Thanks for visiting The Travelling Munschkin. This blog reflects my personality, my passion for travel and allows me to share my knowledge and connect with other travellers both new and seasoned.

A blog can be a scary thing to navigate, and personally it takes very little for me to be turned off from a blog. Many are crowded, difficult to navigate and are overrun with advertisements. Often I wish they had a “Start Here” button, guiding me through the lay of the land or a site map so I can go directly to what I am looking for. This is mine.
