About The Blog & The Voice Behind It

Traveling Nine to Fiver focuses on how to get the most out of exploring the world. This goes beyond catching a flight to a new country or city and into exploring the world around you whether that’s through reading, meeting new people, new food and cooking, writing, and so much more.

For those of us who work full-time jobs, constant travel isn’t a realistic way to explore the world. But that shouldn’t stop us from exploring it. Instead, it’s about taking day trips, exploring a new neighborhood or restaurant in town, learning how to cook a new cuisine, reading a story of someone’s who’s life differs from yours, or exploring yourself through telling a new story.

Here at Traveling Nine to Fiver, we focus on why we love to travel and how to work that into our everyday lives. That you can be an explorer in your life while still be grounded in your home life as well.  We are about finding the right balance in life, whether that’s being a part-time traveler or someone who only gets in a trip or two a year.

The Voice Behind the Writing

Hi! I’m Megan MacNee. I’m a 30-something living in Sacramento, California. My day job is working at a non-profit where I’m lucky enough to say I get to help save lives. A few years back I got the idea to start a travel blog, I love traveling. I wanted to prioritize it in my life and I loved sharing it.About the Voice Behind the blog, Megan MacNee. Beach Sunset.

Over these past three years, I realized how important it is for writing to be a part of my life. I’ve learned that I love to travel because I love exploring new things. But I’ve also learned that isn’t the only way to do it.

You’ll notice I’ve started writing about a greater variety of things including reading, cooking, wine, and living a healthy life. Along with travel. While travel continues to be an important piece of my life, it’s not the only one and I wanted to begin to share more of my favorite things with you all.

I hope to continue to have Traveling Nine to Fiver change and grow as I do and even more I hope you’ll follow me along on this journey to figure out this next chapter of how to be a traveler who is also grounded at home.About the Voice Behind the blog, Megan MacNee. Snow storm in Tahoe.
