Sarah Rewold was one of Swift Passport’s favorite people of 2010. We are so excited to feature her blog “Places I’ve Found” on our blog today. Thanks for letting us share Sarah. I’m a huge fan of your blog especially because there are so many cool pictures. It makes me want to travel.
Can you tell us a little bit about your blog?
I’ve started reading a lot of blogs lately – everything from fashion to retail marketing to architechture and beyond – so i thought, i could create a blog that is about travel and geography – two of my passions in life.
What inspired you to make the blog?
I used to write when I was younger and just got back into it writing press releases for my company – so it was just a natural progression – that and everyone else in my dept had a blog so I had to join in
What’s your favorite place you found and why?
It’s funny – the name of the blog is actually after Elton John’s Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters – there’s a line in the song that says “I thank the lord for the people I have found”- since that’s one of my favorite songs ever – I decided to incorporate it into the title of the blog. but, to answer your question – so far – I’d say Ponza, Italy is probably the most interesting place that I’ve traveled to date. Please see the ‘caldera islands’ post
Which place do you think you will visit first?
I really want to visit Central and South America. Just need a few more vacation days to make that happen.
where have you gone recently/ any upcoming trips planned?
I just went to Vieques, Puerto Rico – it’s a small island just east of the “big island” of PR – the island seems to be right on the brink of turning from a sleepy, secluded place to a haven for the wealthy traveler – I’m really glad we got to see it before everyone else does.
How do you hope that your blog affects others?
It’s still so new, so I challenge myself to think of things to write about that people would care to read.
That’s a very challenging task. That’s another reason why pictures are good. Any shout outs?
I’d like to shout out to my parents who inspired me to be an adventurist and to you and Rob – for giving me this opportunity and also for having inspiring travel stories that I can share on the blog
Thanks for putting our story on your blog Sarah, good luck!
