Liz Shemaria - Stride Destination ExpertItaly, Spain, Portugal, Myanmar, Turkey
Liz comes from a family of storytellers. She was first inspired to explore the world by her intrepid aunts' tales of solo travel in their 20s—Liz has since traveled to nearly two dozen countries, while the quest for a great story has led her to report from Thailand and Myanmar, and live in Florence, Italy.
Liz believes powerful storytelling can spark positive change in the world. In 2015, she launched Echopop.org to work toward that mission.
No matter how many places I visit, my heart will always belong to Italy. Florence, Positano, and Desenzano del Garda are places I must experience during every visit to Italy.
Liz can't wait to get back to Myanmar and Italy and also sees a trip to India in her future!
