About us

DayTripper is a travel blog that doesn’t believe a vacation should cost a lot of money. You just need a sense of adventure!



My name is Jenn and I used to hate being stuck at home, living through other people’s Instagram feeds. That all changed when I started traveling over 7 years ago. But let me tell you, traveling doesn’t always have to involve expensive flights and exotic destinations. 

I’ve learned that adventure can be found right in your own backyard. Whether it’s exploring a nearby hiking trail or trying out a new restaurant in town, there’s always something to discover. And I’ve found that having a vacation mindset can make all the difference in how much you enjoy your time off.

For me, there’s nothing quite like being out in nature and feeling the peace and tranquility it brings. I love the feeling of being able to break away from the hustle and noise of daily life and just enjoy the beauty of the world around us. 

But I also enjoy exploring new places and taking in all the sights, sounds, and flavors of different cities. There’s something thrilling about immersing yourself in a new culture and experiencing everything it has to offer. Whether we’re trying new foods, visiting museums, or just wandering around to see what we stumble upon, there’s always something new to discover.

Of course, I wouldn’t be able to do any of this without my wonderful family by my side. We’ve created countless memories together and I’m grateful every day for the love and support they provide. They inspire me to always stay curious and never stop exploring. So here’s to many more adventures and all the joy they bring!
