Meet Sage Scott, the Everyday Wanderer

Bitten by the travel bug as a preschooler when her family moved abroad for the first time, Sage Scott understands the tremendous benefits of travel. But as a single mom with four kids, three cats, two dogs, and a mortgage, she also knows that not everyone is in a position to travel the world for a living.


Now settled in America’s Heartland, Sage Scott taps into her experiences growing up all over the United States and Europe. She writes her travel blog with a midlife traveler’s perspective from Kansas City — the Midwestern cowtown affectionately called the Paris of the Plains and the undisputed Barbeque Capital of the World.


If you’ve got wanderlust and a “real” life, Sage invites you to explore travel destinations, find travel inspiration, and more at Everyday Wanderer.
