Find out more about Meryl after the jump:
1) Where have you traveled?
Almost exclusively within the continental U.S.! When I was 11, my parents took my brother and I to Quebec, though. Then when I was 19, our family took a two-week trip to England, Wales, and Scotland!
2) What’s been your favorite trip so far?
I really like checking out another American cities, although I have an expensive habit of moving to them after touring them. I’ve been to Salt Lake City a few times to see a good friend, and I think it’s one of my favorite places to visit. Seattle is also gorgeous!
3) What are three things you always take with you when you travel?
I like to have multiple reading/Audible options, and I recently invested in a good neck pillow because I am 30 and I think about things like that now. Finally, I always pack chocolate.
4) What’s your next destination?
I’m visiting a friend in Switzerland! She just moved there this past fall. I think we’re going to meet in Paris, something I am extremely excited about. I also have a years-long plan to go to Vermont for a long weekend with my two long-distance BFFs. It started out as a joke, but now we’re actually doing it.
5) Give us one reason why you travel.
It gives me the best feelings of freedom and independence to step onto a plane with a coffee and a book and now I’m about to land somewhere completely different! It’s exciting. I can’t get enough of it. I love traveling this huge, beautiful country and I’m excited to branch out into more international travel soon.
