Meagan Drillinger is a travel writer with a feverish need to see and experience as much as she can on this planet. It started from a young age. She grew up traveling in peculiar ways, like overnighting in convents in the hills of Italy, road-tripping around volcanic Molokai in Hawaii, and taking buses from Mexico City to Zihuatanejo. These experiences ruined her for the better in that they tapped into an insatiable curiosity for exploration. Today, she is the Mexico editor for a travel trade publication, as well as a regular contributor to travel and lifestyle magazines around the world. She wants to use her experience and voice to help travelers make educated decisions about how to travel the world and uplift local communities.

• 10+ years of experience working as a writer
• Currently living a location-independent lifestyle to immerse herself in the places she visits
• Mexico destination expert and specialist
