About Tanya

I’m a freelance travel and beer writer and a passionate and energetic 30 something - determined to enjoy life and see as much as possible along the way. Recently I lived abroad in London and traveled to 20+ countries within two years! As of January 2014, I'm back in the USA, and currently living in Charlotte, NC. But before all of that, my roots were set in small town America, where I spent the first 23 years of my life living, going to school, and working in the state of Pennsylvania.

I couldn’t wait for a relaxing, peaceful vacation in the Cornish countryside, and to explore the towns I heard […]

Empire state building

Expat life has its ups and downs, and there’s no shortage of reading material out there about living and traveling in foreign places, or about the culture shock that often results from the experience.

“You’re officially a B & T girl,” my co-workers joked when I told them I was moving from Manhattan to Jersey City, New Jersey. Ahh, B&T, the derogatory term usually used by residents of Manhattan to describe those “outsiders” who commute into Manhattan from the outer boroughs via bridge and/or tunnel. Though I pretended to laugh at […]
