Welcome! I’m Ellie!

Founder & Editor of Ellie’s Travel Tips

Hi there! As a 25-year-old travel enthusiast from Madison, Wisconsin, I have been exploring the world since I could barely walk.

My journey with cruising, in particular, began on a magical note, aboard the Disney Magic when I was just eight years old.

That experience ignited a passion within me that has only grown stronger with time. In 2020, when a planned study abroad program in London was unexpectedly canceled due to COVID, I turned my longstanding dream into reality by starting Ellie’s Travel Tips.

My Travel Philosophy

Traveling, to me, is more than just visiting new places; it’s about discovering new ways of seeing the world and ourselves.

Having ventured to nearly every country in the Western Hemisphere, I’m on a mission to tackle the rest of the globe.

My most memorable adventure to date was a 30-day cruise from Miami, through the majestic Panama Canal, and around the breathtaking tip of South America.

It’s experiences like these that I aim to share with you—curated, no-nonsense travel tips to guide your next adventure.

Why I Do What I Do

Ellie’s Travel Tips was born out of a desire to fill the gap I saw in travel content: the need for personalized, practical advice that caters to the diverse needs of travelers.

Whether you’re a seasoned explorer or just starting out, my goal is to help you find your passion for travel. I specialize in cruise travel tips, but my curiosity doesn’t stop there.

From general travel advice to curated lists of recommendations, I explore all facets of traveling to ensure there are options for everyone, at every destination, and every mode of travel.

My Mission

I believe that no two travelers are alike, and finding the right travel options for everyone is essential. My mission is to empower both young and old travelers to embark on their own journeys with confidence and excitement.

Traveling has the power to transform us, to challenge our perceptions, and to connect us more deeply with the world around us.

Through Ellie’s Travel Tips, I’m here to share my experiences, insights, and passion for travel with you, helping you navigate the vast and vibrant world of travel.

I’m always eager to hear from fellow travel enthusiasts, whether it’s to share stories, seek advice, or collaborate.
