Author Lindsay Paul

Lindsay is insatiably hungry for all things travel. Born and raised in Westminster, Maryland, a small city 45 minutes outside of Baltimore, Lindsay is the first and only of her immidiate family to spend any significant time out of the U.S., and travel has defined her life. After a three week to Spain to visit a friend doing an au pair program in 2009, she was sold. She spent four months saving every penny to go back to Europe, originally planning to go for two months, and ending up staying for four. She traveled, hosteled, couchsurfed through Spain, France, and Portugal, worked for one of Lisbon's top hostels for a month and a half and did a short work exhange stint for a farm in the mountains of Malaga. She has since returned to Europe with her husband, Miguel, where they toured Germany, Italy, Portugal, and Spain as newlyweds. They hope to travel to Miguel's home country of Peru sometime in 2013. At home in Westminster, Lindsay works as a manager of human resources at an excavating company, and teaches ESOL for adults through the local community college. She will return to school for a Master's in the fall of 2012, and hopes to spend much of her time in the future abroad as a traveler and a professional.
