Meet Meagan, the woman behind The Fernweh Traveler
My favorite travel buddies are my family. I’ve traveled with them around the United States; Victoria, BC; and even Great Britain!
I have traveled extensively. The US, Canada, Spain, Portugal, England, Scotland, Israel, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Chile — and probably more I’m not thinking of!
I do all my own trip planning. With the exception of Chile (a church mission trip), I plan my own trips. The material covered in the European Travel Course for Women starts from my own experiences, and incorporates research and feedback from others I have traveled with or learned from.
I’ve tested everything I recommend. I’d hate to recommend (or have you spend money on) sub-par travel items, so I make sure that I’ve used it enough to safely suggest purchase.
I’ve traveled enough to have dealt with everything:
- Euphoric, “I’m on top of the world” bliss
- General ill health and the monthly female problem
- Wishing the hot Spaniard waiter would talk to me, rather than the wolf whistles and catcalling I got from male students across the way
- Potential terrorist attacks (that were since labeled “traffic incidents”, though I’m skeptical)
What you can expect to see here:
Advocacy for the B&B travel style. I stay in B&Bs whenever I can, especially in the United Kingdom. Not only do you get to meet lots of new people over food — you don’t have to leave the building without your morning caffeine boost and a meal.
A clean website. Hopefully from a design perspective — but definitely from a content perspective. I will at times share about my faith on the blog; while the travel course doesn’t mention it, it does drive how I approached the content and the things I include (or don’t include).
What you can expect not to see here:
Bad language or hookup info. I divert my efforts elsewhere as my faith leads me.
