Top 3 Reasons to Start a Travel Blog

So I decided to start a travel blog. Why now?

1. I love to travel.

I have always enjoyed traveling and exploring new places-big and small. Whether I’m exploring the beaches of Vinh, Vietnam or visiting a brewery in the small town of Berea, Ohio, I try to take in and truly enjoy new places and experiences. Writing a travel blog will allow me to document these moments that I love so much.

2. I love to write.

Writing has always been fun for me. While I was in college getting my English/Education degree, I dreamed of a time when I would be able to finally write about the things I care about. Now is the time.

3. Why not?

What do I have to lose?
