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 an Aussie girl who’s been lucky enough to live in Australia, the US, and Japan!

I have an on-going love affair with Japan (shhh don’t tell my husband!) and I’m obsessed with sushi, hiking and penguins (random, but I like to be truthful!)

My friends who know me would say I’m all about trying new experiences – even if they scare me!

I share my photography over on my Instagram @thewanderingsuitcase and you can find my super practical travel advice on my blog too!
