Traveling is a passion of the Greater than a Tourist book series creator. Lisa studied abroad in college, and for their honeymoon, Lisa and her husband toured Europe. During her travels to Malta, an older man tried to give her some advice based on his own experience living on the island since he was a young boy. She was not sure if she should talk to the stranger but was interested in his advice.
When traveling to some places, she was wary to talk to locals because she was afraid that they weren’t being genuine. Through her travels, Lisa learned how much locals had to share with tourists. Lisa created the Greater than a Tourist book series to help connect people with locals. A topic that locals are very passionate about sharing.
