Erin Austen Abbott spent years traveling for work, as a crew member for various bands and also as a travel nanny,  before having her own child, Tom Otis. She has traveled to 48 states and 22 different countries. When not traveling with her family, she can be found running her shop Amelia, in Oxford, Mississippi. It was in those years of traveling for work, that Erin picked up so many travel tips and amassed a large suggestion list of sights to see. Her love of art, music, architecture, design and food will be packed into every post.
