Mother Daughter of All Trips

“We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us” -Anonymous

A Mother and Two Daughters

Hi, we are the Arends. Jennifer (Mom), Avery (16) and Addi (15). Covid-19, the ability to do school virtually, the loss of a Mother/Grandmother, 5 teenage friends unexpectedly and a dream sparked us to embark on the Mother Daughter of all trips across the United States. The loss of these people made us realize the fragility of life and the need to live it to the fullest while you can. We have always been a family that loves travel. However most of our travel has been outside the United States. We thought it was time for us to see our own country. So sit back, let us do the driving and lets see where we end up.
