Make Plans To Travel With Route Bliss

Even if you can’t travel on a regular basis, the internet is home to many wonderful travel bloggers who share their adventures. Today, I want to introduce you to Christina from Route Bliss. Christina focuses upon travel and photography tips along with sharing tips to making travel affordable , solo traveling as a female and how to begin learning photography. 

She shares wonderful tips microadventures throughout her home state of Texas but also highlights the trips of other bloggers throughout the world including Spain and Iceland. 

Today I’ve asked her to share a few of her favorite places she has traveled along with a fun Q and A.

4 favorite places I’ve traveled to so far

Vienna, Austria. This was my first destination outside the United States over a decade ago. There are so many reasons I love this city, but essentially the history, the architecture, and the culture are visible no matter where you are in the city. I just wish digital camera technology then was as good as it is now!


 Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It’s the gateway to Grand Teton National Park (and the south end of Yellowstone National Park) + the scenic views from this (expensive) Old West town make me want to go back permanently if I could ever afford to live there. I also loved the small town feel of someplace one would expect to be any but that.


Colorado Springs, Colorado. Of all the places I’ve traveled, this is on the very short list of places I’d up and move to if I ever leave Texas. With Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods in its back yard as well as an hour from Denver, its the perfect place for an outdoors/mountain lover. Plus, the Olympic Training Center and the Air Force Academy are located there as well.


Northern California. I’m not a beach person in the least, but the NorCal coastline is one I could visit over and over. There’s something about the rugged beauty that appeals to me far more than a warm sandy beach in a hot destination. Plus, the sky-reaching coastal redwoods that are just miles away are nothing short of amazing to my 5’4″ self.

Just for fun!

      I understand that feeling Katie … so many places, so little time and money!

    I underestimated Colorado Springs, but that place is absolutely gorgeous … and there is so much to do there. Haven’t been to the other locales, but Vienna is most definitely on my list of European cities to visit soon. Thanks for sharing.

      I hear ya Pete … as many beautiful places as there are in Colorado, COS has some unique gems unlike the rest of the state! Vienna has so much to see and do — I stayed almost a week with a friend that lives there and still didn’t see everything on my list. I need to go back sooner than later 🙂

    So many gorgeous places to travel to! I was just talking about California, Colorado, and Wyoming last night with my daughter! They’re on our list of must see places!

    • Christina McCall on June 1, 2016 at 5:28 pm

      Definitely plan a roadtrip with your daughter Anne 🙂 Colorado & Wyoming would make a great week or two adventure as would traversing California from south to north!

    I love vacationing in the USA–I definitely want to see more of the West someday! I think the National Parks and general outdoorsy awesomeness are prime vacation material!
