Welcome to Love Winns Travels! I'm glad you're here.  My name is Julie Winn and I live in South Burlington, Vermont with my family. I launched this blog in the beginning of February of 2022 with the idea of sharing our travel photos, videos, itineraries and share some travel inspiration. 

We're a two-mom household and involved with our local LGBTQ community. My wife and I have been together for nineteen years, and married for twelve years. My wife is transgender and over the years I've become a fierce advocate to raise awareness about transgender issues and help to protect trans rights, not only for my wife, but other close family members and friends who are transgender. I wanted to share some of the struggles and experiences we've had while traveling during different stages of transition. The LGBTQ community faces increased risks and challenges while traveling, and that is something I hope to bring light to in this blog.

This blog will also be a space to share tips on budget travel. Our family lives a modest lifestyle in Vermont. Our living situation is comfortable, but we don’t have a ton of money, in comparison to a lot of other travelers, so all of our traveling is done on a very tight budget. I’ll be sharing tips and tricks on how to make your dollar go further while being able to adventure and see as much as you can.

And lastly, this blog will include information on traveling as a vegetarian, as well as traveling with food allergies. I’ve been a vegetarian for over a decade now and will use this space to share some of the challenges, and some of the wins, that vegetarians face while traveling on the road.

I’ll also share some of the challenges we face traveling with life-threatening food allergies. Our child is allergic to Sesame and Peanuts, and one wrong bite could lead to the emergency room. Food allergies are a very serious epidemic and often misunderstood by society. I have been involved recently in some advocacy on both the State and Federal levels to try and make life safer for people with food allergies. Traveling is one of those areas where I strive to make things safer, not only for my child but for everyone out there who is dealing with the everyday challenges of living with a food allergy.

My family loves road trips and we consider ourselves National Park geeks. Our goal is to visit all of the National Parks in the United States. Currently most of our traveling has been throughout the United States and Canada, but we're hoping to experience more international travel in the coming years. 

I'm excited to have the opportunity to share our love for adventure with new readers. Follow us on social media! We're on Youtube, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Read on, and enjoy.
