About Me

Hi, I am Cristie, also known as The Traveling Red!

Born and raised in the beautiful city of Miami, I developed a love and appreciation of cities around the world at an early age. By my 30th birthday, I had already visited 43 countries and that number has continued to increase since.

I have a passion for experiencing different cultures, meeting new people, and tasting all types of cuisines. I travel as much as I possibly can, and always try to pick somewhere new to explore. My husband and I are both business owners and lucky enough to have very flexible schedules that allow us to travel as much as we do. I run my company from my home, so my work just comes with me. I don’t go anywhere without my laptop.

Last year we grew our family and welcomed a baby girl, so we now travel as a family of 3. Taking a toddler around the world isn’t easy, but it’s so worth it! She might not remember, but she will always have the pictures to treasure.

Although we always travel just for fun, I was encouraged by friends to start a blog so I could share my adventures, pictures, videos, and travel tips with them (and with you)! Keep an eye out and check back often, because I’ll be providing tons of travel tips to ensure that you have the best vacation possible. I’ll help you figure out what to pack, how to keep your luggage light, how to save money, where to go, how many days to stay, and so much more. Planning a trip is a lot of work, but I can help you by sharing tips that I learned along the way.

One of my favorite quotes says, “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer,” and I couldn’t agree more. I’m so excited to share my stories with you, and I hope that you enjoy experiencing my crazy adventures around the world (and really, I hope that you’re inspired to create some crazy adventures for yourself)!

Happy Travels!
