About Us

When you travel, things don’t always work out the way you expect. Sometimes that’s good, and sometimes it’s not; you know, like when you lose the brakes on your rental car just as you’re driving into a herd of goats.* You have to learn to laugh about it, and we do—all the time. When we’ve shared our tales, it seems like everyone else laughs, too, so we’ve decided to create a website dedicated to our wanderings. We really believe that every road tells a story—and we’re not too embarrassed to share them.

*No goats or other animals were harmed in the making of this website.

Road Tripper. Travel diva. Dog rescuer. Writes for food or kibbles and bits. Based out of Pittsburgh, PA, via Juneau, AK, Vanessa Orr has been a freelance writer and editor for more than 25 years. An avid traveler, she always brings home amazing memories—and often more dogs. Willing to jump in the Jeep or on a plane at a moment’s notice, some of her most memorable adventures include visiting the “naked spa” in Germany on co-ed day, bonding with rescued animals at a bare-bones shelter in Caye Caulker, Belize, and feeding Little Debbie snack cakes to some really big bears outside Charleston, WV.
