We chose the name “TrippinTwins” because it popped in my head instantly and it fit our situation perfectly. After we moved back to our hometown, after living in Northern Virginia, we could afford to travel again. We took a few trips together and with others and found that we enjoyed our trips most when it was just the two of us. Some of our friends mentioned that we should start a blog. After some thought, we decided to give it a try.
The name is fairly self explanatory. Trippin in this case is a play on “Trip” and Twins because we are twins. We both have full time jobs and do not have endless amounts of time to travel, so we take shorter trips. We work together now, but in different areas, which makes it easy to coordinate our time off.
Finding the perfect travel partner can be difficult. We have learned that just because you love someone or just because you are great friends, does not automatically mean they will be the best travel partner. We still travel with other people and sometimes solo. We find that we are great travel partners because we have similar interests and travel styles, which makes trips generally fairly easy and a lot of fun. We are not completely settled and know that a lot could changed down the road. For now, we are choosing to live in the moment and enjoy our experiences as they come.
Do you have a fun story about your blog name to share?

I didn’t realize there were two people writing this blog. It looked like the same person! This is actually a helpful post.
I, Erica mostly participate in FB groups, but Tara and I both write posts on the blog. This challenge will focus primarily on me though.
That’s awesome! I’m trying to save up money now so I can take more trips. Especially since I live in Northern Nevada, which is such a beautiful area, and so close to so many great destinations! I’m hoping my boyfriend will be a good travel partner when he moves up here 🙂
It helps to live in a great area where you have a lot to explore. We believe if people really want to make it work, they can. Some people just aren’t good traveler’s even if they are good partners/friends.
I’m so jealous of travel blogs! With the health problems I can’t go anywhere physically, but I can read about it and dream. As an only child, I’m pretty jealous of having a sibling too, I always wanted one, and when I had kids of my own I was adamant there had to be more than one.
Yes, I understand. It’s a luxury and I’m we have the chance to indulge in. We know are lucky we have each other and the relationship we do.
