About Jillian

Jillian is a travel and culture journalist whose passion for wandering began at 8-years-old. Growing up in Bermuda, Jillian quickly became comfortable on planes and intrigued by the concept of the unfamiliar. 

This led Jillian to pursue travel journalism; from living in Boston, London and Santiago, to exploring Nicaragua, southern China and the new middle east, she appreciates the ability to share stories about destinations and to connect them to a deeper cultural perspective.

Outside of 10Best, Jillian’s work has appeared in Travel + Leisure, Hemispheres, Jetsetter, The Huffington Post, and VICE Munchies.
