Mark Twain said, "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness." Troy Petenbrink takes Twain's wise words to heart. He loves to visit new places, meet new people and create new memories. And more importantly, he loves sharing his wanderlust with others. When not racking up frequent flyer miles, he can typically be found checking out a new restaurant or hitting a tasting room in the D.C. area. An active member of the North American Travel Journalists Association and the International Food Wine & Travel Writers Association, he has written for Fodor's, Travel Channel, Miami Herald, and many others.
