Welcome to That Trip Didn’t Suck.

I’m Amy. Midwest born. Traveler. Blogger. Teacher. Musician. Photographer. Artist. Athlete. Dog mom.

My parents and grandparents were always dragging me on a trip as a child. As an adult, I really fell in love with traveling. In my short, near-forty years, I’ve been to all 50 states; 29 countries; over 100 National Park sites and parks; and 1000s of state parks, museums, tourist attractions, and hidden gems. Most of my travels and trips have been amazing, and I’m so excited to share them all with you so your next trip doesn’t suck!

My blog is a little bit of everything and a little bit of lagniappe (one of my favorite words!): travel stories, how to save $, no frills trip itineraries, original photography (that you can purchase!) and more. You’ll hear about solo trips and vacations with my family and best friends.
