Who is Missy?

Hi! I’m Missy and I started Travels with Missy in June 2021 with the hopes of telling my family and friends about some of the wonderful places I had visited in Greece.

It’s now turned into a full-time job and I cannot believe that I get to call myself a travel blogger!

You’ll find that Travels with Missy focuses on travel itineraries, restaurant guides, and general things to do in a certain place.

Countries that Travels with Missy focuses on are mostly Greece, and Italy as well as slowly adding more content on Asian countries like Thailand, Singapore, and Indonesia (Bali specifically).

3 Things to Know About Me

1. Before starting this blog I worked as an international school librarian in China, Laos & Belgium.

2. My favorite countries to visit are (in no particular order): Greece, Italy, Laos, Indonesia, the United States & Thailand.

3. I changed my career at age 36, leaving education behind and pivoting into, well, this! You’re never too old.


Travel with Missy FAQs

Absolutely! I’ve been a keen traveler since I was a small child and I’ve loved exploring for as long as I can remember. Everywhere that has been written about on Travels with Missy has been visited. It may be quite recently, or from before I was capturing media (photographs & videos).

I have a lot of places that I’m super eager to visit in the next couple of years:

  • Japan
  • Colombia
  • Jordan
  • Estonia
  • Slovenia
  • Denmark
  • Canada

I have a cat named Tormund who is an indoor cat. When my partner travels with me for a longer period, Tormund heads off to a cat hotel where he is treated like royalty.

Tormund is named after a Game of Thrones character and does not live up to his ferocious namesake. Tormund Giantsbane.

I think there is just something neverendingly special about New York City. It’s one of my favorite cities and any opportunity to visit, I will take it with both hands.

I’m also a huge fan of London, I still have a lot of discovering to do there. I lived in Sydney, Australia for 6 months when I was 23 and it ticks every single box.

Malta. I’m so sorry to anyone from Malta, but I just didn’t gel with the place. I spent a week exploring the island, as well as Gozo and didn’t enjoy my trip there. You’ll probably never find me writing about Malta for that reason.

Another controversial one is the city of Chiang Mai in Thailand. I’ve been twice and both times left me unimpressed. I loved the walking street markets and the temples, but it just didn’t do ‘it’ for me.

I would split my time between Palma de Mallorca and Bali. 6 months in each place would be the perfect set up!
