I’m so thrilled that you decided to stop by! I’m Katie, the face, founder, and editor of the Traveling Spud. I have lived in Boise, Idaho for 4 years and now live with my fiance.
I created the Traveling Spud blog in 2014 when I was living in San Francisco and working in the tech industry. After traveling quite a bit for my marketing job, I decided to start a solo travel blog to document my adventures. The name Traveling Spud came from the fact that I grew up in a small town in Idaho where we’re known for our famous potatoes (spuds)!
In 2016 and at 26 years old, I decided to embark on the best decision I’ve ever made—traveling solo around the world for a year! It was the best adventure I’ve ever taken. Because of this, I decided to create a course teaching others exactly how to make it happen for themselves. See more about my course below!
