Traveler Tuesday – Zach Everson

Traveler-Tuesday
One of my favorite days of the week! Another Traveler Tuesday where I get to interview travel bloggers near and far! Today I am super pleased to introduce you to Zach Everson a veteran when it comes to travel writing. Zach is currently working for MapQuest Discover where he is the travel news/travel buzz editor (fun job). Prior to that he was a prolific freelance writer for sites like WSJ, enRoute, Eater and USA Today.

Let’s meet Zach!

[1] When and how did you become a traveler?

Growing up outside of Boston, my family took a lot of road trips, mostly down the East Coast to Washington, D.C. and the Carolinas. And when I was 14, we drove cross-country.

[2] What is travel to you in 10 words or less?

Any time you’ve left home.

[3] What is your favorite mode of transportation and why?

I love the peace and quiet of airplanes.

[4] What do you typically do while traveling by plane?

Write. Flying is a good time to focus without the distractions of email, social media, phone calls, etc.

[5] What is your favorite travel memory involving food?

On a visit to the Rome Cavalieri, I ate at La Pergola, the Italian capital’s only three Michelin star restaurant. It overlooked St. Peter’s.

Be persistent: make it a habit to post daily.
