I am an aspiring writer, history enthusiast, and lover of the arcane and fortean from Anniston, Alabama, USA. Once I was stung by the travel bug, I was hooked and so I've travelled to many places since, seeking adventures and local experiences off the beaten path. Some of the countries I've visited include Turkey, Greece, Albania, Germany, Spain, Portugal and South Africa. A love for adventure and an eccentric nature have brought me to Atlas Obscura, and I look forward to it opening up more possibilities of life discoveries. I haven't traveled since 2017, but hope to change that, and what Atlas Obscura offers will be many places to see and experience.
