Welcome to Team Off Duty

Rachel Off Duty: Start Here

Hi, I’m Rachel!

I created Rachel Off Duty to empower other adventurous women like myself to lead more adventurous lives. On this site, you will find the travel tips, detailed itineraries, trip planning guides, and hotel reviews to make quick travel decisions that’ll help you maximize your adventures. You’ll also find career, motivation, and lifestyle articles, covering everything from optimizing your home office to navigating how to ask for more time off.

At the end of the day, I truly believe being adventurous and having a career are not two completely isolated paths. I also believe the world can be explored, and experienced, and seen, even if you don’t have a lot of time or money. If you believe these things too, then you’ve come to the right place.

Happy Adventuring!
