Meet Meghan of Gone Rogue Travel

Hiya! I’m Meghan, an American living in London and currently planning my next 4 years of travel — trying to complete at least one activity in every country in the world.

Follow along (and hopefully join) my journey on Gone Rogue, plus find travel tips, ideas, & inspiration.

Let’s get started.

Activity Travel

From hiking to surfing, cooking to painting, photography to yoga, and beyond, I’m taking activity travel to the max and trying one must-do learning experience in each country.

I’ll be writing up a list for Europe soon, so you can follow as I cross each new adventure off of it. In the lineup? Perfume making, Flamenco dancing, dog sledding, wine tasting, fitness, plus tons more.

Destinations

So far, I’ve only ticked 17 of the 196 countries in the world off my list, meaning I’ll have to hit an average of 45 per year to make my goal. I can do that… right?

Since I now live in Europe, hopping to countries like Spain, Norway, the Czech Republic, and more is made all the easier. I’ve had travel adventures across all of them, and am looking forward to the remaining 179 places I’ll get to experience.

Expat Life

Hiya! Welcome to the expat portion of Gone Rogue — Englican: My Split Life. (Because Amerish didn’t work as well).

Here, I cover all things confusing about loving two places, two lives, and two me’s. I’m happy to have you along for the ride… please, allow me share my seat on the struggle bus!

Since studying abroad in England in 2015 (read all about it here), I constantly thought about moving back. Now that I’m finally a grad, I’ve made it happen. It comes with its own set of issues: legal work visas, job sponsorships, flight costs, CV writing, Skype interviewing, filing taxes, and explaining it to my family, to name a few.

I’ve created this page to help others in similar situations wade through the madness (and the despair) that comes from loving a place whose immigration laws don’t love you back.

As I sign off, I will leave you with this little nugget from Miriam Adeney, who explains the reality of a split life like it is: “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere.”

Cheers,
Meg
