Welcome to boots + black coffee, a lifestyle and travel blog for the off beat.

This isn't a story of how I quit my high powered job to start traveling full-time. I also don't do yoga on the edge of cliffs, I'm terrified of snakes and heights, and I can't swim that well. 

I am- a normal, fairly broke millennial balancing wanderlust with saving for my next adventure.

I work for a small start-up on a beer budget salary in Saint Louis, Missouri. I live and work remotely in a historic home (built in1896!) owned with my boyfriend. I'm not a travel or coffee expert but I love to share my adventures from local hiking spots and coffee shops to exploring new cities and countries with a little bit of the everyday in between.

Join me in chasing waterfalls, seeking out great coffee, and finding the unusual in new places; documenting through musings and images.
