About A Local’s Look

A day in Aix en ProvenceEver since I learned my first words in French and heard the stories of my parents’ time in Europe, I have wanted to strike out on as many adventures as I can. Now, with a husband who loves to travel as much as I do, we are trying to experience as much as we can all over the world and right in our own backyard.

As a journalist for the past 15 years, I love all things new and exciting.

I love travel and experiencing all the wonders the world has to offer.

This blog takes readers on a journey in which a local, who lives in Myrtle Beach, rediscovers the tourist area called/known as the Grand Strand and takes “A Local’s Look” at other destinations around the world.
