Hi! I’m Heather and I like to say I’m a hybrid as I’m a born and bred Southern girl who lived in California for a few years and left part of her heart there! ! I hope you take a look around and love what you see! I have a passion for travel, food and photography and I am so excited to share my experiences with all of you! I hope to discover as much of God’s creation as possible before I leave it and I would love to have you follow along on my journey!
So like I said, I was born and raised in the South! I am an RN and practiced for seven years which included working as a traveling RN (I highly recommend this to RNs if you are considering this route!). After getting married, we spent the first four years of our marriage in Los Angeles. I loved it!
After moving back to the South and learning that a lot of filming had moved from LA to Atlanta, I decided to take a break from nursing and dab in the entertainment business in the form of background acting. I had a lot of great experiences on well-known film and TV sets as a background actor and was seriously considering going all out to try and move up in the acting world when … I started getting random travel opportunities!
I come from a travel enthusiastic family so traveling wasn’t new to me. My parents traveled with us a good bit growing up and they still travel a good bit today! There were really no goals or intentions in regards to my new travels. I just took opportunities as they came up and not too long after, I found myself turning down calls from casting companies to work on the set of some of my favorite films and TV shows because I was traveling so much!
Over the past seven years, I have had opportunities to see gorgeous places all over the world and I have loved every minute of it! With all this newfound travel came questions and comments such as “How do you get to travel so much?”, “I love to see your photos!”, “I live vicariously through you!” and “What do you recommend for going to this place, using this product or doing this activity?” fairly regularly.
After thinking about it for quite some time, in the fall of 2015, I decided it was time to share my travel journeys and experiences with others! The name of my blog came to me pretty fast. How and when to dive into it required a little more thought. I’m definitely a do-your-homework kind of girl! With the support of my husband, family and friends and the help of a blogger friend and mentor, I established Trimm Travels in the spring of 2016, went from RN – to background actress – to travel/food/photography blogger and I haven’t looked back! Thank you so much for being a part of it!

Do you take your dogs with you on your trips. Just wondering because we have one kind of like yours who we take. So lodging and dining must be pet friendly. Thank you Vicki
Hi Vicki-I don’t take them now. They are older (one has actually passed already) and wouldn’t do well. The younger one like to be the others. I traveled with my first Maltese a long time ago and she loved it. Thanks for reading! 🙂

Thanks for all of the great info on Zurich – especially Lichtenstein. I’m heaving over there at the end of June.
Looking forward to more interesting info and tips.
Best of luck to you.
Hi Eileen! Thank you so much! I’m glad you found the Zurich and Liechtenstein posts useful and I hope you have a great time. I would love to hear about your experiences! Thanks for reading! 🙂
Hi, I’m Kenyan based tour operator and I’m really inspired by your travels around the world. Job well done. In your profile I didn’t see you visit Kenya, this country is the original safari destination and I would look forward to your visit.Just to mention the Masai Mara, already documented as the 7th wonder of the world among many other world heritage sites.
Get in touch for a life time experience.

Love your photos! What camera do you use?
Hi Amy! Thank you so much! I use a few different cameras, but primarily my travel camera which is a Canon SX730 HS and my GoPro Hero 4 Silver and then some (especially the panoramas) are shot with my iPhone 7! I’m currently getting acquainted with my new Canon 80D! Thanks for reading!
I am so inspired with your post and plan to travel to switzerland and do a day trip to Liechtenstein around May next year. Can you share your itinerary with me? It would really help me a lot with planning.
Hi Liza, thank you I appreciate that and glad you liked the post and found it helpful. Of course, I would be happy to share my Switzerland itinerary! Thanks for reading! 🙂

86 This in Ellsworth. So good I went two days in a row and no regrets. Even got the same thing : Yam I am burrito. On a long trip it’s a good break from seafood. Definitely needs to be on this list, and I don’t comment on anything and am missing it this year. Thank you for the info.
Hi Michael-I’m assuming this is in response to my Guide to MAINE-ly Eating post? I will have to try 86 This next time I’m in Ellsworth. Thanks for the suggestion and for reading! 🙂

Hi! Just found your blog while researching watching the ball drop in Time Square. I’m a native New Yorker so of course I’ve never done it!
Hi Diana-I totally get it, you aren’t alone! I’m guilty of not doing things in my own city or in Los Angeles during the years I resided there! However, I TOTALLY recommend watching the ball drop in NYC if you haven’t done it. Did you see my article on watching the ball drop without the crowd? If not, check it out. I actually just did it again this year (just got home a couple of days ago) and will be updating the article soon. It is THE WAY to go for both freedom and comfort! Happy New Year and thanks for reading! 🙂
Started traveling 6 yrs ago
We love it. Have done quite a bit until lately
This years trips cancelled
Going to book after I finish my research
Yellowstone Grand Tetons
Badlands for April 28-May 12
Is that too early. ?????
We love snow covered anytime in our Photos (really why I travel)
We prefer no crowds. Don’t mind cold/cool weather
Better for hiking
What is your opinion weather wise
Hi Donna-It would probably be too early for most people because some things might not be open yet for the season. However, if you like winter, snow-covered photos, and no crowds then it might be the perfect time for you. The ski resorts will be more populated and you might not see much wildlife. But I love winter weather and snow-covered everything too and agree it’s better for hiking (I hate the heat!). So if you understand those things and are willing to trade them out, I don’t see why you wouldn’t have a good time. Since I personally haven’t been during the time, I would look on the park pages and contact where you are wanting to stay to be sure of what is and isn’t open. Hope you get to go and have fun and thank you for reading! 🙂
