My life-long passion for travel has taken me to six continents and more than 50 countries, some of which during 20 years of travel writing and photography I’ve published stories for many print and online media outlets. I write freelance travel articles and blogs, host webinars, speak at conferences and teach writing at universities. My company Kit Bernardi & Associates provides strategic travel marketing, branding and media consulting services.
I am a contributing editor for Meredith Corporation’s Midwest Living Magazine, a multiple Lowell Thomas Award winning publication covering lifestyle and travel in twelve Midwest states. Having written two decades for the magazine and its website, I always look forward to hitting the road in the Heartland finding stories and stopping for homemade pie.
From the sweeping Kansas prairie to the thin air slopes of Mount Everest, I travel to experience our amazing planet’s diverse peoples, cultures, foods, cities and natural beauty. Here I share my travels through my words and photographs.
