Our guest is award winning journalist Ruksana Hussain. Originally from India but raised in Oman, Ruksana shares her perspective on travel in America and what she's learned along the way. She previously lived in Atlanta and now resides in Los Angeles. She is the founder of the online magazine Traveler and Tourist where she pens wonderful stories on her travels and cultural experiences. We discuss everything from road trips and small southern towns to Alaska snowmobiling and viewing the northern lights, to attending Mardi Gras. You'd be surprised what Ruksana sees that the average American takes for granted and the differences between east and west coast living.
Ruksana has written for Cuisine Noir, Diversity Professional and Detour Road, a UK-based publication. You can also read some of Ruksana's other works at Ruksanawrites.com. In addition to her travel writing Ruksana pens articles on diversity and inclusion, wellness, technology, and disability.
