About Theresa

Oh hai there. I’m Theresa—blogger, traveler, and cat lover.

I started Tremendous Times to show you how you can make travel a bigger part of your life. A few years ago, I had such a desire to travel but I just sort of assumed I couldn’t. At the time, I didn’t really have much extra money, I couldn’t exactly take time off of work, and I felt pretty scared to break out of my regular routine. Still, I desperately wanted to travel more, and so I started booking trips and forcing myself to do things out of the ordinary.

Along the way, I learned a lot about prioritizing trip taking—from budgeting to travel styles, transportation to destinations—and I love helping others make travel a bigger part of their lives. I’m here to not only inspire you to get out into that big, bad world but to also give you the tools and clear steps along the way to make. it. happen. Whether you’re planning a trip but have no idea where to start or want to book the flight but need to save up first, I hope that Tremendous Times motivates you to dream big and wander far.
