Nice To Meet You – About Julie Munsch

My name is Julie and I am from Toronto, Ontario (Canada). Travelling and experiencing different cultures are my biggest passions and I have been fortunate to travel to more than 55 countries. I have also lived in a few different places around the world including Nice (France), Providenciales (Turks & Caicos Islands) and Montreal (Quebec, Canada).

The idea of this blog was in fact brought to me. On a trip two years ago to Swaziland, Mozambique and South Africa I would write friends and family each day. My emails made it into the hands of a freelance travel writer who then sent them to the editor of a travel magazine. It was suggested to me that I pursue this as a career and so here I am.

I am the daughter of two writers (one occupationally, one leisurely – both fantastic). I have always been an avid traveller/adventurer and, with thanks, I blame my parents for instilling this need in me. They have inspired in me the quest for knowledge, the desire to share it with others and an empathetic and benevolent spirit.

With that said, please bear with me. I am not a journalist nor do I pretend to be one. I aim to be as accurate as possible and I look forward to opening dialogue amongst my readers. My own blog/domain will be up for my next trip in early 2012; this blog is being launched for my Oct – mid November trip to Borneo, Brunei, the Philippines and Tokyo.

All photos on the home page have been taken by me.

Happy Reading!

P.S. I am Canadian and will be writing as so, with varied spelling from our neighbours to the south.

P.P.S. I tend to be very sarcastic in nature. Go with me being sarcastic if you’re not sure whether I’m being serious.
