Welcome to The Fairytale Traveler!
Christa Thompson 2013
Hi! I’m Christa Thompson. I am no ordinary travel blogger, and you are no ordinary person if you’ve arrived here. So, welcome… to the only destination leading travel resource for all places related to legend, myth and lore.
I’m exploring everything from castles to headstones, from the forests to the seas, and places where legends of monsters and princesses hundreds of years past are still told.
I invite you to follow me on my journey as I travel to where folklore, legend and mythology come to life, in every beautiful, and every dark corner of this world. Are you with me?
This is not all glitter and unicorns, be prepared to be enchanted.
