Kristy Alpert is an award-winning freelance travel writer with bylines in Esquire, Travel + Leisure, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, Food & Wine, AFAR, Global Traveler, Fodor’s Travel, and more. She has visited all seven continents—paid rent on three—and takes far too much pride in her spice cabinet, which includes juniper berries from Norway, cardamom from Nepal, and a prized ras el hanout from Morocco. She grew up on an airplane as the daughter of an airline pilot and is now married to an Air Force pilot, so, be warned, she will gladly nerd-out on all things travel and aviation when asked. She is a certified technical writer and SEO specialist, and has consulted for national publications on travel content strategies. Kristy is also an E-RYT200 certified yoga instructor, earning her certification in Bali and continuing her education in Rishikesh, Ko Yao Noi, and Carmel.
