I created the “Travellers’ Tales” section to give other travellers an opportunity to talk about their travels. Today I would like to introduce you to Leigh, a travel blogger based in Chicago, USA. Visit her blog at Campfires & Concierges .
I would love to hear about your travels too. Go to “Travellers’ Tales” , fill in the quick questionnaire and email it to me with your blog links.
My name is Leigh, I am a marketing manager for an IT company in Chicago, and a travel blogger in my “spare time.” I have been traveling since I was young, and my favorite trips are outdoor adventures followed up by a fancy hotel & spa.
When I was 7, my grandparents took me to Colorado. It was my first trip away from my parents and I’ve been in love with the Rocky Mountains ever since!
I spent Christmas and New Year’s on a kayak camping trip in Baja, Mexico.
We camped on a remote island for 4 nights and went hiking and snorkelling every day. Plus the food was amazing!
I spent my 40th birthday on an 11-day whitewater rafting trip in the Grand Canyon. It was something I had dreamt of for years. The scenery, adrenaline-boosting rapids, and lack of any outside communication were my favorite parts!
Mexico – I love the food, the culture, the people and still have many destinations within Mexico to visit.
Take a shot at using Spanish, even if it’s just a little bit!
A book or my Kindle
Don’t overthink anything! If you do, you will talk yourself out of it.
Africa – I think the only reason I haven’t visited yet is that I want to “go big”.
I haven’t had too many, but I thought it would be fun to take an overnight train in Thailand. Not long after departure, a roach was scurrying around in my cabin. (I have pretty big bug phobias) So, I didn’t get much sleep that night.
Thank you, Leigh , for sharing your fascinating travels with us!
