“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes
Who am I?
Hello and welcome! I’m Linda, a New York City attorney, freelance writer, and editor of Tripping Blonde, a travel and lifestyle blog. I’ve traveled to over 40 countries and lived and studied in Geneva, Switzerland. I’ve become an expert on travel planning and making the most of vacation time thanks to 20 years of travel experience.
Why am I blogging?
Over the years, a number of family members, friends, and friends of friends consulted me for travel advice. After 20 years of traveling to over 40 countries, I finally decided to share my wealth of knowledge with a wider universe and created the Tripping Blonde travel blog. I now provide practical advice for planning trips based 100% on my personal experiences with the hopes of making it easier for others to plan and enjoy their vacations.
My content also goes beyond the basic travel guides of what to see and do when visiting a new place. I provide day itineraries as well as advice and tips for special interests including boozy trips (e.g., wineries, breweries), sporting events (e.g. Kentucky Derby) and shopping guides … all things I enjoy doing while traveling.
Who have I partnered with?
In 2015, I have had the pleasure of working with some really great tourism boards and brands including: Visit Norway USA, Visit Belfast, Corning & The Southern Fingerlakes Region, Tourism Ireland, the Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau, Waterford Crystal, and Dale of Norway.
How do I spend my free time?
When I’m not traveling or working, I can be found spending quality time with my friends and family. I can usually be found grabbing a beer and having a few laughs with friends in SoHo or Hoboken, catching a local sporting event with my husband (Go Giants, Yankees, Nets and Devils!), baking something yummy for my stepson (cheesecake and rainbow cookies are my specialty), or relaxing at my beach house with a nice glass of wine while listening to jazz.
