Well I do have a lot of them, but my “Two Tents Down” goal is to share advice and stories about camping and traveling that will educate, inspire, and enable people to spend their precious time exploring!
Here is one of my inspirational adventure moments, and the story that goes with it:
Who the heck am I, and why should you trust me?
Well, let me introduce myself. I’m Lauren. I am a Wisconsinite, and I LOVE cheese! Wait, that’s to be expected. Okay, I really do love cheese! Actually, I love food in general, as well as the outdoors. I hike, bike, camp, and travel as much as I can.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a journalism degree in 2012, I chased love to England. There, I resided for seven months, hiking and camping, and visiting several cities including Manchester, Liverpool, and Edinburgh, Scotland.
On a whim, my wife and I moved to Taiyuan, China to teach English. We lived there for a year, getting to know the culture, learning Mandarin, eating authentic Chinese food, and exploring places like Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing.
In 2014, we returned to America to reunite with my family and plan the next trip. We currently reside in Milwaukee, hiking and camping as much as possible on the budget of an assistant teacher and a food service worker! Read about what I’ve been up to since I’ve been home in my article called “Traveling on my Mind”.
During the time in between adventures, I dream through reading and writing. I am proud to say, I created and run the Two Tents Down blog. It is a constantly evolving project — open to ideas, and subject to change. Each entry is based on my adventure successes… and of course my failures! What’s more: all articles include the perspectives of fellow adventurers.
I like to interact with readers and other explorers on social media. Through these platforms, I share my latest blog posts, photos, stories, and my favorite articles written by fellow adventurers.
