Hi there! My name is Claire.
I am a Travel Planning Geek
If you are curious about this website, this is the page for you!
ABOUT ZIGZAG ON EARTH
Create detailed Travel Guides to help you visualize and plan unforgettable trips
For those wondering why the name ZigZag On Earth: I am not a full time traveler, I just Zig to different places and Zag back home and then somewhere else, whenever I have the time.
The Short Story of Why it all started
I think planning a trip if part of the fun of traveling. I spend many hours (shall I say days or weeks?) researching potential travel destinations, deciding on what to see or visit, finding out the best places and times to photography things…
I am a TRAVEL PLANNING GEEK!!!
I get such a high when, after hours scrolling and clicking, I finally find the information I needed. Don’t you?
Well this is why I started ZigZag On Earth . I want to give back to other travel planning addicts by sharing tips and my own photos. Contrary to most travel blogs which share general country posts, I provide detailed information location by location.
I want you to get a high when landing on my website and finding the information you need.
You will note that I don't play with fancy photo techniques or drone footage. I want you to see pictures close to the reality at the time I saw it.
This way you can decide if the place makes it on your itinerary and when you should get there.
No flashing or confusing ads - In fact, no ads at all
I am glad to stay that the ZigZag on Earth Travel Guides are free from ads.
And for any French readers out there, I have started translating my destination guides in French under the name ZigZag Voyages.
You can call me Claire or Frenchy
