Get to know the girl behind the Brown Eyed Flower Child – Taylor!

Hey Everyone! I am Taylor, a mid-20’s world travel blogger, writer and planner, social media maven and yogi from New Jersey.

Prior to starting the Brown Eyed Flower Child, I graduated James Madison University (JMU – Go Dukes!) in Harrisonburg, Virginia with a degree in communication studies, concentrating in public relations. A few years after college, I worked in marketing communications for a few corporate companies and agencies. As you will see throughout my writings and digital marketing content, I am excited to bring forth the skills I have gained through my experiences working at these organizations.

The travel bug bit me when I studied abroad in Salamanca, Spain during summer 2012. During my summer abroad, I traveled through all of North and Western Spain along with Portugal. Ever since then, my sense of wander has expanded to Canada, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Malta, Thailand, Ireland, Finland and South Africa. I am also making my way around the United States and visiting thriving cities and national & state parks. I try to travel somewhere new once a month, even if it is exploring somewhere local to where I live. (I’m trying to hopscotch to all the beautiful countries, states and cities!)

Along with traveling, writing and yoga (I am a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher since December 2016), I enjoy fashion and have become a shopaholic. I also love hiking in the fall, skiing and ice skating in the winter, visiting wineries in the spring, spending summer ¬†weekends at my family’s shore house in Lavallette, New Jersey and exploring hidden gems in the Greater New York City area.

I started travel blogging in March 2017 and it has been the best thing that I’ve ever done because it has brought me so much happiness. Stay tuned for more travel inspiration and stories.
