What Readers Are Saying

Hilary has been praised for her ability to explain and convey her emotions, situations, and adventures with a raw honesty “unparalleled by other travel writers.” But more importantly to Hilary, her readers rejoice through their comments and e-mails how much her writing style is appreciated.

Out of the many journals that I’ve read as a writer, Hilary’s has been the one I always look forward to.” –Mike

“She has such a beautiful way with words- and I’m not just talking about (her random sayings like) ‘holy s**t balls.’” –Morgan

“Her life is one-of-a-kind and I am so grateful she wants to share it with all of us.” –Ruby

“Everywhere she goes she leaves a piece of herself and takes a piece of the local tradition with her. She doesn’t just travel the world; she becomes the world.” -Jayms

“Like Jack London, Ernest Hemingway, Joshua Solcum, and Jefferson Spivey, Hilary travels the globe solo; but unlike those men she doesn’t conquer territory. She embraces communities and their cultures. The Nomad Grad delves deep and gives you a world unknown to outsiders and tourists. Don’t miss out.” -Gene 

What Travel Writers Are Saying

“Her post was incredibly extensive and had everything you could possibly want. We loved it. The best guest post we’ve received!” -Anthony & Elise Milotic of Positive World Travel

“As editor at large and a travel blogger myself, I’ve come across my fair share of talented travel writers and outstanding personalities. Hilary’s writing, both in terms of quality and creativity, is above the fold.  She’s real, she’s not all fluff, and simply stated, she knows how to write just as much as she knows how to travel.” -Lauren Rains of Outdoor Minded Mag

“Hilary is an absolute delight to work with. I was lucky enough to receive an inspiring guest post from her, which then left me scared that she’d steal some of my traffic to her blog!” -Anthony Middleton of Man Vs. Clock
