular travel blogs were written by permanent, or soon-to-be permanent, nomads. They got a lot of press, which gave the impression that this was the preferred way to travel.
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. That’s the idea behind the name Ordinary Traveler.
How can this site help you?
On the internet, every day, we are flooded with the truly extraordinary. We are conditioned to believe that “exceptional” is the new normal, which can leave people feeling pretty insecure.
The truth is, you don’t need to be born with extreme talent to do what you love. Don’t let the fear that you are not talented enough stop you from fulfilling your dreams. The trick to living the life of your dreams is dedication and hard work.
