Welcome to Gypsy Wednesday! Every Wednesday, I strive to highlight all the juicy morsels related to travel and beyond.
When I conceived of this wacky idea I never imagined meeting a woman of Carol Perehudoff’s caliber. Carol is a Toronto-based freelance travel writer and blogger. She writes a travel column at the Toronto Star, Canada’s biggest newspaper. While somewhat new to the blogging community, writing a fantastic site full of quips and travel stories at Wandering Carol, the Toronto Star is only the tip of the fountain pen, the meat of her work is in the ink.
Her articles have appeared in a variety of magazines including Spalife, enRoute, Review Magazine, Pure Canada and Royal Wings and a whole slough of newspapers like the Chicago Tribune, New York Post, San Francisco Chronicle, St. Louis Post Dispatch, New Orleans Times-Picayune, New Hampshire Union Leader Post, the Halifax Chronicle Herald, Vancouver Sun and St. Petersburg Times.
Oh, that’s not all. Her narrative essays have appeared in the travel anthologies A Woman’s Europe, published by Travelers Tales, 2004, and Go Your Own Way: Women Travel the World Solo published by Seal Press, 2007. She’s currently working on a travel memoir.
