Tips From A Travel Blogger - With Melanie Yamaguchi
Show Notes

Ep: #11  Now that the world is opening up again and returning to some sense of normalcy, you must be anxious to take a much-needed vacation somewhere.

But if you’re not a frequent traveler or just can’t make up your mind, then today’s podcast will be of use to you! In this podcast episode, I am joined by my good friend Melanie Yamaguchi, who is an avid travel junkie.

By day, Melanie is a senior digital producer and by night, she is a travel blogger at https://outofstate-outofmind.com/

In this episode, she talks about the benefits of hiring a tour company versus going a la carte. Although it may be expensive upfront, we talk about how it saves a lot of time, money, and headaches. 

We also talk about her personal experience being shanghaied in China, and the lessons she learned to prevent it from happening again.

So get inspired by checking out the podcast episode and read her blog at https://outofstate-outofmind.com/ where she blogs about her travels to different places.

Whether you are planning a near vacation or just casually browsing, her blog paints a detailed picture of every place she writes about.
