I'm a freelance travel writer whose guides have been published in EuroCheapo, Not For Tourists, World Nomads, The Long-Term Traveler's Guide among others. I've also spoken on panels talking travel and influencers at Social Media Week and Society of American Travel Writers Editors Council. I'm a believer in annual travel sabbaticals, off season deals, solo trips abroad and making it all happen on a budget.
