I'm a Wisconsin cheesehead enjoying a nomadic lifestyle with my partner-in-crime, aka husband, Brad. In January 2022, we left the United States to embark on a multi-year backpacking adventure through Mexico, Central America, and other bucket list countries!

Looking for trip inspiration or just have a case of wanderlust? Welcome to The Spunky Curl! My goal is to share first-hand experiences to help individuals and couples jumpstart their upcoming travels.

Thank you for visiting!
