A Girl and 21 States

Over two years ago I wrote a story about a Nebraska native turned Peace Corps volunteer who had been to over 21 countries. Today I want to bring you a continuation of that story by talking to another Nebraska girl who has been to over 21 STATES! (37 to be exact)

Logan Koepke is the writer/photographer/blogger behind Bliss Junkie – a travel blog dedicated to bringing you budget tips, hotel or Airbnb reviews, recommendations for good places to eat and stunning pictures.

You can keep up with her journey through Facebook or Instagram.

In no particular order, and all for different reasons, her favorite states are Alaska, North Carolina and Hawaii. She could most likely see herself living in North Carolina if she ever moved away from Nebraska – and for a pretty legit reason

“You don’t have to wear shoes to the grocery store and the people are a special kind of warm.”

Some of us might have fond (or maybe not so-fond) memories of our first family vacation. For me, I distinctly remember jumping on the beds of this small rented-out house in the Ozarks. For Logan, her first memory is of a small seaside town in Oregon.

“We saw sea lions in a stinky cave and watched fishermen sort crab on a dock.”

And while she hasn’t made it back to that exact location, she has been to Oregon since then. Like I said, she’s been busy traveling to more than half of the states. But beyond the U.S., Logan has also traveled outside the U.S. to a few countries: Greece and Mexico to name a few.

“I’d love to visit Greece again and spend an entire month there. The food is so fresh and healthy, it’s hard not to love”

I personally really enjoy reading Logan’s Bliss Junkie blog because, I find it so thrilling that others get as excited about travel as I do. And to be from the same state makes it even more fascinating to me! But I’m not the only one, Bliss Junkie gets thousands of views every week and I hope you’ll consider checking her out too.

And if that alone doesn’t get you interested, maybe the thought of U.S. travel will. While 23 now, Logan hopes to reach all 50 states by the time she’s 25 – that’s a lot of blogs and tips you could be reading! 

But as always, thanks for checking out my corner of the web and stayed tuned for my 2020 travel plans!

  1. The US has so many amazing States, many of which are on my bucketlist. I’ve been to quite a few already, but many more to go! I haven’t been to North Carolina yet, which is odd given that all Canadians go there lol.

    I am dying to go to Alaska or Hawaii. I’ve done a fair share of travel within the US so I feel like they’d be the states most different.

      Yeah especially since they are the only ones not contiguous! I’m hoping to go to Hawaii in 2021 🙂

  4. That’s so amazing to be able to visit all those states! I need to explore more states especially since I never been to the west coast. I’ve only been around the east coast. Thanks for inspiring me to see more!

    All the Hawaiian Islands are pretty fabulous. I haven’t been to Alaska yet but suspect it will be a favorite of mine too

    What a great goal to shoot for by age 25! I bet she can do it, with just 13 left to go. I’m still four states shy of making all 50 myself. Must take a road trip! 😀

    I can definitely understand, I would love to do something like that. Europe has 40 states and by the age of 40, I want to see all of them. I hope you will reach your goal

    It’s nice that she has explored more than half the states in the US and also travelled outside to Greece and Mexico. I’d love to explore more of the US at some stage, I’ve hardly been to a few (I do live really far away, to be fair) and I can see why she loves Hawaii, I have been there and would love to go back someday!
