June News 2022 with Lisa Niver & We Said Go Travel:
This month I was a finalist at the 64th Southern California Journalism Awards for book critic! It was my TWENTIETH (20th!) nomination and I have won FIVE times so far! I am now represented by Chip MacGregor of MacGregor Literary, Inc.
I went on a dream trip to Denali, Alaska and went to my 102nd country–ICELAND! Two places on my bucket list that I have always wanted to explore! Explore with me by clicking on the links below to my photos and video!
Thank you to Pursuit Alaska for my bucket list trip to Denali!
Read about my adventures from Anchorage to Talkeetna here and next month I will share another article about our adventures in Denali.
Earlier this year I went to FOUR NEW STATES!! For the first time, I visited Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and Wisconsin–state #43! I went to Elkhart Lake which is an hour from Milwaukee. I loved our adventures and –of course–the cheese! See two articles below about where to stay, eat and what to do:
Thank you to this month’s THEY SAID writers:
Thanks PENN GAZETTE for sharing my alumni news!
Lisa Niver C’89 writes, “I’ve been sharing ways to help Ukraine on my website, www.wesaidgotravel.com, such as ‘You Can Help Keep Ukraine’s Media Going’ and ‘You Can Help Rescue the Refugees at the Ukrainian Border.’ During the ongoing COVID Coaster, I have been working on my memoir about 50 crazy challenges I did before turning 50! I was a two-time finalist for the 2021 National Arts and Entertainment Journalism Awards and recently was published in HuffPost: ‘My Octopus Teacher Was Mesmerizing but There’s 1 Thing that Deeply Troubled Me.’ My other COVID project was to join TikTok—find me @LisaNiver—and my YouTube channel is now over 1.5 million views (youtube.com/WeSaidGoTravel). Thanks to everyone who watches, comments, and shares! I hope my next update is about a book contract for my memoir!”
