ABOUT

Hello and welcome to Currently Colorado. I started this blog to be a guide for all those lost when planning their trips. While I may currently be in Colorado, I've traveled quite a few places to learn a few tricks.

I was born in Dallas, TX in 1992 to two badass parents that would continue to support me throughout my life. Raised mostly in the small town Cleburne, the world was calling my name and by age 13 I couldn't wait any longer. I took my first solo-trip to Japan that summer and moved to Fort Worth that fall. Lucky enough to go to an arts academy, I would join a touring choir that would allow me travel even more.

As you can see, I've been doing this for a while. While most of my travels have been domestic (thanks American Airlines!) I've added a few more countries to my list including Mexico, Iceland, Spain and soon Canada. With over 30 states and 5 countries, you could say I get around.

Help Me Help You

It wasn't long that I had been traveling before my friends and family wanted to get in on the secret. To be honest, there really isn't one. Smart traveling requires just a bit of patience, some dedication and lot of good luck. Many people think I have exclusive hookups with airlines and hotels - I DON'T. I am simple the airline version of an extreme couponer. This skill took time to learn and hone in on - but anyone can do it. 

Feel free to use my HACKS and DEALS pages to your delight - my Instagram page has better live updates, but long-lasting deals and tips will be stored on these pages. If you're looking for more tailored or hands-on help, feel free to inbox me. 

Travel & Adventure Consulting

As mentioned above, if you came here looking for some magic button to organize your trip for the best deal - you're not going to find it. As much as I wish I was a tech genius, I'm simply not. In fact, it took me nearly three years to get this blog officially running. What I AM a genius at is planning trips. Whether your looking for a guided agency type experience or a freestyled backpacking trip, I offer a free initial consultation to discuss trip details. From there, if I believe I can help you save $100+ on your trip, I will take you on as a client and help you get it booked. No savings = no sale. Visit the Consultation Services page for more details.


Social Media/Biz Consulting
In addition to travel consultations, I also offer multi-platform social media and business development consulting. Between my partner and I, we guarantee we can increase engagement and drive sales to your business. If you feel like you haven't quite gotten the hang of social or simply need to generate leads, we can help you out. Visit the Consultation Services page for more details.

How to Find the Cheapest Flights This Fall

If you haven't already begun setting aside some cash for your next adventure, you have just under three weeks to get it together! It's August, the best month of the year to buy international flights. Dreaming of Dubai? Fawning of France? These elusive deals are going to be coming in hot, here's how to find them.

Mark your calendars, August is here.Historically speaking, August 21-22 is the average timeframe for when international flights will drop in prices. While these deals definitely pop-up year round, August seems to be a magnet for price mistakes and traditional sales. It's like the perfect storm of market activity to help you save. I set a reminder for that mid-month week, but the opportunities for sales will occur throughout the month. If you don't have any money saved already, now is the time to gather a few hunnies up.  NEVER pay more than $500 for an international flight again! Unless you're flying somewhere particularly far out like Tokyo, New Zeala…

O', OREGON

Oregon was the first state I visited when I began this lifestyle of adventure travel a few years ago. I was there for only 18 hours and saw very little, but the hike we did was my first hike since childhood and ignited a passion in me that would shape the rest of my life. Hiking to Pittock Mansion in the early morning glow while snacking on Voodoo Donuts was a highlight of my early 20s and a feeling I still chase today.


Knowing we were headed for Oregon on this trip, it was hard not to be excited. It's host to some of our nation's most incredible features from waterfalls and hot springs to forests lush with life. If you haven't figured it out yet, I really love Oregon. Our destination on this 2nd/3rd day would be Toketee Campground and all the magic that it contains. I was stoked to finally break out the tent and even more excited to break into our stash of Mountain House meals. Drew and I knew, even back when we were still headed to Canada, that the easiest way to cut do…

Meet Hill Country's Firefly: the Wahwahtaysee Resort

I decided the best way to spend part of January was to take my furbaby Courage on a Tour de Tejas ending in Hill Country -- namely, Kingsbury, TX at the Wahwahtaysee Resort. For the sake of transparency I must disclose that the Wahwahtaysee Resort did host me and Courage for our two-night stay in Kingsbury in exchange for my honest review of their new resort. Which we absolutely loved! Take 10% off when you book using code "CurrentlyColorado10."

Our arrival to the Wahwahtaysee Resort was in the dark, making it a little difficult to find but if you know me - you know I love a challenge. I drove up and down the same road probably four times before finally calling for directions. I have the worst night vision, so I don't blame them. It was super dark driving in, but I could still see the outline of pecan trees reaching over our heads. I couldn't wait to see that in the morning. But first, the clouds were parting and I could see some stars peeking through. My goal was to …
