Hey there! It’s nice to meet you. Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog today. My name is Margaret. I’m a high school student from Oregon who has always had a passion for travel and sharing my adventures with my friends, family, and anyone else who was interested! Instead of posting lengthy Facebook updates that would eventually become lost in the void of the Internet, I decided to start a blog. So here we are! While I’m not traveling constantly (I am still in school after all) I hope to post daily, or as close to daily as possible, whenever I do travel and share my plans and thoughts for future adventures in the meantime. The name, Earth Cover to Cover, was chosen for two reasons: one, there is a beautiful quote by St Augustine (you can find it in the blog’s tagline) about the world being a book which rings very true for me, and two, I was a very shy kid. Growing up I always had my nose in a book because the world was a scary place, but through literature I could travel to magical, far-away lands and cast myself as the heroine in epic tales. Now, I’m determined to step out of my comfort zone and create my own stories. I hope you’ll join me as I experience our amazing planet, cover to cover.
