Angela thoroughly loves to travel and particularly enjoys blogging about her family's current adventures in standby travel. Her reasons for travel vary widely, ranging from wildlife work to casual family vacations to spur of the moment trips across the country to watch bats emerge from caves. Her firefighter/paramedic husband works for an airline during summers, affording them the opportunity to fly standby for free to virtually anywhere.
Angela and her family have taken creative advantage of this with their travels and have become extremely experienced at packing light (including many carry-on only family trips) and at assessing luggage and travel gear.
Through her recent years with chronic illness, Angela has learned to adapt travel according to health limitations, the ages and related limitations of traveling with children, and limitations to time and money.
Angela also enjoys car trips and car camping with her family and has recently bought an old camper to renovate.
