About

Marian Krueger is a travel writer who is obsessed with seeing as much of the world as humanly possible. She grew up in Warwick, New York and received her B.A. in English from the University of New Hampshire and her Master’s degree in English (Simmons College – Boston). The travel bug bit her hard on her first trip abroad at age 9 to Germany and she has been traveling ever since.

Whether traveling by cruise ship or airplane, staying in a luxury resort or cabin, she truly believes that there is always something to learn along the way whether from the destination or the people you meet along the way.
