About

Welcome to Our Sweet Adventures!

My name is Christina and I am the owner and writer of Our Sweet Adventures – a travel couple blog where I talk about the all the delicious desserts we eat and all the beautiful places we go!

I am from Dallas, Texas and a graduate of Texas A&M University – WHOOP! I went to Texas A&M to play soccer, but along the way I found my passion of the culinary industry and started to pursue my career with a Tourism Management degree. After I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2013, I went to work in the fast paced hospitality world – Viva Las Vegas! I was eager to work every minute of every day to move up in my career, until I met Adam. Who would have thought I would meet my future husband in Sin City?

Both Adam and I always dreamed of traveling and seeing the world, but that’s all it ever was… a dream. When we started dating, we went on small adventures and quickly realized how much we really enjoyed traveling and discovering new places together. Our small adventures around Las Vegas turned into: weekend trips to California to play in the sand and watch sunsets over the endless ocean, hiking to the highest peaks in Zion National Park and even a 24 hour trip to Arizona to watch hockey. In addition to exploring new places, we started to explore new restaurants, bakeries and chocolate shops to eat some of the best food and desserts to help my pastry career and gain inspiration. Before we knew it, traveling and eating became a big part of our life so in 2016 I started Our Sweet Adventures.

On this website, you will find inspiration on traveling as a couple, to travel the world, take a local weekend getaway, enjoy luxury trips without breaking your wallet, city guides and more. Since 2013 we have been to 4 different continents and 15 countries eating our way through different cuisines and experiencing new adventures. It has been an incredible journey and I am very excited to have you follow along “Our Sweet Adventures”

Our Editor: Shelby, aka Christina’s little sister

Howdy! My name is Shelby and I am Christina’s amazing little sister. I graduated at an IB high school and majored in education at Texas A&M University in 2018. Like Christina and Adam, I love to travel, therefore my goal is to teach children around the world.

Growing up Christina and I were always close, but we became closer after she left for college. Now that I am helping Christina edit her blog, we are closer than ever and it has been a lot of fun! Furthermore, it has come with some additional sweet rewards. During Christmas in 2017, Adam and Christina surprised me with one of the greatest Christmas gifts of all time – a trip to hike Machu Picchu with them! We went the following June and had a trip of a lifetime. I cannot wait to see where they take me next!

Thanks and Gig’em!

Shelby
