Madelyn Miller, The TravelLady
Writer and Publisher Madelyn's first trip (that she can remember) was in the back seat of a car. She doesn't remember the destination but is sure that it was to visit one of her Dad's many relatives. Her dad loved to drive and see family. Her first solo plane trip was at the age of 13 when she flew to Atlanta and then somehow managed to get on a bus to Macon, Georgia. She thought she would never let her kids do that. Yet by the time he was 13, son Greg went to Taiwan with a friend. Her daughter also has the gypsy spirit and seems to drive cross country several times a year. Maybe the travel gene is genetic. Madelyn was an exchange student to London in her last semester in college. And then went to NYU for a semester on a program called Junior Year in New York.. Now she satisfies her wanderlust by doing stories covering stories for her websites. Read her stories on,, , , and She has a couple more websites up her sleeve. She also writes for LatinaStyle, Downtown Magazine, (New YOrk), Sportspages, Nashville Business Journal, Today's Dallas Woman, Dallas Fort Worth LifeStyle, She hosted a travel radio show called the Tattered Passport and did segments on Fox TV as the Travellady. She has recently became a vegetarian.
