Here in Huntsville, we've been lucky to work with some incredible travel writers over the years. Travel writers play a crucial role in the trip-planning process - they inspire, educate, and can transport you across the globe, all without having to leave the comfort of your home (a big bonus in our current situation).
It may be a little while before we can travel again, but in the meantime, peruse these travel blogs to get a head start on planning that first fabulous trip post-quarantine.
