About Travel Through Life

This is where you can learn more about the Travel Through Life team, who we are, what we do, and how you can keep traveling with us.

What does Travel Through Life mean?

Every time you step outside your door, you have a chance to travel through life. Travel doesn’t have to be a yearly family vacation or longterm trip. Instead, it can be every meal you enjoy at a new restaurant in town, a nearby indoor attraction, or a nature walk that’s within a short drive from your home.

About the Travel Through Life Team!

Carl Hedinger is the writer and Christina Riley is the photographer for Travel Through Life. After years of living abroad, we now call the good ole USA “home.” From our base here, we love sharing our travel stories, travel guides, and experiences with you.

Pretty much from day one in my life, I played with maps, globes, and anything else that showed me the world. I wanted to see it and it took some time before I took a chance on a Study Abroad opportunity in Japan, with very little knowledge of the language.

And that’s where my most wonderful memories as a traveler began. I never would’ve met Christina without first going away to Japan, but I never would’ve found myself, either.

Christina Riley | Photographer

The person in charge of 99% of the photos is my wonderful wife Christina Riley. She loves her Nikon d5100 and lens by Sigma. Christina also enjoys hunting for a rock to stand on or a mountaintop to do yoga poses on. She’s also an excellent designer and knows a thing or two about social media marketing and does consultations!

Prior to meeting “some dude in a bar”, she had traveled parts of Europe with her family. The topic of travel didn’t come up until we decided to go live in South Korea, and boy did that ever change our lives!


Our Work

We view this website as a constantly evolving canvas, filled with travel stories, guides, and experiences that we’ll continue sharing with you along the way. Our site and social media channels have been fortunate enough to cross paths with and create sponsored content for tourism bureaus, brands, and businesses throughout the world. If you’d like to work with us, we’d enjoy showing you what we’re capable of doing. Through the various travel destinations we cover and the commentary that we share, we want to have you

Our Message | Why We Have This Site

Hiking with a Baby

We view this world as an abundant one, full of places, people, and things worth seeing. That’s a message that we’re hoping to pass on to our daughter as she learns more about life. Our goal is to unlock you from the prison that is your own walls or fear of getting out there and to show you that there’s a very wide and wonderful world out there. If that’s a message you share and would like to touch upon, join the conversation and come on board as a guest author.
