I created the “Travellers’ Tales” section to give other travellers an opportunity to talk about their travels. In this section, we embark on a journey through the eyes and voices of intrepid adventurers who have roamed the globe in search of unforgettable experiences. These interviews with travelers offer a unique glimpse into the diverse tapestry of our planet, providing insights, anecdotes, and invaluable tips that will inspire and inform your own wanderlust.
Join us as we sit down with globetrotters from all walks of life, each with their own story to tell, and discover the transformative power of travel through their tales of adventure, culture, and exploration. Whether you're a seasoned traveler or an armchair explorer, these interviews will transport you to far-off lands and ignite your passion for discovering the world, one conversation at a time.
Today I would like to introduce you to Valerie, a travel blogger based in Seattle, USA. She blogs at Maple Leopard.
