Most things worth doing require a little B.O.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.  

Seven years ago founder Kristin O'Connell starting dreaming up a digital magazine, a source for travel inspiration with gorgeous imagery, accessible price points and a fresh take on travel journalism.  Different points of view, practical advice, funny stories and guides that actually spoke to savvy, stylish young professionals with a penchant for the outdoors.

It wasn't until five years later, after thinking and thinking about what B.O. could be, that Beyond Ordinary was finally born in the fall of 2014.  One of the those life events that rocks you to the core happened and a combination of "now or never" and "I need a creative outlet for stress relief" finally brought B.O. to life.  We started small, with only an Instagram account, and have grown from there.  Thank you for following along.  Onward and upward!
