Welcome to your home for achieving your travel goals!
I’m your host, Anastasia. I started this blog as “50 states by 25” when I was still in college and was on a mission to visit all 50 states before my 25th birthday. I’ll let you read through the website to find out if I’ve hit my goal or not.
I started the blog because I came to the sad realization that I had all these dreams about international travel but I had hardly even seen my own country! I knew that by not only setting my goal but by making it public, I’d HAVE to see all 50 states before setting off to explore the rest of the world.
This journey has given me a much greater appreciation for what makes America, well…America. It’s also given me a greater appreciation for looking for the “small” and unexpected things while traveling, instead of only hitting the major tourist attractions.
My hope is that this blog will inspire you to do the same.
Welcome to the club!
