Our Story & Mission

Alexandra and Dani hiking at Bell Rock.

Hey, I'm Dani (on the left) and this is my wife Alexandra (on the right)! Even though we love to travel various times throughout the year, our home base is the midwestern United States. We both love the outdoors whether it is on a hike, run, with our pets or touring a new place we discovered when taking a wrong turn on a road trip.

It is amazing how much you have yet to discover, even in your own back yard!

We love hiking and road trips so much we thought we would create this site dedicated to just that. As avid hikers, road trippers, and travelers, we wanted a platform to share our experiences and bring together other hikers and travelers.

Here you will read everything from hiking tips, experiences and gear reviews to entire road trip itineraries. Everything on this site isn't written only by us and we want to create a space where all wanderers are welcome to share their tips and stories as well.

So if you have a great travel/road tip story, hiking experiences to share, big accomplishments and anything outdoors related - drop us an email at hikingandroadtrips@gmail.com or fill out this form.

With so much negativity in the world today, let's embrace the beauty that still lies beneath, #getoutside and explore!
