Introducing Time to Talk Travel

Published on: 10th September, 2023

Even the worst travel day is better than a day without adventure.

Hi, we're a group of friends who met as travel writers and influencers over ten years ago. A decade has changed our lives, our jobs, our locations and the way we travel. Our kids are older and travel looks different these days.

What didn't change? The craving for conversation and community.

Enter Time to Talk Travel, a weekly podcast, centered around conversations and a sheer love of hitting confirm on our next adventure.

Every week we'll be here with stories, tips, tricks, lessons learned and inspiration for your next trip.

Let's meet our frequent fliers, the writers of .

On most episodes Ciaran Blumenfeld, Desiree Miller and Nasreen Stump will be leading the travel conversation.

Ciaran left the tech and marketing world to focus on her love of writing. She splits her time between travel writing and photography and writing fiction as Ciara Blume. She lives in California.

Desiree is comfortable behind the camera, producing TV news segments, and in front of the camera telling us about her travels. She's always booking the next trip and planning the next story. Des lives near Atlanta, Georgia.

Nasreen started as a business traveler in B2B sales. Travel writing let her share stories from her trips. She now consults on content and sales writing. Nasreen lives in southern New Hampshire, with easy access to Boston Logan Airport.

Also appearing on select episodes of Time to Talk Travel are Maureen and Shari:

Maureen is a Canadian transplant to the Houston, Texas area. She has worked across a broad range of travel writing and spokesperson roles. These days she travels for business, pleasure and to keep up with her kids competitive sailing schedules.

Shari is located in New York and loves explore international destinations. When she's in New York she loves to head into the city. As a freelancer and social media strategist, she feels lucky to always have new topics and destinations to dive into.

Time to Talk Travel, a podcast for travel enthusiasts, was born out of a need for community. The voices and faces behind TTTT met over a decade ago while navigating online content creation. Their kids grew up together on press trips, they were online cheerleaders for each others successes, and there to provide support to online friends when times were tough. Life got busy. Something was missing - that supportive community they craved. Now they're back- a little older, much wiser, and with a wealth of travel knowledge to drop.
