Raised in the Midwest, Lindsay Neff’s early travel was mostly in the worlds of books, but at the age of 12 she got her first abroad experience in England, Ireland, and Wales. Since then she’s sought new horizons, from trips to Boston and New York City, to a semester in Italy. After studying English and Philosophy at the College of Wooster, Lindsay left Ohio for NYU’s Summer Publishing Institute and moved to Queens. As an editorial intern, she hopes to put her book-nerd roots and love for new places to good use at ShermansTravel.com. Most Recent Trip: The Big Move to the Big Apple. Next Trip: Washington, D.C.
