America, American, Interviews

Megan McGinty

1. Where are you originally from (country and city)?

Newtown, Pa, USA

2.  Do you currently live in the same place where you were born?

No, I moved to another part of the US 10 years ago. Now I live in and area where you’ll frequently see people being pulled around in a horse and buggie instead of driving a car.

3. What do you do for a living?

I’ve worked a lot of different jobs over the last couple years to support my current lifestyle. I was a visual merchandising lead which I loved but the store I worked in, unfortunately, closed. It ended up being a blessing in disguise because I’ve been able to spend the last two years throwing myself into new and exciting experiences around the world.

4. What kind of traveler do you think you are?

Pretty laid back, I guess. I really enjoy hiking and nature so I tend to go more toward those types of things but I’ll go with whatever is happening.

5. What is important for you while traveling and why are you traveling?

I really enjoy a relaxed social atmosphere. Mix that in with some history and a view and I’m there all day! I like to travel to learn. I’ve learned more about world history and current events chatting to people I’ve met than I ever have in a classroom.

6. What kind of travel advice would you give others?

Say yes to almost everything, especially if travel Megan Mc is new to you. Someone else gave me that advice a few years ago and whenever I follow it I have a blast!

7. What is your next mission/trip?

I’m heading to Bosnia in a few days. Someone showed me a rafting camp that sounds really fun!

8. What is the best place you visited so far?

This question took me a really long time to answer! I really liked Vietnam. I took my time there and dove into unique cultural experiences.

9. What is a place you want to visit in the future?

I’ve been dying to go to Jordan! I think the history and artwork out of that part of the world is so interesting.

10. What is your favorite place in your home country that you would recommend to others?

The whole state of Montana! There are breathtaking national parks and little hot springs. Also people are so relaxed and friendly. 

Austin, Texas too. It’s a super cool city and there’s a really yummy BBQ place about 45 minutes out of town.

11. (If answer to Q2 is “No”) What is your favorite place in your current country that you would recommend to others?

I still live in the same country.

12. Do you have any other tips or tricks based on your experience that you wish to share?

Do what is going to make you happy. Even if you miss ticking off some “must see landmark or location” because you really like something else. No one is going to remember what you post on Instagram.
