I'm originally from the Boston area, but have since lived in Tel Aviv, London, and now Brooklyn. In my 13 years of intermittent traveling, I've been lucky enough to backpack up the east coast of Australia solo, roam around the souks of Marrakesh, and admire grand mansions in the English countryside. Next on my wishlist are Vietnam, Hungary, and Ecuador.
How did you get involved in travel?
"From an early age I was fascinated by other places and cultures, and was finally able to travel when I moved to Israel at 16. I started writing about travel while living in London a few years ago, and never looked back."
