Hi, my name is Karina, I’m going into the 7th grade in the state of Tennessee, and two things I love are writing and visiting new places. And although you may think traveling is just for adults, it’s for kids, too, so that’s why I’ve decided to start blogging about my adventures and the trips I take with my parents and siblings. So, before I start blogging, I’ll give you a little background info so you somewhat know what my life is like. First off, I’m just a regular kid who goes to a typical middle school. I love history, writing, and of course travel. I mostly got the travel bug from my mom, who coincidentally writes some of the other articles on the adult Travel Goal Getter blog. Now, I don’t want you to get the impression that I’m constantly traveling around the world, I’ve never been out of the U.S., but I have been to 31 states. But even though I haven’t traveled the world-yet- my family does travel fairly often. `I vacation with my parents, two brothers and sister. Also, please note that while most families’ definitions of “vacation” means the regular beach, the majority of our family vacations are a trip to some state we haven’t been to before, and we almost never fly-driving is more of our forte. Anyway, that’s about all of my background. So whether you are a kid, tween, or teen, I hope you are inspired by my blog to make your family car trips or flights more than just boring rides!
