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 Maegan, a travel blogger based in USA. She blogs at The Wanderlust Dietitian .
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.
Read about Maegan’s travels here,
1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a 28-year-old, southern girl from the USA. I am a registered dietitian by day and a travel blogger and freelancer by night. I am married to my childhood sweetheart, Michael, and we have known each other since we were 4. We have 2 spaniels, Maui & Dexter, and they keep the adventures going at home. Spring of 2018, we are packing up our little life and moving to Europe. We will purchase an RV and gallivant throughout the UK and EU! Be Well and Travel Often!
2. What is your earliest travel memory?
Disney World in Orlando, Florida and I was about 4 or 5. My parents, little sister, and I would stay the night at my Mamaw and Papaw’s house, and get up REALLY early to drive to Disney. I have been to Disney World 17 times, starting at the age of 16 months. However, I have no desire to see Disneyland or the Disney parks in other countries. (not sure why)
3. Where was your last holiday?
Portland, Oregon in March 2017. It was the furthest west I have been in the USA.
4. What was the best thing you did there?
My hubs and I LOVED it because of the people, food, beer, and coffee scene! We tried 8 breweries and 10 coffee shops in the 10 days we were there!
5. What was your best holiday ever? Why?
My husband and I went to Italy 2 years ago. This was our first trip to Europe and we felt like we found our long lost continent and adopted country! We are planning to buy a villa there someday!
6. What is your favourite travel destination?
The Tuscan Valley, Florence, Italy.
7. What must one do there?
EAT! Seriously, you will find some of the best pizza, pasta, and olive oil (freshly pressed) of anywhere in Italy! The people are kind and travel is slower-paced. This is perfect for practicing your Italian!
8. Who is your favourite travel companion/s?
My husband, hands down. He helps me be brave when my social anxiety is kicking in and he brings out my inner child!
9. Name one item you must have when travelling.
HAHA, my nebulizer (breathing treatment machine) for my asthma. I know NERD ALERT!
10. Your best travel advice?
Make a plan. Plan your flights, what cities/countries you want to see, what your average daily costs will be, what attractions you must visit, and where you will stay. Now, take your itinerary and only look at it when you arrive in a new city. Let the road lead you where it wants you to be and stay open to a change of plans. The unexpected moments are what have made our travels memorable! This what I live for!
11. The one place you want to visit before you die?
I already saw Italy, that was my one place. I still have a lot left to see in Europe though and I would love to venture to South America and learn to tango.
12. Your favourite place in South Africa?
Haven’t been yet but can’t wait to visit.
13. How can people connect with you?
