Have you ever had an experience that truly changed you for the better? Altered the way you saw the world? Made you think twice about how you live your life? I did, and this blog is my way of telling you about it and committing to pursuing similar experiences.
Hello! My name is Leah Deppert and welcome to my blog. Founded in the summer of 2016, By Travel & Error is a travel and lifestyle blog that shares lessons learned, experiences shared and stories created while wandering around our messy, yet beautiful world. My goal is ultimately to help you enjoy your life more by leaping outside of your comfort zone…be it through traveling, developing an authentic community or growing in your faith.
Who? Well…you 🙂 and most likely gals in their 20’s-30’s who long for adventures, greater balance, and ultimately more joy in their everyday lives.
What? You can expect travel tips & itineraries, packing lists, life hacks, recommended books, stories about faith, family & friends…and more!
Where? Mainly travels across the United States…for now. I also tend to write a lot about my beloved hometown… Cleveland, OH!
When? The inspiration for this blog started in the spring of 2009, but I started writing in June 2016.
Why? It’s so easy to become complacent, isn’t it? Let’s learn together how to jump outside of our comfort zones by experiencing, learning and growing by travel and error!
More About Me…
Likes: Watching The Bachelor/The Bachelorette (with my roommate & our mommas), airplane food (don’t judge–it usually means you’re going somewhere far away and fun), staying up late to finish a book you just couldn’t put down, wineries + bikes rides + lazy Sundays, exploring new cities but also my hometown, Cleveland, OH, being an auntie to Simon, Gus & Aurellia, potluck dinners with family/friends, Ben Rector concerts aka reunions with my college roommates, and finally…people watching in airports (ahem, lookin’ at you, Mr. Skinny Tie and Brown Leather Shoes) because if you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around…
Dislikes: That sinking feeling when your carry-on is not fitting into the overhead compartment, the words “wifey” and “hubby”, waking up thinking it’s Friday when it’s really Tuesday, humble braggers, meetings that last forever, when your airplane seatmate doesn’t acknowledge your presence, Monday mornings and delayed flights.
