Sunny Fitzgerald

I grew up in a small town, but was always determined to live big — adventuring to Asia, Latin America, South Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. I have destination expertise in over 20 countries, a BA in International Studies, an MA in Cultural Sustainability, certification in Sustainable Tourism, and more than a decade of experience designing international programs for adventurous and conscientious travelers.

In addition to being a travel specialist, I'm a freelance writer. You can find my work in National Geographic, Travel + Leisure, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Lonely Planet, BBC Travel, and elsewhere.

With a compulsion for asking all the questions and an incurable addiction to understanding the lives and landscapes of the world, I am often on the road – pursuing stories overlooked by mainstream media.
