Terri Marshall was born a Southern girl just steps from a Civil War battlefield. Today she lives in New York City just blocks from Grant’s Tomb. She left her southern comfort zone (and everyone she knew) to tackle the Big Apple in pursuit of her dream to become a writer.
At home in New York, Terri sees the city through Southern eyes. Unlike a native New Yorker, Terri talks to strangers, makes eye contact and finds humor in all the craziness that is New York – especially on the subways. She has embraced her city and offers customized itineraries for visitors to her new hometown. Coming in 2017, Terri will also be offering customized tours.
As much as she loves New York, sometimes she has to get outta town to travel the country and the world in search of stories. She loves a good road trip and has driven cross-country numerous times. She’s also road-tripped through Germany, Holland, Belgium and Belize. She has driven a reindeer sleigh in Norway, fished for Piranha in the Peruvian Amazon, harvested cacao in the jungles of Belize and hand-fed Little Debbie snack cakes to black bears in West Virginia. Along the way she drank her share of wine, Aquavit and Pisco Sours – OK maybe she drank more than her share. Terri shares her adventures in her published articles.
