“I am the person on the planet least qualified to travel and I literally wrote a book about it.” – Geraldine DeRuiter
Today’s conversation is with Geraldine DeRuiter. You might know Geraldine from Twitter or her blog, the Everywhereist. Geraldine is delightful and I know you’re going to love our chat.
Geraldine is an unlikely travel blogger. Unlikely because she’s, well let’s just say, she’s an uncomfortable traveler. You’ll hear why she’s not the best of travelers during our conversation.
She’s best known for her blog, the Everywhereist. Her writing has been called “consistently clever” by TIME Magazine and “dark and hilarious” by the New York Times. Her blog post, I Made the Pizza Cinnamon Rolls from Mario Batali’s Sexual Misconduct Apology Letter received more than a million views. And if you haven’t already read it, you must. There’s a link to it below.
In addition to chatting about her unlikeliness as a travel blogger and her love for baking and “real” cinnamon rolls, we chatted about aging, living to 140 years old, how she ended up standing at the airport in her underwear and how her blog and twitter posts have turned more political since the November 2016 elections.
I had so many other questions for Geraldine but I was under a bit of a time constraint and we couldn’t dive into a couple of subjects I was so looking forward to chatting about including her brain tumor experience. But we both agreed that we need to sit down again to chat so look for a Part II with Geraldine hopefully in the not too distant future.
With that, please enjoy this conversation with Geraldine DeRuiter.
