About Angela A
Lives in Louisville, Kentucky
Since Oct. 2012
I love to travel. I am not happy unless I am planning a new adventure, returning to a beloved city, or blazing a trail to somewhere I have never been before. My favorite places in the world are London, New Orleans, Disneyland, and Salem, Massachusetts. I also love to write about everything and anything to do with travel. I have penned travel guides for TripAdvisor on Jamaica, Nassau, Charleston, Savannah, Nashville, Punta Cana, Kissimmee, San Juan, Panama City Beach, Louisville, Cincinnati, Key Largo, Biloxi, Tampa, Cleveland, Clearwater, Branson, Pigeon Forge, and Phoenix.
