About

Hello I am Cassondra. This is where I share my tips, tricks and tales from the road.

I have a 4 year old son and he travels with me, wherever we go, so far he’s been to 14 countries and counting. We’ve done a lot of island hopping, road trips and round-the-world travels. As well as, exploring my home state of Michigan, it’s a gorgeous place to live!

The Back Story 

In 2014, I set a new life goal. I wanted to see the world and my 9-5 job wasn’t allowing me the freedom to travel. In two weeks time, I sold everything that didn’t fit in my car, paid my lease off on my apartment, resigned from my job and set out to explore the world!

This lead to nearly 5 years of full time travel. Covering 3 continents, 20+ countries and half of the United States. 

For nearly a decade, I lived and worked seasonally on Mackinac Island, from April to October. I spent my summers on the most magical one-of-a-kind island in Northern Michigan. For the other 6 months of the year, like a Snow-bird, I went south to my winter home in Jamaica.

The seasonal jobs on Mackinac Island, gave me the ability to travel full-time every winter. It was really an amazing opportunity, I would always recommend it to anyone itchy to try something new! Unfortunately, I retired from Mackinac Island in 2018.  I always miss waking up on Mackinac Island and working at the amazing hotels.

I’m an open book when it comes to travel – I’ll drive, fly, cruise, dive – whatever it takes to get there. I feel the world is there to be discovered.

I’m glad you are here and I hope you find something useful to help you on your journey. If you have any questions, let me know, I’d love to help however possible.

XOXO
