LG Contributor and Social Media Intern Kat is entering her senior year at Tufts University in Boston and still transitioning from a soggy yet life-shifting semester in Edinburgh, Scotland (-and on a mission to change society’s general mindset about haggis). With a constant need to feed her wanderlust, she can’t quite stay in one place for too long and spends her time exploring, reading, and seeking out new places and FREE things to do. Kat is a travel blogger, creative writer, and blossoming social media guru dipping her size ten feet (withhold your judgment!) into whatever new, exciting pursuits come her way. Follow her on twitter @katelyse One thing I’d never travel without: A sense of adventure... and a notebook with some writing utensil… wait, I can’t pick just one. My favorite way or place to “get lost”: On a bike. Even if you don’t find your way back to where you started.

In Scotland, a meal of neeps, tatties and (vegetarian) haggis found its way into my wary heart; in Portugal...

#FollowFriday: The Best of Travel in Social Media (Part 5!)
Truthfully, I didn’t pick the best day to be scouring the world wide web for awesome blogs. In case you hadn’t heard, many sites today are participating in an “Internet Blackout” in protest of two anti-piracy bills, SOPA and PIPA. From Wikipedia to some of the travel community’s own personal...
