WELCOME TO DOTTED GLOBE
Dotted Globe is a USA focused Road Trip Travel Blog.
We are firm believers in two things: There are no bad road trips and Road Trips are the only way to travel.
We help you explore the country by going on amazing road trips. And when we say amazing, we mean out of this world, blow your socks off, stunningly spectacular journeys like the iconic Pacific Coast Highway in California or the epic Grand Canyon road trip or an adventure down Historic Route 66.
On Dotted Globe, we offer popular road trip planners and travel tips to our favorite destinations. We write for road-trippers who enjoy being on the road, learning in-depth about their destination, getting off the beaten path, and being flexible with their itineraries. Read our post on the Best USA road trips to take atleast once to know more.
Apart from road trip itineraries, we also have many USA destination guides for popular cities including New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and more. To know about our favorite destinations, read our post on Ultimate USA Travel Bucket List.
A majority of our content on Dotted Globe also reflects our individual travel interests. That’s why, you will find experiences and destinations celebrating cultures, historic sites, nature and wildlife, and culinary travel.
As a traveling expat family, we also offer many resources for families who love to travel including kids travel gear recommendations, tips for traveling with kids, and guides to kid friendly destinations.

Meet Ketki – The Girl behind Dotted Globe
Hello. I’m Ketki and I started Dotted Globe in 2017 to figure out how this whole ‘start a website and earn a six-figure income’ thing works.…okay, just kidding!
None of the corporate jobs I had suited my entrepreneurial soul and so I decided to earn a living doing what I love….which is…..traveling with my
completely slightly crazy family – my husband Chaitanya and toddler son Samar.
We are Indian expats living in the United States since 2010 and love traveling with our Indian passports. We have had some crazy adventures on the road and enjoyed them all!
Want to know more about us? You can check out all the quirky details including the time when Samar ate a grilled Iranian pigeon on our Who Are We page or follow us on our favorite social media channels to know our latest weather-eclipsed shenanigans. You can also read all about our amazing road trips or start by going through our favorite travel experiences like floating on the Dead Sea in Jordan.
GO ROADTRIPS! Follow us on social, pretty please?
