About Me

Kristi West, Author Day Trip Tips
Kristi West, Owner

Hi, I am Kristi West, owner and content curator for Day Trip Tips.

My passion for travel has taken me on adventures around the globe and my background in education led me to develop a site that not only showcases amazing destinations but also gives tips on how to fully experience everything the place has to offer in a limited amount of time! 

The Most Beautiful Castle in Ireland: Cahir Castle

What sets Day Trip Tips apart from other travel sites is that we give a first-hand perspective of places we’ve actually been to and share our own curated itineraries.

While we do occasionally accept accommodations and press passes for our trips, the experiences we share are authentic and honest.
