30 Fun Things to do in NYC
Who are we?
We're Georgina and Nathan! A couple of adventurous souls who love exploring this planet and all it has to offer. We love all things travel, hiking, and rooftop tent camping.
What do we do?
We want to help you plan your vacations and become the avid traveler you dream of being. Our goal is to share our experiences with you and help you plan your vacations. Traveling IS obtainable, and we're here to show you how!
Travel teaches you to learn about and respect different cultures, foods, ways of life, and more. Let's all travel the world and learn to treat others with kindness and respect our differences.
Nice to meet you!
We're Georgina and Nathan, California and Illinois natives. We met in Chicago where we both attended DePaul University (go Blue Demons!) at a board game night and... the rest is history!
Well actually, we started as good friends, lost touch, reconnected, and now we've been exploring this insane planet that we call home together ever since. After college, we knew the "traditional career path" was not for us, and honestly the *traditional life path*, in general, just wasn't for us.
We needed to travel and explore what this world has to offer, it sounds cliché but you do only live once. So we started to find new adventures and realized that we wanted to share them with others so they can enjoy them just as much as we do. That truly is our passion! Thankfully we both scored great remote jobs that allow us to follow our dreams and help others follow theirs!
Join us, and our dog, JoJo, as we find exciting adventures and travel recommendations for you! If you've been bit by the travel bug just as we have, we hope you find our travel and camping tips useful for any and all of your future travels.
Let's get to know each other!
I'm Georgina, half of Alpacka My Bags. I run our social media pages (follow us on Facebook and Instagram!) and write most of the blogs that you'll be reading here! Organizing is definitely my forte so most of the logistics, plans, and details are tackled by me. I find the flights, the Airbnbs, the destinations, the trails, and anything else to satisfy our itch for adventure. You should see how many tabs are open on my laptop at all times.
Some things about me: I graduated from DePaul University with a degree in business administration. Outside of traveling, I love painting, reading, and all kinds of crafting. You name it, I've made it. I love being active, especially when it's outside. Fun fact, I danced for 11 years, from elementary until I graduated from college.
I'm Nathan, the other half of Alpacka My Bags. I do a lot (but not all) of the technical stuff for the blog. Taking pictures and videos, changing out the lenses, and charging the batteries, to make sure that we have every and any kind of equipment ready for our adventures.
Some things about me: I graduated with a degree in business administration (though I did take two years of film school), I pretty much love everything movie, music, book, and game-related (video or board), and I absolutely love being active and going outside. Other random facts about me are that I used to act and do show choir in high school, I dabbled in the youtube realm for a second, and I had a pet hedgehog.
