My name is Kendra Seignoret and I am a cubicle escape artist. I try to find ways to keep my job which is in a cubicle (for now) while also trying to escape it as often as possible. Unfortunately, I do not live in Europe where people get five weeks a year off. However, with a little creativity and some determination, I’ve discovered ways to parlay 15 days off into trips that can last up to 3 months long. And until I somehow find the end of the rainbow and chase off the little green guard, I will have to accept the golden handcuffs of my current employment.

As a traveller, I aim for both the unique and the cliché. I’ve done the day tours and the backpacking, the 5-star B&B and the hostel, street food and the fancy high tea, the beach resort and the mountain top cabin, the road trip and the long walks… If it is a fun, breathtaking, and/or beautiful experience, I don’t care if one million people before me have done it or just one person – I want to experience it for myself.

Rusty Travel Trunk is my way of sharing my experiences, both through the written word and in photographs. My trips are generally solo and are always awesome (or so I like to think). I hope they encourage people to go further than just sitting on a cruise ship or behind the gates of a resort – there is SO much to see and do! Just go!

Feel free to contact me about anything on this site. Or if you have a suggestion on where I should go next, I’d love to hear! If you would like me to write for your publication or present/speak at a function, also feel free to contact me.

You can also find me on Instagram!

  1. Hi there Kendra,
    Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere and for following. Your support is greatly appreciated, Looking forward to seeing more from you 🙂


  2. Hello newest Spikey! I know, a bit corny, eh, but that’s the term that has come to stick for those folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it, thrown in for good measure.

    My promise to you is not to be overbearing, just a couple of posts a day, maybe 3 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…


  3. Hi Kendra!

    I’ve only just started to have a good look at your website and I love already. I am enjoying your blogs and your ongoing library of excellent photographs, simply bring the blogs alive.

    … And I am not being biased :-).

    Best wishes always, in everything you do.


      • I know exactly what you mean! I’d been thinking about blogging for one year before I actually started one (I had no idea what to write about and what to call it). Nonetheless, one year later I started a blog and after one week of hard thinking Turquoise Compass came to be. Glad to have you along for the journey.
        Jessica, Turquoise Compass

      • OI!!!! It took *you* forever to choose a blog name?

        I should have made you sign a contract to assign me royalties.

  5. We are birds of a feather. I, too, often travel on my own and I love the high and the low, the remote and the bustling. I get a little more time off as a college instructor, but I have to stretch my dollars a bit more as a result! Thanks for liking a photo on my photo blog; if you get a chance, take a look at my main blog to see how many trips and traits we have in common!

  6. Great intro! I am very intrigued about your mystery job now 🙂 I usually opt to resign before moving country or going on a new major travel adventure, so I look forward to read more about yours, too.

  7. I like your intro, great to know that there is a traveller out there who is just like me 🙂 I, too, have a day job, will try to travel every couple of months when I get the chance, and yeah, I have done my fair share of day tours, independent travels, etc and I travel solo too 🙂
