Our January interview of the Evergreen Writer's Corner is with travel blogger, Tonya Hester. Tonya and her husband, Seth, spend most of their time globe trotting to some of the most beautiful destinations in the world. Learn more about her journey below!

Q: Where are you from?
A: I was born and raised in Gainesville, GA where my husband, Seth & I currently live. We love being close to our families. We’re about an hour away from Hartsfield Jackson Airport which is the main hub for Delta so we have lots of flight options when it comes to our trips! 
Q: Where did your inspiration come from to start travel blogging?
A: I didn’t travel much growing up, but I had an Elementary School teacher that taught us a lot  about Roman and Greek mythology, so from a young age Greece became by first official bucket  list destination. I’m lucky to have found a spouse that enjoys traveling and adventure as much as I do so we’ve been exploring the world ever since we met. Our honeymoon was our first big  trip and first time traveling to Europe. I’d say that was when the inspiration for the blog hit me,  although it took a while before I actually took the first steps to making it happen! 
Q: Where is your favorite place you've traveled and why?
A: My favorite place that we’ve traveled to is Croatia. We had stops in Dubrovnik and Split while on  our honeymoon cruise. I didn’t even plan anything for those days of our trip, because I was  more excited for Greece and Italy. Those days ended up being my favorite since we roamed  around aimlessly. We spent the day ATVing and finding some Hidden Gems in Dubrovnik and exploring the most beautiful national park (Krka National Park) near Split.  

Q: What’s one thing you can’t leave the house without when doing your work? 
A: Aside from our passports - My camera! I have an iPhone 11 Pro and a Canon M50 that I use to capture all of the photos on our trips. I love sharing the sights we are able to see and would hate  not being able to show others how amazing the world is. There is so much more out there than I could have imagined before becoming a more avid traveler.  
Q: If you could put one thing on a billboard, what would it be? 
A: “Travel the World” - If there is one thing that I’ve learned from traveling, it’s that your entire  perspective can and will change once you’ve explored other places and cultures. You can’t truly wrap your head around what all there is out there until you’ve been outside of your bubble. My main goal with my page is to share with others those places so they can gain inspiration and the  motivation to see as much of the world as possible.  
Q: How can people find you? 
A: I’m most active on my Instagram page so the best place to connect is there! All of my blog post are available on my website and Pinterest. Then, if you want to shop any of my looks or travel  products you’ll find those on my profile in the app! I love getting to know other travelers so be sure to reach out – feel free to follow me on any of my social media & message me so I can say Hello! 
Thank you Tonya and Seth! Here's to great experiences in 2021...
