About this blog



Welcome to Chris and Allison’s travel blog!

We decided to start this blog when we moved to Europe so that we could share our whereabouts and travel tips with you. When we thought about what we should call it, we realized that our travel mainly consists of small trips packed with unique, high-quality, off-the-beaten-path destinations and adventures that leave our travel appetites satiated despite their brevity. We were probably drinking a Heady Topper or Pliny as we conjured up these ideas, and realized that this concept parallels the microbrew movement – hence, microtripping was born. We hope this blog can convey the incredible possibilities for travel that abound in Europe and around the world, even if you only have a day or a weekend to explore. And we hope that it will inspire you to come and join us! Our doors are always open!

    Nate told us about your sledding experience, so I had to check it out for myself – Wow! Yesterday the Bernina Express, just as I remember it. Enjoy, and keep blogging!
