A Passport Affair

 I travel 20 weeks or more every year, notebook and camera in hand, searching, evaluating and writing for A Passport Affair, a curated list of favorite places, unique experiences and hidden spots in Europe and beyond.

Feel free to contact me with any questions about my travels (or yours).  If you are interested in working with me, you can contact me by emailing me directly at Megan (at) apassportaffair.com or reading through my media kit.  If you’re looking for my latest discoveries,  Click here.

Want to know more about my non-traveling life? 

I am a teacher, travel writer  and mother of three. Before moving to London, my family made 13 household moves around the world thanks to the U.S. Submarine Service. Our life of moving boxes and mayhem stayed with our family after our military life ended and The Mister traded in his submarine for a corporate office in London.

I traded classroom life for something less defined and created A Passport Affair from my three favorite things… travel, good food and the joy of discovering something new.


I have three children who are scattered around the world at the moment…one in Haiti, one in London and one at university in Scotland.  I am immensely proud of the work they do and feel privileged they come home to visit or happily join us for the Next Great Family Adventure.
