hi, my name is stephanie and i’m a travel geek. i admit to obsessive-compulsively making lists of cool places i want to discover before i go on any sort of trip. my relationship with many interesting travel websites and guides can only be categorized as utterly and completely dependent. but instead of helping me battle this costly addiction to traveling and the accompanying literature, my friends encourage my behavior by asking me for tips whenever they go anywhere i’ve been before. so instead of embarking on some kind of twelve-step program, here i am, recommending my favorite travel companions to you guys. don’t say i didn’t warn you.
