Wife with Baggage broke onto the travel blogging scene in May 2013 and has quickly become a travel resource for working professionals who make the choice to travel the United States and world-wide! Our readers come to us for destination inspiration, travel advice, money- and time-saving tips and ideas on how to incorporate travel into their everyday lives.
Who is Wife with Baggage? My name is Diane. I am the creator of Wife with Baggage but you’ll notice that I write “we” and “us” most of the time. That is because my husband, Michael, is the “behind the scenes” supporter of this website. He is, after all, my favorite travel partner. There is no Wife with Baggage without Michael. So, even though I do the writing, photo editing and posting, Michael is my ever-present other half. Since 2004 we have traveled to 6 continents, 13 countries, 11 U.S. states and countless cities, collecting photos, stories, memories and life lessons along the way.
While my full-time career as a pediatric speech therapist is fun and gratifying, the large part of my heart belongs to travel. Created with the goal of helping other working professionals, Wife with Baggage has quickly morphed from a hobby to a n income earning side gig.
