Meet the MyNewPlace bloggers!
Travel writer and international woman of adventure, Crystal Beran can usually be found gallivanting around the globe in her epic quest to collect more stories. Once she finds these stories, she gets to work, feverishly recording them back at her secret lair. People who want to read more of Crystal’s work can visit her at her internet home. Presently, Crystal and her cat mostly inhabit the planet Earth. That’s as specific as they can be right now.
MyNewPlace is thrilled to announce our newest guest bloggers!
