Welcome to Traveling Atlas! Brandon and Erin here. We are excited that you're here! We are looking forward to sharing our travel experiences in different destinations with you as well as our advice on how best to travel. We have traveled to many countries far and wide, and along the ride we have encountered quite a bit. We actually met while we were on a cruise to the Bahamas - it's very fitting we met on the road!
My name is Brandon Copeland and I graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.A. in Chemical Engineering. However, my true passion lies in travel and writing. My imagination has been boundless since I was a little kid; I was always writing stories about far away lands. When I studied abroad in college, I visited 9 different countries all over Europe and really caught the travel bug. After college, I kept traveling and haven't looked back since. Through travel I had the realization that the beauty of the world far surpasses anything conjured by the imagination. That's why Erin and I started Traveling Atlas, to share this beauty we've discovered and to compel you to find it for yourself.

My name is Erin Lyons and I come from a family of experienced travelers. Ever since I was young, we could never go too long without exploring somewhere new. I grew up in Lynbrook, New York so being 35 minutes away from one of the greatest cities in the world whet my appetite for experiencing a variety cultures. I graduated from Roger Williams University with degrees in Dance & Performance Studies and Global Communications. Along with being a travel lover, I wear many other hats. I am the Operations Manager of a dance studio in Manhattan, a freelance contemporary dancer and choreographer, a dance teacher, and a fitness instructor. I hope as my passions align I get to experience as much of the world as I can.
