By day, Donald Niebyl is a mild mannered biologist for the US Fish and Wildlife Service.

The Fairytale Traveler is a travel and lifestyle blog inspired by the greatest stories ever told. It follows the adventures of Christa and her son Gauge as they explore the world's magical, otherworldly and fairytale-like places, places that inspired great stories, film locations, historic sites, castles, and just about anything suited for princesses and princes. They love myth, legend and lore, books, film, and fandoms. Along with travel stories, travel tips, and travel guides, they feature product reviews, film reviews, and toy reviews. Their latest venture is sharing their story about their brand new home and all the projects and advice that comes along with it.
