February Travel Blogger of the Month - Maegan

How many countries have you travelled to?

6 so far!

What was your first overseas trip?

Italy was my first trip and I almost bought a villa and never returned! Italy has it all and the people are so animated and excited to show you their country.

What is your favourite destination in the world and why?

Florence, Italy (anywhere in Italy really) but Florence offers everything to a traveller. There is more culture, arts, food, and friendly people in this city than in many other cities I’ve frequented. There are museums and cathedrals for rainy days, gardens for afternoon strolls, affordable yet delicious cuisine, and an energy in the people that live here that just sets your soul free! Firenze is my home away from home and I cannot wait to return!

What inspired you to start a travel blog?

I have always loved to travel. The words “road trip” has filled me with joy since childhood. I am the friend who finds airline discounts, Airbnb deals, non-tourist attractions, and the local food stops on any trip I take. It was only natural that I create a blog that focuses on my passions while teaching others how to travel affordably. The number one reason people do not travel is money and I find that to be an excuse that we can work around! Travel is for EVERYONE!

What has been the most rewarding aspect of travel blogging?

Other than getting to write and share my experiences about this incredible planet, I would have to say the online blogging community. As you may know, my husband and I are about to move our 2 dogs to Europe when he graduates. Our families are not thrilled with the idea of us leaving the USA but we see no other option. Finding these blogger groups on social media has been the support system I needed to keep pursuing these passions. I have finally found my tribe of people!

Name three things on your bucket list:

1 Be fluent in another language (most likely Spanish or Italian)

2 Learn to dance Tango in Spain or Argentina

3 Publish a travel memoir

Where are you off to on your next trip?

We will be heading to New Orleans, LA next weekend and then off to Portland, OR to try snow shoe hiking for the first time in mid-March.

Apart from travel, name three other interest/hobbies that not many people may know about you:

1 I love to swing dance and listen to big band music because I feel I should’ve been alive in the 1920s.

2 I own every Backstreet Boys Album and can sing you ANY of their songs.

3 My favorite workout is kickboxing or kicklates (a blend of kickboxing and pilates) and you can do these anywhere.
