Gigi Griffis

Gigi Griffis is a writer and humorist with a penchant for snuggly puppies, new places, and Italian cooking. In May 2012, she sold her stuff and took to the road with a growing business and a pint-sized pooch. She’s been traveling, writing, and falling in love with her life ever since.

Location: Traveling the world with Luna in tow 

Where You Can Find Me on the Internet: Travel blog, Twitter, Facebook.

What I Do for a Living: Write

What I Do for Fun: Travel, hike, and seek out the best international cuisines. 

The Furry Members of My Household Are: A beautiful, therapy-trained Yorkie-Schnauzer mix named Luna. She’s the best travel buddy a girl could ask for. 

My Favorite Things to Write About Are: Travel and inspiration. If something I write inspires you to take a trip, live your dreams, or travel with your dog – I am doing something right! 

My Pet Peeves Are: People who complain about or campaign against dogs on airplanes.

My Guilty Pleasures Are: Young-adult fantasy novels, eating several gelatos on a hot summer day. 

How I Deal with Cat/Dog Hair: Luna is a mix of two non-shedding breeds, so it’s never an issue.

What I Want to Be When I Grow Up: Exactly what I am today: a self-employed writer who travels the world with her best (and fuzziest) friend.
