A Brief Blog Profile: The Everywhereist
by Thomas Hynes
The story of The Everywhereist is really the story of a woman's marriage. Geraldine's husband travels for work. It's a requirement. He's gone on business quite a bit. For years, Geraldine stayed behind while he was off working. Then one day, she got fired. In other words, life gave her lemons. From there, Geraldine made lemonade. Then she put said lemonade into a to-go cup and went off to see the world with her husband.
Before we get too far along, I have to mention how much I love the banner image on this blog. Silhouetted images of London, San Francisco, DC, New York, Seattle, Giza, Paris, Tokyo and Moscow adorn the top of the page, validating what the tag line says, "that's right, she went there." Or anyway, she's been a lot of places. For example, she went to Portland, OR, and chronicled the experience with pictures of 12 signs she found there. She also takes pictures of the delicious food she finds in the different cities, like this hummus concoction from New York. It's as if there's more to these places than the landmarks found on postcards.
After spending even only a brief amount of time on The Everywhereist, you can tell Geraldine loves to travel. But more so, she loves her husband. As she says, this is her love letter to him. This is digital scrapbook of their time on the road. This is their life together.
