Travel with joy … and reckless abandon. 

Meet Lisa Quinn-Gonzalez

Lisa Quinn-Gonzalez is not a shopper – but a traveler. Her credit cards are to be used for airlines, B&B’s and purchasing a restaurant review book rather than a purse or lip gloss.

A current high school English teacher originally from New York City and now in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Lisa now freelance writes and acts as a travel confidant while raising her budding tween traveler, Lilly.

Having traveled to 6 continents (Antarctica is the “missing one” in case you were curious!) Lisa revels in planning and writing about her next adventure and helping others do the same!

Whether it be Borneo, Turkey, Peru or Alaska, Lisa truly swallows all of the locales she goes to with joy and reckless abandon!
