Laura Begley Bloom
I travel the world, reporting on inspiring people and places.
I’m a travel and lifestyle authority and a content strategist who works with brands to build audiences and drive profitability. In this column, I look at travel through the lens of millennial women, profiling the doers and the disrupters and covering the trends and the destinations that appeal to young women today. I have been writing about travel since the early days of my career, when I started off as a honeymoon editor, even though — ironically — I was single at the time. Since then, I have written for a number of publications, including Food & Wine, Wallpaper, and The New York Times. I have been the editor-in-chief of Yahoo Travel, which was named the top online travel magazine under my leadership. Before that, I was deputy editor of Travel + Leisure. Throughout my career, I have appeared regularly on television, including Good Morning America and NBC Today. Journalism is part of my heritage: My great great grandfather was a Civil War correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. Follow me on Twitter (@laurabegley) and Instagram (@laurabegleybloom).
