Katie Jackson was raised on a ranch in Montana but grew tired of seeing more cows than people so she moved to New York City to experience diversity and be close to major airports with many flights. She’s lived in Italy, France, Ireland, and Nicaragua but never long enough to completely nail the local language. She has never owned a car and prefers to hike or bike when she needs to go somewhere. She currently lives in North Carolina and is exploring the Southeast with a boy named Dan and a dog named Yankee. She writes about her travels at www.KatieTalksTravel.com.
