About the Urbanistas
Adrienne and Kristen are two fun-loving, travel obsessed women hailing from PG County, Maryland -- suburban girls turned city-savvy urbanistas.
We've spent our twenty-something years living, studying, and playing in (and just outside of) Washington, DC, but after graduating college, we both decided to adopt new cities on opposite ends of the country.
We're now on a mission to take full advantage of our cities and the world at large while pursuing our dream professions and lifestyles.
We created Peaches, Beaches, and Urbanistas as an outlet to share our travel tales and our journeys transitioning from one city to another, far away from home.
With Kristen’s move to Los Angeles, California (land of the beaches), then to Chiang, Mai Thailand; and Adrienne’s move to Atlanta, Georgia (land of the peaches), we hope this blog helps other young women conquer the challenges that come with uprooting their lives to seek new beginnings and to become smart world travelers. We share our trips, vacation escapades, and advice on planning fulfilling domestic jaunts and international voyages.
A Collaborative Platform
PBU also serves as a platform for other women to share their stories as cosmopolitan individuals who set out to break down barriers. Here on Urbanistas, the motto is to "live a vibrant life - fearlessly." We encourage women to experience the world, create and take advantage of opportunities to flourish, and most importantly, to have fun while unapologetically pursuing a passion-filled life!
