We’re back! After re-launching a new season of Traveler Tuesday with Ric of Global Gaz last week, I return to introduce you to another Boghouser I met in Indianapolis in June, Brianna of Archives of Adventure. In fact, I’m going to acquaint you with a whole slew of travel bloggers from BlogHouse, because honestly, it was one cool collection of peeps!
Brianna focuses on those who “live average lives: Average income. Average career. Average lifestyle.” But let me tell you something, there is nothing average about Brianna! I found her sweet, friendly and enthusiastic about the blogging space. For someone who has “only” been traveling 10 years, she has covered a lot of ground.
Let’s meet travel blogger Brianna!
 When and how did you become a traveler?
I became a traveler in 2007 when my family and I moved to Sydney, Australia for a year. Leaving behind the comforts of my home in Michigan and starting life brand new, I learned how incredible and life-changing travel can be. Since then, I continue to make travel a priority in my ordinary life.
 What kind of traveler do you define yourself as?
I’m more of a budget traveler, but not to an extreme level. I will happily travel solo or with others. I like to visit places that are less frequently traveled.
 What do you love most about traveling?
I love how much travel can teach you. I can look back at every trip I’ve taken and identify a key lesson that I’ve taken away.
 What do you dislike about traveling?
I get sick or experience some kind of bodily issue every time I travel. I’ve contracted Zika virus, completely lost my voice, had my fair share of digestive fun, among many other problems. I like to tell people that while I love to travel, my body does not…
 Why should people travel?
Travel changes you in so many wonderful ways. You learn new things about not only the world but about yourself. It’s just something you have to experience for yourself, in order to understand.
 What famous person would you like to travel with?
I’m a big Tom Hanks fan. He’d probably be good fun to hang around with.
 What won’t you travel without?
Pepto Bismal! No explanation required.
 Travel essentials – 3 things you always travel with.
My comfy elephant pants
 If you’re a foodie, what’s your favorite food city? Do you have a restaurant recommendation?
I wouldn’t really consider myself a hardcore foodie. But I do have to say that I’ll plan a trip to New York City just to eat all the foods!
 What’s one location on your bucket list?
Antarctica has been on my bucket list for years! Someday I’ll get there….
 Do you have a piece of advice for bloggers starting out?
Be patient and willing to work hard for a successful blog.
