Welcome to the party!

My name is Emma, and I first declared I wanted to be a travel writer as a junior in high school. Just over a semester away form graduating with my bachelor’s in journalism, this has been a long time coming. This site is home to my blog, The Stagnant Traveler, as well as my writing and photography portfolios. Interested in watching a gal from the Mid-West chase her dream of traveling the world for a living? Let’s hang out.
