A Wisconsin Travel Ambassador

My name is Chelsey Knuth, also known as The Wisconsinista. I am a Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based travel and lifestyle blogger, social media influencer, and digital content creator. I have a passion for exploring my home state and promoting tourism across the Midwest. You can consider me your personal Wisconsin travel resource!

I feel strongly that the tourism industry deems certain destinations more worthy of a visit than others and strive to change that dialogue with my work. Every landscape, be it forest, prairie, beach, mountains, or desert, has something to offer. That’s why you will often find me putting new places on the map in today’s digital wanderlust culture.

When I’m not writing about Wisconsin, I’m usually exploring it. I especially enjoy water skiing, hiking, and snowmobiling. You can follow my adventures by reading my blog!

Cozy Cabin Exterior in Northfield Wisconsin

I love being cozy.

Actually, I’m kind of obsessed with it. Having a warm place to come home to or a rustic cabin getaway to visit makes life a little less stressful. Personally, embracing rural escapes instead of big city vacations has helped me overcome a lot of the anxiety and homesickness I used to experience while traveling.

Because we can’t always be snuggled up at home or in a cabin, though, it is critical to find ways to manage our worries wherever we are. The #PursuitOfCoziness initiative promotes anxiety-free travel and living by sharing cozy destinations on social media, because getting into a cozy headspace can be all you need to make it through the day. Consider it your daily to-go order of cabin vibes!

To join the movement, follow @pursuit_of_coziness on Instagram and use #PursuitOfCoziness to share the cozy spaces you love with others who need a quick dose of calm. After all, a warm and welcoming space is what being cozy is all about! Let’s help each other make social media (and wherever you may be checking it from) an anxiety-free place to be.
