    Hi, I’m Tina! A Norwegian girl who is currently balancing life as a student, work in healthcare and this hobby of mine called travel. Hiking and dinosaurs are my favorites. Oh, and I also like beer.

    Favorite thing about my hometown Bodø, Norway:
    The beautiful mountains that surround this little city.

    My favorite travel destination so far:
    Vietnam. The people, the scenery, the food! Love love love.

    A destination I keep going back to:
    New York City.. My second home.

    Hi, I’m Sam! I am a Detroiter who loves cats, books, gin and travel! I work as an Executive Assistant at a big ‘ol Detroit company, but the best thing about my job is all the time it allows me to travel. My favorite adventures include forests, mountains and any city that has a story to tell. I’m super awkward, but there is a good chance I’ll make you laugh. I’ve always got a book in hand and trip planning on my mind.

    Favorite thing about my hometown Detroit, USA:
    The soul of this city.

    My favorite travel destination so far:
    That is a tough one. It’s a close race between Scotland and Iceland!

    Hi, I’m Courtney and I like long walks down the wine aisle. All kidding aside (or am I?)… I’m a yoga teacher and a lifestyle photographer with a passion for traveling that I can definitely thank my parents (and our 7-passenger conversion van equipped with 10” TV with VCR) for. My favorite adventures include hiking, eating and drinking.

    Favorite thing about my hometown Detroit, USA:
    It’s spirit and revival.

    My favorite travel destination so far:
    Iceland.

    A destination I keep going back to:
    Las Vegas (but not The Strip!)

    How We Met

    Now, you may be wondering how the heck a girl from a tiny Norwegian city ended up starting a travel blog with two best friends from Detroit. Yeah? Well, you’re not the only one. Wherever we travel together, people ask us how we know each other. And that question never gets easier to answer! Let’s give it another go:

    Samantha and Courtney have been best friends since they met in their High School English class and bonded over reading, writing & Starbucks’ Frappuccinos. In 2007, Tina’s childhood friend Frida moved to Detroit as an exchange student and became close friends with both Samantha and Courtney. The following year, Samantha visited Frida in Bodø and was introduced to Tina at a party and they instantly clicked. In 2010, Frida and Tina moved to New York City to attend college, and over spring break they went to Detroit, where Courtney and Tina got a chance to know each other.

    Complicated, right? We warned you. Bottom line is that we all have a blast together, and we meet up every chance we get – usually whilst exploring a new country.



    We hope you enjoy our travel blog! Happy reading xx
