Welcome to Traverse Blog

Nice to meet you! I’m Megan Arzbaecher and I am a food and travel writer based in Chicago. Even though I work full-time in an office, I am always dreaming about my next trip abroad, and I want to help you do the same. I am passionate about ethical travel, planning amazing adventures and eating delicious local cuisine!

At only 28 years old, I am lucky to have traveled a lot— 6 continents, 44 countries and countless cities. The map below shows all the countries I’ve visited so far in blue, and each year, the list of places I’ve been (and want to go to) continues to grow!
