Francesca Amott

I run a business full-time, but travel is my passion and travel blogging keeps me connected to this passion. My love of travel came from my father, a road trip wanderer who was an expert on finding every historical marker on highways and side roads.My sister and I are polar opposites, but took a trip to Ireland together when we were 20 and 23, and had so much fun that The Travel Adventures of the Amott Sisters was born.With the ups and downs of life, I strive to find as much joy in the local as in the exotic. Our latest adventure is the addition of my baby nephew to our travel team. But add on a car seat, and the journey continues.

Finding the Charm in Charm City

How Do You Follow Up a Perfect Trip?

I took the perfect trip a few months ago. It was a milestone birthday, and I had been planning this perfect trip for a year, six months of those without a destination,...

I Was a UNESCO Snob

I fly from the East Coast to visit my sister in San Diego pretty frequently. In our younger days, my visits were spent bar and beach hopping. But as we got older, and...
