Travel Writing: Recent articles

A little over two months ago I shared some of my travel writing with you, my loyal followers. Here’s that post.

I expected to sort of wean myself off of my freelance assignments (especially those I was completing free of charge) but I still find myself enjoying the few hours a week I spend learning about “something else” – not work-related being the key draw.

Here is a collection of my recent articles:

I’d like to visit each of these places! I’ve never been to any of them, despite having spent time in both Spain and Italy. I’ve never been to Asia at all (unless you count crossing into the Asian part of Turkey very briefly while on a boat in the Bosphorus Strait), or to Mexico.

Sigh. I turn 25 this year, and I think it’s time to make a bucket list. Stay tuned.


My recent travel articles

I love to write, and I love to travel. I’ve been exceedingly lucky in my life and have visited all fifty U.S. states, most of the Canadian provinces, several European countries, a few African countries, and even Australia and New Zealand as a baby.

This past fall, as part of my attempt to establish myself as a freelance writer, I began writing travel articles for and I posted my Sioux Falls, SD and Wilmington, NC articles when they were live, as I was excited to be a published writer.

Since then, I’ve gotten a full-time job and settled into a newly structured adult-ish life. But I still write these pieces, because I enjoy the process: the research, the learning, the writing with the intent of hooking would-be travelers. Here is the collection of articles I have written. If you are planning on traveling to any of these cities (or any others), I hope you find these articles both useful and enjoyable to read.

I still hope to become a self-employed writer and editor one day, and I’m currently working on an article on Milan, Italy. Who knows where the road will lead? I don’t know, but I look forward to the places I’ll go.
