Once you travel frequently, it may feel as necessary as breathing. Last year I visited Dubai, Perth, Melbourne, San Francisco, Gettysburg and many other places. I can't get enough. But downtime at home with friends and my cat is also welcome and more appreciated after every trip.
Based in Santa Monica, Terry Gardner lives for adventure. Her passion for scuba diving, travel and the environment actually led her away from stand up comedy into travel journalism. Her eco-side favors reducing and reusing technology but her geek-freak side goes gaga for gadgets. Terry reviews travel apps and gear and writes travel stories for Chicago Tribune and other Tribune papers, including Los Angeles Times, The Baltimore Sun and Orlando Sun Sentinel. She also contributes to the Los Angeles Times Travel & Deal blog (http://articles.latimes.com/writers/terry-gardner) and the Dallas Morning News travel section. Other outlets include the business travel magazine, Global Traveler, and two cutting edge millennial and tech-oriented blogs: BreakingModern.com (http://www.breakingmodern.com/?s=Terry+Gardner) and aNewDomain.com (http://anewdomain.net/author/terrygardner/).
