HI! I'M MEGAN STARR!

Welcome! This blog began in 2010 as a way to document my life in Norway and my travels to Eastern Europe and beyond. What started as a fun hobby eventually became a site that has helped thousands of travelers plan their journeys across the world- from the Faroe Islands to Kazakhstan.

On this site, you will find hundreds of travel guides, stories, and planning tips. The main focus areas are Scandinavia and the Nordics and the former Eastern Bloc. I love coffee, dogs, and Soviet architecture. Thanks for joining me on an adventure around the world!

GET TO KNOW ME

MEGAN STARR

I am originally from Richmond, Virginia, but have been living in Europe for the past decade. I have a business and marketing background but my true passion is travel (and dogs). 

I have traveled all across the world but I tend to go back to my favorite places. Some of those are: Kazakhstan, Armenia, Ukraine, Serbia, and Norway.
