A Guide to Planning Your Own Epic Adventures!

The goal of Cats and Coddiwomple is to provide an entertaining and informative resource for planning epic adventures of your very own.

This website was born out of a love of swapping travel stories with friends and family, and getting many requests for travel tips and recommendations. People were always asking me where we found out about an amazing experience or how we got tickets for a certain restaurant or activity.

 In general, our friends wanted to know how they could take their upcoming trip to the next level, and thought we could help! 

Then I thought, if our friends and family are interested in our travel experiences and recommendations, others may find this information informative or inspirational as well! 

So, I hope you enjoy our travel stories and tips, and that they are useful when you’re planning your next epic adventure! Please feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, or requests for more information. 

So... what's with the cats?

I love to travel, but I also love cats! I live with several fabulous felines and I am always on the lookout for all things cats as I explore near and far. So, I decided to include my passion for cats into this site as well!

I can’t be the only traveler out there who loves cats, right?

About me

Hi! I'm Amber!

It seems like just yesterday that I packed up the cats and left the suburbs to embark on an exciting new life in the city of Atlanta. 

As an air traffic controller, I often work crazy hours and do not have as much time, flexibility, or funds to travel as much as we would like, but I definitely try! 

Aside from cats and traveling, I enjoy skydiving, scuba diving, photography, playing piano, scrapbooking, and lots of other outdoor adventures. 

I maintain the website and write the content for Cats & Coddiwomple. I also take most of the photos that are featured on this site. However, Chris Wood has also contributed many amazing photos as well.

July 2021

As many of you can relate, our travel plans for 2020 were cancelled due to the pandemic, and 2021 had a  similar start.

My latest & greatest adventure was an epic safari & beach trip in Tanzania to celebrate my 40th birthday!!

I have just recently sorted through the thousand of photos and will be starting on posts about the trip very soon. Expect an in depth look at the safaris/excursions, lodging, food, & traveling during COVID. And, of course, no post would be complete with a shout out to all the Cats of Tanzania – Big & Small!

For now, check on how I helped plan my birthday trip to Tanzania! 
And do something I don’t normally do – solicit the help of a travel agent as a special birthday treat for myself! 

Or check out lots of information about traveling to Tanzania & packing lists.

And stay tuned for all the dirty details about my epic adventure in my Travel Stories section & find inspiration for planning your own epic African adventure!
