Lured by an opportunity for paid travel after graduating from the University of Missouri, Molly Fergus accepted a gig as an Oscar Mayer Wienermobile driver. The yearlong stint as a "hotdogger" took Molly to 20 states, two countries, and one tropical island – and cemented her travel addiction. Now that she doesn’t pilot a hot dog on wheels, Molly’s busy tracking down top airfare deals and scheming the best ways to skirt all of of those pesky fees. Her wanderlust has pushed her to zip-line through Ecuador’s cloud forest, hike Italy's stunning Cinque Terra, and sample a traditional calf's brain dish in Barcelona. Her latest adventure has brought her from the Second City to the first (the Big Apple!), where she's joined up with the online editorial team at as an associate editor. Most Recent Trip: Playa del Carmen. Next Trip: Cambodia.
