About Corinne Whiting

Corinne, an east coast native who recently relocated here from the other Washington, was bit by the travel bug early on. She lived in Strasbourg, France (during her junior year at Georgetown University) and in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she got a masters degree in Cultural Studies. She feels very grateful to have explored incredible spots on our globe ranging from Bolivia and Egypt to Turkey and China, but there are passport pages yet to fill (and travel tales yet to be written!). After serving as associate editor at Where magazine in D.C. for the past five years, Corinne now embarks on a new adventure here as a freelance writer and photographer, contributing to publications like National Geographic Traveler, the Alaska Airlines magazine and Amtrak's Arrive. She looks forward to getting to better know this corner of the country while debunking the rain myths, upping her coffee quotient, hearing heaps of live music and finding her Zen near the water as often as possible.
