Traveler Tuesday Travel Blogger Interview Series

Some travel bloggers get a taste of adventure once they travel as an adult post-college, while others like Megan Starr are just born with the innate knowledge that they want to be out and about in the world. If I had to do my website name over again it would just be Andi Fisher, I love that Megan was smart enough to just go for it! And go for it she has, traveling all over the world on a budget or not, seeking nature, concrete, and coffee!

Let’s meet travel blogger Megan!

Traveler Tuesday - Megan Starr in Svalbard

[1] When and how did you become a traveler?
I have been traveling since I was a young kid. My family moved around a bit (in the US and internationally), so I was in and out of airports before I could spell my own name. I stayed a traveler because being on the road was the only place I felt truly like myself.

[2] What kind of traveler do you define yourself as?
I tend to like going to places that are a bit remote or off-the-path. I prefer going to places where information is lacking on the web so I have the chance to form my own opinions and thoughts about a place.

[3] What do you love most about traveling?
I love meeting people and being able to marvel at how beautiful Mother Earth is. I love being proved wrong about a place (and I love proving others wrong about a place!)

[4] What do you dislike about traveling?
I really don’t like queues. In airports, train stations, anywhere. I am impatient and it is one of my worst traits that I would love to say I’m working on, but I’m not (thanks, Mom). I am also a bit claustrophobic, so I get a lot of anxiety in certain places if they are too crowded.

[5] Why should people travel?
Because you can. Not all of us have the privilege or opportunity to travel, so if you do have this privilege, use it and make a difference in the world.

[6] What famous person would you like to travel with?
Bill Murray

[7] Travel essentials – 3 things you always travel with.
A power strip, my laptop (ugh I am one of those people), and my Aeropress for coffee on the road.

[8] If you’re a foodie, what’s your favorite food city? Do you have a restaurant recommendation?
I just went to Lisbon and it would be remiss of me to not put it here as the food was to-die-for… but I’ll go with New York City. I can’t imagine there is any city on this planet that has as diverse of a culinary scene.

[9] What’s one location on your bucket list?
I’ve only been to Moscow, Russia, but I want to see more of the country- starting with the Kamchatka and Kola Peninsulas.

[10] Do you have a piece of advice for bloggers starting out?
If you came into blogging to ‘get free stuff’, people will sense it in your writing. Come here for the right reasons and work your tail off, and you will be rewarded.
