Featured journalist: Nell McShane Wulfhart
Today we're delighted to feature another freelance journalist: Nell McShane Wulfhart, a professional travel writer based in both Philadelphia and Seoul. Born in Philadelphia and educated in Dublin, Wulfhart's focus is hardly limited to her two home bases; she writes about travel throughout Asia and the US, specializing in original stories from Sri Lanka (in addition to Korea and Philly, of course). You'll find her bylines in places like Conde Nast Traveller, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Slate and others.
If you're wondering how she got started on the travel beat, Wulfhart's first gig came in the role of assistant editor at "an expat rag in Saigon." From there, she began freelancing on the side by writing travel stories about Vietnam. "People always tell me they wish they had my job. But becoming a travel writer is easy - you just need persistence and self-motivation," she writes. Get a taste of Wulfhart's expertise on all three of her specialty locations in her portfolio: don't miss "Five things you can only do in Seoul," "Top 10 budget beach hotels and guesthouses in Sri Lanka" and "A Philadelphia Street, Transformed," for a start.
