I'm Kelly! It’s always been my belief that everyone should experience travel. Whether it’s driving to a new town, visiting a new state, or flying across the globe. Seeing and immersing yourself in new places, food and cultures is what connects you to the rest of the world.

With experience in travel planning, I am excited to share my passion for the world with so many of you through travel, exploration and adventure!

Hi There!

Passports & Cappuccinos was created in 2016, to share the beauty of traveling and explore the things in life that accompany it. Here, you can find travel guides and tips, as well as my personal travels and musings.

Since my first international trip, at 16, I haven’t been able to keep my feet on the ground for more than a year. Traveling, and everything that goes along with it, is something I simply cannot live without! Researching new places, planning trips and falling in love with new cities is, and forever will be, my life’s passion.

For a glimpse into my home life… I currently live outside of Milwaukee with my husband, Brian, and our bunny, Minute. While cappuccinos are one of my favorite hot beverages, to me, they also symbolize the warm things in life; taking time to slow down and enjoy each moment and sip. So, on top of travel related post on the blog, you will also see a lot of posts inspired by my day-to-day life.

With this site, I hope to inspire people to seek out the new, and become nostalgic for the old and familiar. To take risks, and experience things our of the ordinary.
  
Travel well, and I hope you stop by again soon!

I worked in advertising for 6+ years, and have blogged on the side since 2016. Passports and Cappuccinos was a passion project until I launched my travel planning business in 2020!

Where are you located?

My husband, Brian, and I moved to Milwaukee a number of years ago and bought our first home in the suburbs in 2019. It's the perfect middle ground between my family in Chicago and his family in Green Bay. 

What type of travel planning services do you offer?

I have a variety of planning services ranging from free travel templates, pre-made travel guides and personalized itinerary building! Please fill out my contact form or email me directly at passportsandcappuccinos@gmail.com. I’d love to chat!

Who takes the pictures for your blog?

If I'm not in the photo, the person behind the lens is your's truly! The photos of me are usually taken by my husband, friends, or my trusty tripod (unless otherwise specified in my posts).

What kind of camera do you use?

Right now, I use a Nikon 3400, and really like it! I am by no means a professional, so I don't have too much fancy equipment on hand.

Have another question or want to get in touch? I'd love to hear from you! Head to my Contact Page to reach me directly.

Do you do sponsored content on your blog?

Yes! All sponsored posts are noted. I also work with a few affiliate companies, which means that if you purchase a product through a link, I may earn a commission. As always, all opinions on Passports & Cappuccinos are my own. If you'd like to work with me on sponsored content, please fill out my contact form.

Baby Packing List

After our first family vacation (and first time flying with a baby), I thought it was time I shared my ultimate packing list for babies & toddlers! Per usual, I’ve broken everything down into categories (which I personally find helpful, especially when making a baby packing list). When packing, I typically like to walk through […]

With our four year wedding anniversary this past month, we decided to go away for one night just the two of us. With travel basically being nonexistent these past (almost) two years (thanks Covid), a small getaway was very much needed. I found an off the grid tiny house on Airbnb, and thought that something […]

We recently booked a staycation for my birthday and it was the perfect little getaway! This was our first staycation, and I honestly don’t know why people don’t plan these more often! There’s basically no travel time, no major confusion with the area, and you get to see your own city in a totally new […]
