Free things to do in Boston - Harvard Arnold Arboretum

Why, hello there!

Welcome to The Wandering Suitcase, my name is MG and before we get-down-and-dirty, I thought I would introduce myself.

You know, before I awkwardly proclaim to be your best friend and then you decide I’m weird and oh-too-awkward.


A little bit about me…

My name is MG and I’m a traveler, a wanderer, and a photographer. I’m a little bit awkward, I love Netflix a bit too much, and I have a serious chocolate chip cookie addiction.

I used to work in Finance back at home in Australia (I know, I’m basically the former spawn of Satan!) But I always had the niggling feeling in the back of my mind that the corporate life wasn’t for me. 6 months ago I uprooted my Aussie life and swapped it for Boston, USA where I remain happily corporate-jobless but convinced that regardless of whether the full-time-job-world is for me or not, travel is something I want in my life every day.


What can you expect?

The Wandering Suitcase was created out of love – I love everything and anything travel related, and it is an honor to be able to write and create useful content for my readers.

My goal is to make travel accessible – you don’t need to be super rich or rollin’ dough to have a little bit of travel in your life (full-time job or not!)

What will I be sharing?

  • My travel adventures to inspire you to see the world
  • Tips and guides on travel destinations
  • How to see more of the world on a budget; and
  • Ramblings of my inner mind – including why macarons are the key to one’s happiness
