Welcome to Flying Off the Bookshelf, a blog about travel and books. I’m Erin, the creator of Flying Off the Bookshelf. Along with my husband, Gerrit, and our daughter, we love to travel and read; so this blog brings the two together!
When it comes to travelling, I’m obsessed with researching as much as possible and getting every detail right. In our marriage, we joke that we travel well together because I make the perfect travel plans and Gerrit’s penchant for spontaneity saves the day when something inevitably goes wrong.
Why start a travel blog during a pandemic, you might ask? Well, the basic answer is because we miss travel. We miss having the world opened up to us, and we have to have faith that it will eventually come back. In the meantime, writing about travel helps us feel like the possibilities are a bit closer.
Here, we want to give you our best travel tips: our favorite sights to see, the best itineraries, restaurants you can’t miss—from Europe to Disney World to local travel from our base in North Alabama (and hopefully more adventures to come).
Thanks for joining us!
