Travel Writing

I haven’t been everywhere yet, but it is on my list. For as long as I’ve been in journalism, I’ve been writing about travel. I’ve reported from cities including Reykjavik, Edinburgh, St. Petersburg, Sydney and across southern Africa.

I am the founder of Travel with Meena and a regular contributor to Travel + Leisure. I wrote a travel guide to Cuba for TripSavvy in 2019 and a New York City guide for Travel+Leisure in 2021. I am three states and one continent away from my goal of visiting all 50 U.S. states and all seven continents.
