The Greatest Stories Ever Told
A Travel Blog from Storybooks to Real Life Adventures
Hi! I’m Christa Thompson. Senior Editor and Founder of the Fairytale Traveler travel blog. I am no ordinary travel writer with a blog, and you are no ordinary person if you’ve arrived here. So, welcome to my handy dandy, nerd luvin travel blog, the only travel destinations resource for places related to fairytales, folklore, legend and mythology. I’ve created a monster.
I spend countless hours researching the greatest stories ever told -you know, the ones that made you camp in cardboard boxes and play with wooden swords. I team up with esteemed professors, tour guides, story tellers, local historians and my fans to find the truth about what inspired the tales we’ve grown to love, and find the history behind them. Since I’m really into their progression into TV and film, I also look for killer film locations as well.
Together with my son, the Little Fairytale Traveler now dubbed “the Little”, and the help of the Fairytale Traveler team, we are exploring everything from the ancient stones of Ireland where the fairies dwell, to the pirates of the Caribbean. We are creating a database of destination stories, tips, and hotel reviews that parallel these famed stories and the historic sites, museums, ruins and natural landscapes that carry on their legacies. This travel blog is like no other in the world. It’s where awesome people come to find the coolest places to visit.
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 -we invite you to follow us on our adventures, where magic and fantasy come to life -in every beautiful, and every dark corner of this world.
This is not all glitter and unicorns
