Side Trip Travel
Hi I’m Andrew, with Side Trip Travel, I am a nomad, adventurer, and foodie. My goal with this site is to narrow down; events, restaurants, and outdoor activities in cities you are traveling to.
So you don’t have to!
Due to my occupation as a Traveling Nurse, I am able to scour a city over three months at a time, sifting through recommendations from friends, colleagues, and websites to give you three months of the nitty gritty and an ultimate list of top things to do.
It took me 16 months to realize that when I get to a new city, I have no idea what to do, where to go or even where to eat for the first few weeks. Yes, you look on the internet! Yes, you ask friends before you go! But do you really know the best restaurants, hikes, bikes, events, and activities… or even where to find them…. Exactly, tough work.
I will do my best and be honest about each of the things I do in order to provide a vivid real deal description of the places I go. In addition, at the end of my three months in a city I will make a list of the top 3-5 things to do.
A little history about my life…
I am a 31 year old Registered Nurse who had the opportunity to take life on the road. After 4 years sitting behind a desk as a business manager peeling through spreadsheets and wishing I was traveling, I decided to leave the 9a-5p and choose the 7a -7pm – 3 day a week, #nurselife. After gaining experience as a nurse I started travel nursing with my girlfriend, Sarah (who also happens to be a Travel Nurse). We have been on the road for 16 months eating, drinking, and playing through 5 different cities.
