  • Eden Arielle Gordon's passion for travel began at a young age, and she has kept consistent and detailed travel blogs across her many journeys, which include a month spent with Buddhist nuns in Thailand and a solo cross-country road trip across the United States.
  • An internship at Untapped Cities while in college inspired her to pursue travel writing, and she has since written for Atlas Obscura about everything from radiation-eating fungi to ancient trees.
  • She loves to fuse her passion for secret, hidden histories with her love of ecology, landscapes, and cities, and the only thing she loves more than travel is writing about it.
