Hi! Nice to meet you and so glad you stopped by to chat. I’m Megan, the person and voice behind Wandertoes.
These days I’m a traveler of a certain age who is trying to fit my travel-passion in alongside emptying my nest (which is a more involved process that you realize going in). My happy place is exploring Europe by train, day-tripping my way from one home-base city to another across the continent.
I love to research and read about the places I’m going to visit while planning a trip that is as long as I can possibly manage without my family thinking I’ve left them. Much of my travel is solo because while my family is awesome and some of the most incredible human beings in the world, they just don’t get into hopping trains and exploring like I do. When we travel together I often leave them behind for the day, hop a train, and go explore.
In the opinions of some (looking at you my dear husband and kids) I do ridiculous amounts of research and note making, and yes, sharing this information as I learn. In their defense, the lovely humans living with me smile and nod and let me enjoy my thing, even occasionally getting interested themselves. (The cat pretty much just wants food, that’s pretty much the extent of her interest. And really – been there, I get it.) So, I share what I learn here, for the likeminded out there.
I’m off planning my next trip now. Or writing about it. Or researching for writing about it. And I’m looking forward to my next day trip laden excursion across Europe, eating the food and enjoying the beautiful as I go.
