This is where you can find more information about the team behind NC Tripping. A version of this originally appeared on our main travel site Travel Through Life. For questions about working with us or sponsored collaborations, please reach out there. Now, let’s share a little bit more about ourselves with you.


The NC Tripping Team

Carl Hedinger is the writer and Christina Riley is the photographer for NC Tripping & Travel Through LifeAfter years of living abroad, we now call North Carolina “home.” From our base in Durham, we love sharing North Carolina Travel Guides, stories about the People of NC, and everything else about the Tar Heel State. We really love it here!

“I played with maps, globes, and anything else that showed me the world. And I view North Carolina as a huge map, filled with awesome places to explore and people to meet. I hope you share my excitement for this wonderful state!”

“North Carolina is unlike any other “home” I’ve ever lived in. There are the mountains, the ocean, and even a lot of beautiful places in between. I’ve yet to find a piece of North Carolina that I don’t love!”

We’ve created this site to help people who are traveling to North Carolina and need some tips and advice on where to go and what to do. Our NC Tripping Facebook Group is another fun avenue for us to stay connected, so feel free to join us there. 

If there’s something you’d like to chat with us about, whether it’s adding something to this site or anything else, please contact us and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.
