Ellen

The way to my heart is food. I love having to drive somewhere and finding a hole in the wall restaurant that is amazing! I am food motivated so if you need my help, involve food. I have a dog who forces me to go exploring and I have the innate desire to travel. If money didn't matter, I would love to plan unique trips and experiences for everyone! And all these experience come from hidden research and my own personal travels!

Stephanie

Hi there! I'm Stephanie, an environmental educator, mama of twins, and avid traveler. In 2020, I made a New Year's resolution to take one day trip a month with my husband and twins to explore our home region of Southeast Minnesota. I plan the trips and take the family along with me on our "adventures". I like learning about the history of a place, my husband is a foodie, and we both like outdoor attractions and exploring local shops. Plus with our 1-year old boy/girl twins, family-friendly is key. Enjoy!
